That's a good thing for people to remember.  You can't rely on Caller ID to authenticate people who call you because it can be spoofed so easily.  

 

If you get a call from a company that you deal with (especially your bank) and they ask for personal information, you should ask if you could call them back at a number that is published on their website or your statements.  You could verify numbers by Googling them and it should return a result on the company's official website.
