In a recent TWIT episode, Kevin Mitnick described a new service called SpoofCard that gives you some interesting new abilities when you make phone calls, all by using a special kind of calling card:

How can I change my voice?

SpoofCard offers the ability to select a Male or Female voice when making a call. The feature works in real-time and allows the caller to speak in a normal tone while the person on the other end will hear the changed voice.

What are the advantages of Caller ID spoofing?

Caller ID spoofing gives business professionals the ability to manipulate their identity to their choosing and stay anonymous. Caller ID spoofing is also valuable in defeating popular telephone services such as “*57 Call Trace”, “*69 Last Call Return”, “Anonymous Call Rejection” and “Detailed Billing”. Private Investigators will find Caller ID spoofing valuable for pretext calls.
