Caller ID is not reliable

I think I've said this before, but just in case I didn't, Caller ID is not reliable. It is fairly easily spoofed/faked. So don't rely on it as a concrete way to ID who is calling you. It is still useful in screening calls most of the time, but someone could call you from a 'good' number by faking it. And if you're a software developer, don't use it for authentication.
