Hello there,

If the person at the other end of the line is willing to listen to what your saying there isn't anything illegal regarding your question.

When you say spoofed call, are you saying you are calling from an unknown number? Or are you going to set up a cell phone that can be thrown away after using it?

Either way you don't have anything to worry about if everything is true. If you are making stuff up and defaming one's character that is another problem where you can be sued for slander.

If you would like to discuss this further feel free to contact my office.
