Full Answer

Telephone calls or texts which appear to be from this area code are actually spoofed as a way of working around caller identification systems. Spoofing involves sending false information over the line so as to disguise the real identity of the caller or text sender. This can be done by logging into a third party service or using software that relays a number other than the one that is actually sending the call or text. Using invalid area codes such as 547 ensures that the call cannot be mistakenly traced to any valid phone numbers.
