Okay......

A friend of mine has an iPhone 4s and I'm his goto guy with tech issues. But I'm at a loss so wanted to turn to the masses here. Today he had gotten several phone calls from a number purporting to be his number. And additionally, today, someone charged $650.00 on his debit card. Needless to say the transaction was not authorized.

His phone is jailbroken.

No idea if the two are related but is it even possibe to spoof a number and or hack into an iPhone?

Thanks
David

Let's say your friend's number is 1 234-5678. He is getting phone calls from that same number (1 234-5678)?

Does he store his credit card info right on the phone? If not, there is no chance the $650 is the result of a "hack", thus rendering this a coincidence.

Yes, he's getting calls from "his" number. It's strange. Also he said his debit cards number is not on his phone. So that may just be a coincidence.
