I got a call call on April 20, 2016, which is today as I am writing this. The phone number displayed is 1-000-000-0029. I did not answer it and it went to my answering machine.

The voice said they were from convergent Outsourcing, a Debt collector, then gave the phone number of 1-855-343-7890.

Clearly the phone number has been spoofed. The FDCPA says:

Title 47, U.S.C. Section 227(e)(1) (2012). Although the TCPA does not provide consumers a right to sue for using spoofed telephone numbers, it has expressed Congress’ finding that spoofing is deceptive and, therefore, is a deceptive trade practice.

People should be allowed to sue for spoofed numbers, because it has already been determined that it is a "deceptive trade practice".
