In some areas, spoofing your number is relatively easy - illegal in most places, impossible in some. This could be a way to get going without buying countless virtual numbers.

For more complex tactics, we'd need to know more about the target: OS, model, OS version, attack surfaces (in this case that could be Facebook Messenger, Signal, SMS and such), estimated location and anything else you got.
