Is it possible to spoof cellular data? For example place a transceiver some where and communicate with a cell phone similar to wifi spoofing?

    That's what Stingray does - so, yes, apparently it is possible – crovers Oct 27 '16 at 20:51
  • "spoofing" is the wrong term - you need to search for "rogue cell towers" - you will find many hits – schroeder Oct 27 '16 at 21:01
  • yes, it's possible, but for laymen and individual hackers it's too complicted and expensive. – dandavis Oct 28 '16 at 18:58

As shown by state actors (see: stingray) and attackers around the world:

yes. it is. And it's not even very hard.

In fact, GSM has a very weak sense of providing authentification of the network to the user. So all GSM networks are relatively easy to "spoof".
