SPAM callers frequently fake caller IDs. They most often pick a random number from the same CO they are calling. So, if your number is 456-4321, you might get random SPAM calls from numbers like 456-6743 to make it look like someone local is trying to reach you, so you'll answer the phone. It's gotten so bad that I just ignore calls from numbers that are not in my address book. Most people I know do the same. A few years ago I'd return missed calls based on caller ID. I don't do that any more.
Just tell the people who are calling you that they've fallen prey to a trick that junk callers use.
Hey, feliciaol! I'm sorry to read that you're experiencing this. I'm inclined to agree with drnewcomb2 -- it does sound like someone might be spoofing your number.
There's some information here for agencies you can contact to report issues like this: Caller ID spoofing, text message spam, and phishing -- it's definitely worth looking into!
