More like others are trying to scam. There's a good chance the "random caller id" that scammers are spoofing just happens to be yours.
I've noticed a lot of scam/spam calls coming to me with the same area code & prefix (e.g. 404-555) as my cell phone. I think it's because in the olden days people in your general vicinity had the same prefix with land lines (like one city in Massachusetts has a prefix of 527 - back in the day, you knew it was someone local on a land line). It could also be the idea that people are trying to spoof the idea of office numbers (offices block out a portion of a prefix, or if large enough, the entire prefix -- but, at least our office phones are smart enough to only show a coworker's name if the call originated from within).
