Unfortunately time is the only solution. The spammers will move on the use another number after a couple of weeks usually.

 

You could change the voice greeting on your messagebank explaining that your number has been spoofed and that it is not you calling them. Most people will just accept that and move on.

 

You can report the problem, but there isn't anything that can be done. The calls can't be traced as the source of the calls is unknown and it would require people who have been called to report the problem to try and track it down.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Not much I can suggest for you to do, it is a very hard thing to stop..  the key is in finding out who is using your number and that is no small task, unless one of those calling you back in error can pass on some sort of name or ID..  

 

Feel sorry for you, but it is probably going to be too much of a stretch for Telstra to do anything at its present level of support. It might need to be a number change eventually, which could be painful for you.. but at least you can control who gets your new #.
