Mobile Phone number CLI Spoof
I just received a call from a person returning a call that I apparently made to then less than an hour ago.
Since I have not made any calls from my mobile number to that mobile number I am wondering how my mobile number has been forwarded as the originating number.
Is it possible that someone has hacked my mobile number and is using it for scam calls and if so what action can I take apart from changing my number.

Re: Mobile Phone number CLI Spoof
No. You haven't been hacked. They are just spoofing your Caller ID (which is quite easy to do unfortunately).
The best action to take is to change the greeting on your Voicemail to explain what has happened (most people accept this and move on) and then not answer calls from any unfamiliar number. It should resolve itself within a couple of weeks when the scammers move on to using a different number.
