Scammers using local mobile numbers

What is AT&T doing to prevent scammers from now using our local mobile phone numbers? I am getting phone calls from scammers using local numbers so we will try to answer. I am also getting calls from local people saying I have missed calls from my number and I have never called them. How can they call using our assigned mobile phone numbers? I have seen this new trick they are using on the news. What is AT&T doing to stop this?

Nothing att to any other carrier can do. The are using VoIP lines and spoofing the caller ID.

@sslong Nothing, they aren't actually using those numbers, they're just messing with the caller ID.
