2020-09-30 Caller ID spoofing

So I've been notified by some kind stranger that they received a phone call from my Australian mobile number 0419 432 517, claiming to be from the Australian Tax Office (ATO). Having received several of these calls myself, I was quite aware of the running scams.

But now they've decided to use my mobile phone number for their Caller ID spoofing. Great. Looks like this is a growing problem, and there's pretty much nothing I can do about it.
