I have had a lot of calls from people saying they have had a missed call from my number. Where can I report this? I can only see where to report if I receive a scam call. I am really concerned that my phone number is being used like this. Can anyone advise? Thanks
It may be the case that your phone number is being "spoofed" by scammers so that their scam calls appear to come from a genuine number.

See links about "spoofed" phone numbers

Just had a TV licensing scam email.
Headed: "Remember, if you don`t keep up with your payments, we may be forced to cancel your license or pass your details to a debt collection agency."
It then goes on: "We are sorry to let you know that the TV License could not be automatically renewed. Something's gone wrong with your payments. As we couldn't take the latest payment from your bank account, this amount will also need to be paid when you set up your new Direct Debit".
Then a link to a site to set up a new direct debit. It is a quite believable looking email without the usual poor grammar and spelling mistakes.
The give-away is the sending email address (mue.biglobe.ne.jp).
