What's the deal with telemarketers using "spoofed" caller ID. Does this happen to you?

I get calls daily, and I know now that if I call the number back, it's usually someone who has no idea what the hell I'm talking about. They are right. How do I deal with these spoofed? I have called a few numbers back and politely let them know that their numbers are being used to show up on caller ID's. Most calls result in people thinking I'm nuts, but whatevs. I have googled "how to trace spoofed calls" and have found that basically not much can be done. Anyone have any ideas?
