If your personal number is being misused you should immediately inform the police regarding the same by lodging an criminal complaint under section 420  of IPC.

Further you should specifically give a warning circular in local and newspaper wherein you should state that people should not rely on any promises unless they received call from a particular number or mail through particular email.
