Telephone...land Line

We just recieved a call on our  landline from our own land line number....I've heard of Cell phones being cloned but not land lines....what do we need to do.

Since Comcast won't let you block your own number, there's nothing you can do without resorting to 3rd party hardware. Scammers don't need to "clone" the phone, they can just fake the caller ID info, and using the number they're calling seems to be a popular trick. For more information see any of the many article links at https://www.google.com/search?q=caller+id+my+own+number, for example https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/getting-calls-your-own-number.
