Phone calls with ID showing an existing name with a local #

How is it possible for local telephone #'s to place calls to me showing a person's name from my neighborhood and have it telemarketing or other unwanted conversation? I live in an elderly complex and we need to take such calls seriously, sometimes we do receive such calls for HELP! Is there a way to determine before picking up if the name given as the caller is correct?
