Phone spammers can hijack a phone number?

I got a spam phone call from a number in my area code. I plugged the number in Google and there is a person's name associated with the number. I can only assume she doesn't use her number in that way so that the number must have been hijacked. Is that possible; how is it done?

as dfilpus noted. Illegal, but they do it anyway.
