How can scammers use my personal info?

Before I realised that the person who called me was scamming me, I gave him my name, surname and the last 3 digits of my national insurance number. Also, the person probably knows my phone number. 

Do they have enough of my personal info to do some damage?

    With just that info, maybe not too much damage. However, if they managed to get other information from you or other sources, like birthday, place of birth, parent's names, driver's license, etc., they could build up an identity theft attempt. Kepp a close eye on your bank and credit card accounts. If possible, notify any credit bureaus in your country to put on a "fraud alert". That flags any credit change attempt (opening a new account/credit card).
