The risk with your IMEI is that anybody who clones your IMEI, is essentially you. Imagine a terrorist with your IMEI getting noticed by the NSA at the same time as you are using the same IMEI. Probably won't end happily.

He will use yours because he knows it's valid and that way he looks like you. While they are investigating you (waterboarding, torture etc) he will be resetting his phone to the next IMEI that he has found, and still doing what he does.You, however will be living the life from hell.
