I have been receiving alot of calls from people i do not know everyday. One of the callers told me that my number is posted on an electrical company's website. I googled it and saw it. I do not want to change my number but I'm really bothered by the number of calls (even scams) i've been receiving. What should I do?
Hey @danahrees and welcome to the Community
Your best option from what I can see here would be to change your phone number.
By any chance, did you get the name of that company on Google?
Let me know.
Last year I was getting a lot of calls for some company or someone else, and I too was frustrated and wanted it to stop, no matter who I told they have the wrong number the calls kept coming in.
Like FidoAmandaN suggested, I did some google and yahoo searches and found my number listed on 2 or 3 websites. I reached out to the websites via their contact us link, explained them the situation, and within 2 weeks, my number was removed from their web sites. I also reached out to google, and had my number removed from the google search results for those websites too.
It was a bit of work, but I have had this phone number for over 15 years and all my family members have this number to contact me so changing it is out of the question.
I am happy to say I do not have this problem anymore
