What can I do?
A few weeks ago some lady named Sherry accidentally put my cell-phone number down when requesting services online. First it was innocent; I got a few phone calls about quotes for gutter replacement on her home, all from local businesses. Now all of the sudden in the past week I get about 5-10 phone calls a day from spam companies looking for her. They are numbers with all bizarre area codes. I always answer the calls and tell them they have the wrong number and to stop calling me. 9 times out of 10 it is someone who barely speaks English, and they just hang up on me. Now since Monday I'm starting to get spammed with text messages!
Is there anything I can do to make it stop? It is starting to drive me nuts; none of the companies calling will take my number out of their system. I'm on the DNC list and I report their number when I can but of course it doesn’t make a difference. I've had this number for 10 years so changing it really isn't an option. Any advice would be appreciated!
