Is there a way to unassociate old phone number owners with yours?

I have people and telemarketers call me looking for a woman named Susan. I am not her. Is there a way online or through my carrier (Verizon) to get this Susan woman totally unassociated with my phone number? When I search my own number on Google, all I se

Answers:

there is a national number that you can have your phone number eliminated from those people, it is called the 'no call' line, look it up and register your number

not unless you want to change YOUR number.

No is the short answer. There's no practical way of updating or deleting all the various pieces of information that has her name and now what is your phone number linked together.

All you can do when they call is say you now have this phone number and you don't know her. If they persist on getting you to tell her where she is, hang up.

I. Had the same problem with my work phone number.

Do Not Call registry...that's about it.

Answer and tell them its a new person with the number. Most places will correct their records, some wont.

Tell me about it. If I ever meet Amber I'll tell her to pay her stupid bills, it's been 12 years and I'm still getting phone calls! I let some guy have it with an ear shattering blast, that seems to have done the trick. (Yelled at him; not an actual blast.)

No. I could give anyone's number to telemarketers and tell them to call me. There is no way to stop that. The do not call list is the closest you can get, but it won't stop random people from giving out the wrong number at a bar.

My husband has the same problem - he got a prepaid number and keeps getting calls for Cathy. Who apparently is pregnant, and who never met a scammer she didn't fall for. AT&T was no help. What he's done is a combination of things.

1. He set up voice mail with his first name. This way anyone who is a real human being who calls for her gets his voice mail message and knows the number is no longer hers.

2. He rejects all calls from unknown numbers and blocks them.

3. He added his new number to the federal Do Not Call List. He also looks up the numbers in question on Google. If they show up as known telemarketers or anything like that, he files a complaint with the FCC. You can sign up at https://www.donotcall.gov/ and the link on the bottom explains how to file complaints.

This hasn't stopped the calls from coming, but it's cut the call volume in half.

Good luck!
