Phone Numbers

I keep receiving calls from telemarketers or for people that aren't me, why is this?
If you have a real US or Canadian phone number assigned to your account it is likely that this number belonged to multiple people before it was assigned to you.

Callcentric does not re-assign numbers that were assigned to another Callcentric user immediately; instead we hold numbers for at least 1 month before assigning it to another user. Unfortunately many telemarketers use out of date databases to conduct sales or research and you may receive calls from them.

Callcentric suggests that you visit the National Do Not Call registry and register your number.
