Someone else has my ooma number

On my Hub/scout system I have my original landline number that was ported over last year, and also associated with this Hub is an ooma assigned second number.

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been getting occasional calls on the ooma assigned number which I assumed were wrong numbers. However, when I asked some of the people what number they were calling they gave my ooma number but they had asked for some person I have never heard of.

Is it somehow possible that this number has been duplicated?

What happens when you call that number from a non-Ooma line like a cell? If it rings your phone then perhaps someone gave out your number by mistake to his friends when trying to inform them of his new number (an email typo).

Happens alot, about once a year I get a flood of unknown callers looking for someone else, I do get some interesting messages and texts on my cell. Then go away after a few weeks.

Worst are freaking 10 year old's calling for their friends. Ugh. Thats edumacation for ya.
