Years ago, a bank got an 800 number and the last seven digits were just like mine. I kept getting calls from their customers, so I asked them if they would change their number. They refused. So I said, “OK, when your customers call I’m going to tell them their loans are paid in full”. It was changed immediately.
Wrong numbers can be fun. You can pretend that you are the person they’re trying to call until they catch on. In the meantime, you might hear some juicy gossip. Even though you don’t know the person, you might get some secrets of them.
You may not even have time to rent a truck. So you should use Uber driving service and go half way across the country. It will probably cost about twenty grand, but better than losing your life. If it’s a cell number that he called, get rid of it and buy a burner. With cash.
