How can I find out if my mobile number is being used by a business

I have received three random phone calls from men asking for me to 'chat' with them as well as meet up for 'pleasure'. I have a partner, I have never been on date sites or been involved with escort services. I am bit concerned and uncomfortable that I'm getting these phone calls and don't know why? one of the males I called back (with my partner present) and he said he had got my number from the paper. I have looked thro the yellow pages and newspaper. I googled my number but didn't give me answers. can anyone tell me how I can find out?

The best way to find out is by calling or talking to your phone service provider and giving them the same details you have talked about. Ask them to check and confirm who is using your number and how this can be stopped.

Angry ex or make a friend mad? They may have posted your number up on a want ad to get back at you. I would just get your number changed or just suck it up or ride it out

Yes I thought someone may be playing a joke as I have no enemies and only two ex boyfriends both which ended on mutual happy terms. I have posted this information of calls to my Facebook page, a few of my friends have had a laugh but show concern as I'd be the last person to have something like this done to me on purpose. Thanks for your advice :)

Is this a new cell phone number for you?

No I've had the same number since 1997 when I brought my first mobile phone and been with same mobile phone company too. I REALLY don't want to change my mobile number either.
