The issue in GetHuman2215618's own words
Google assigned me a Google Voice number, which was apparently used prior to my receiving that number from Google, and it has a bad history attached to it. I have found many complaints online, and some even sounding like criminal activity that was perpetrated from that number prior to it being assigned to me. I have used that number, and now am having problems with people thinking that the report is about me when they search the number online, and I'm losing business because of somebody else's horrible past, or at least being accused of it. I would like my number changed, but I don't know how to get ahold of Google, or how to change that number. I also don't think I should be charged to change the number, since it has already cost me thousands of dollars in Lost business, and Google assigned it to me to begin with, with an already bad history attached to the number. How can I resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.
