Hello,

 

That is a Google Forwarding number. By default when you create a click to call extension Google will uses a forwarding number different from the one you put in. This will allow reporting on phone calls (e.g. any phone calls lasting over 60 seconds can be counted as a conversion). You can change this by editing the number in the ad extension by telling Google not to use a forwarding number but you will only get stats if some clicks on your number from a mobile phone.
