Phone numbers in ad headlines

A bit confused on the adwords phone numbers. The sample Google Ad shows a 999-999-9999 number and not my phone number.  The rest of the information is correct. Am I missing something?  Thx

Hi Marc,

Is your ad live? Or have you added call extension to your ad?

Here is a link that may help you solve your query.

Hello Marc S,

 

I think you are using a Google forwarding number, this is why near the Ad you do not recognize the phone number. Read more from here : https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2382961?hl=en

 

"Google provides a unique phone number that's displayed with your ads. If a potential customer calls this phone number, AdWords will route the call to your business phone number. "
