I have had 5 verified calls since I launched my campaign and non of them wanted to talk to me. One of them was for 0 seconds and the other 4 told me it was a wrong number when I answered the phone. What can I do to stop this?

I understand how this can be frustrating for you. Is this a call only campaign? 

The most likely reason this is happening is that the call forwarding number(s) have a history to them. They might still be published elsewhere on the web, or even on lists used by telemarketers.  

For the time being, you may want to consider disabling the call forwarding number and just using your own. Then try enabling again in a few days to see if the wrong number calls stop.
