Hi, over the past few weeks I have had many many calls from people askingif I am such and such business never the same business twice.. Always english speaking people.. as soon as I say im not that business they hang up.. I have also had 7 or 8 calls with a recorded message that says it is google add words and then a child or young adult comes on and asks me what business they have called.. I am worried that something is not right. I get plenty of legitimate calls every dy from genuine business enquires as well so it is impossible not to answer the phone.. Can any body shed some light on this please

In any campaign you would get some "irrelevant" / spam calls. As long this is negligible - I would ignore.

Well... In every campaign, there  is a small percentage of "weird calls"....I would not  spend the time investigating...
