I just got the same damn call, but I did,t bother to answer. I think Rogers and other phone companies are selling our numbers. I've been getting the damn call for months now.

Smart thing not to answer these out of town calls.  What happened to the new law? ..... nothing, as usual.  Sad but true.

They do not necessarily get your phone number from anyone they can just run known batches of numbes through a computer program.  Cell phone companies are mostly locked into using a set first 3 numbers in a given area such as 887 or 886 and then the software dials 887-0000 to 887-9999.  Automated dialing process.

Got the call 2 mins ago, didn't pick up, no message left of course.

Just to provide some insight, having worked in "the industry" for years, it would be highly illegal for any company, telecommunication or otherwise, to share your personal information for any reason other than legal proceedings, without your prior consent.  They don't do this.  However, as previously mentioned, there are dialing systems that will simply go through an entire line range, ie: 999-0000, 999-0001, etc ad nauseum.

Also, consider that unless you've had the same phone number for many, many years, or happen to be on a brand new line range, someone else used to have your phone number.  A telemarketing firm will never throw away an active phone number.  This is a common explanation for unsolicited calls.

Got the call on both my cell and my home phone which have the same last four digits (like lots of cell companies offer now).

DEFINITELY not a list being sold, just an auto-dialer.  That makes it worse.

What NEEDS to be available is a system where you can track - similar to IP's via the internet - the route that a phone call takes to get to you.  Track this back to either the original number or it's provider and give their provider hell for allowing them to do this.  Enough complaints will drive most companies to cut their losses.  Especially when they're sales / support is tied up dealing with people complaining about this company / individual instead of selling their services or supporting their clients.
