If the calls persist, going over to his home and asking for his phone # might be the best option. I'll bring some company with me just in case, but from the info I could gather, it seems he's over 70, so hopefully he'll be reasonable.Do you really want to give the message to these agencies that they can get connected to this fellow thru you? What I mean is that they will keep it in their files that you are apparently a friend/relative of this person (they got the correct info thru you didn't they?) and the next time they come looking for money they will find you -- whether you still have the same phone number or not. You will be linked to his file whether that is fair or not.These agencies have resources to find people -- public records, utilities, etc., and you should let them do their job. Your job is to be consistent: "I don't know him. He doesn't live here. He is not related to me. I have had my phone number for 9 years. I do not share my phone number."
