prepaid sim number recieving calls/text for previous owner

Hey guys, I just activated a sim. It appears the number I chose is receiving debt collector calls and spam text messages, I also can't link the number to my uber or afterpay account because it was already used. Does anyone know if there's a way to by pass this and keep the number or will I just have to buy a new sim and keep my fingers crossed not to run into the same problems?

Hi @skwishay - thanks for reaching out to us. From the sounds of it, this number may have been used some time ago but we can certainly take a closer look for you. Can you please send us your details → here.
