    • Hello Dorothy,

      I understand your frustration and we can certainly update your phone number in our database however these records are probably listed in other public records as well. I would contact your phone provider and make sure that your number is updated in their directories and listings. It sometimes takes a while, several months, for public records to be updated. I will have our support team update your phone number in our database. Thanks for reaching out on how to correct incorrect public records.

      Best Regards,

      The Search Quarry Team
