bill collector calling my house asking for my brother..

My brother forgotten to pay off his $300.00 Macy's credit card bill... Somehow some bill collector got my number and was looking for him... How did they get my new number? I thought my number was non-published from Comcast..

You will have to call 1-800-comcast and speak with them. You could also try to Private message a CC moderator. There names are in red.
