Long Distance Wrong Numbers Suddenly - Why?

Today, February 11, 2020, I received 4 out of state, long distance phone calls that were all the wrong numbers.  This has happened before, but not constantly.  Will resetting the modem fix this problem or do I need to have a technician visit the house?  (I did just reset the modem.)

Were these calls all  to the same wrong number?   If so, that wrong number may have the problem of incorrect call forwarding to your phone number.  I suggest you find out the wrong number and then call comcast tech support to see of that wrong number is a Comcast voice customer and is something they can correct.
