Suspect someone is giving our my number to their creditors.

I've had the same phone number for 3 years and have gotten creditors asking for the same incorrect person for these 3 years. When old creditors stop calling, new ones start up.
I know how to get the creditors to stop. I document their information and file a cease and desist letter if they keep calling. Then I take it up with the state attorney if they do not.
My question is this. Is there anything that can be done about this person who, I suspect, continues to give her creditors my phone number? Are they doing anything illegal by continuing to give out an incorrect number? I know their phone number and address. Thanks!
