Drivers. Telemarketer upon accepting a ride request from passenger. Has this happened to you?

I have been seeing people ask questions around getting telemarketer spam calls while driving for Uber. Apparently, they call you during the trip, say whenever you are on route to pick up your pax or during the ride itself. Drivers often pick up because, well, you expect the funky number on your caller id is your passenger looking for you. 

The most eery thing is that it only happens during rides, so it must not be about these people's phone numbers being on some list.

I even heard this from a few of my fellow drivers that I know personally.  It hasn't happened to me yet.

Just a coincidence? Has it happened to anyone else? Is Uber selling our phone numbers or are they hacked?
