"Would it not be easy to find out who he sold it to by asking the people that received the calls who they received them from?"

You assume the recipient of the call stayed on the line long enough to hear who it was and didn't just yell eff off down the phone at them. And if they did, they wouldn't have remembered the specific combination of the words "accident" "claimline" "lawyers" "national" "EZ" "4u" that made up that particularly company name.
