We have BT call blocker on 1572. It works but these scam calls from BT? Microsoft? Loosing your broadband, TV licence standing order needs updating etc. have access to a huge amount of numbers they can use. Some days we get up to 3 or more.
We have stopped answering our phone and let it go to answerphone. Then we ring back those who leave us a message (friends and family). Scammers never leave a message.
The police did help us with a scam text message sent to our landline. We were getting up to 6 over a weekend. We could trace the number and tried to ring it but it always went to answerphone. We never left messages, just in case ! The police checked the number and said it was logged on websites as a nuisance caller. They gave us two websites to log it as a nuisance number too. I think 'Who calls me' was one.
grandtanteJE65 ~You can block calls really easily on mobiles. I have an iphone - Get your calls up. press the blue i at side of the number. At the bottom of the screen is BLOCK THIS CALLER.
