Telephone ID Spoofing

I am having nuisance calls where the sending spoofs their telephone ID. The most recent very regular calls come from 09999999999 and 08888888888. I have the virgin nuisance call package and I have a Call Blocker, however, the virgin system still allows the calls to get through. How can I/we stop these fraudsters?

Re: Telephone ID Spoofing

Hi Johnsonjhg

 

Welcome to the Community, I'm really sorry to learn about the inconvenience you're experiencing with these unwanted calls lately.

 

As a last resort I'd recommend thinking about changing your telephone number, which you can enquire about by giving our team a call on 150 from any Virgin line or 0345 454 1111 from any other.

 

There's also some good information on stopping unwanted calls [here].

 

I hope this helps

Craig

Re: Telephone ID Spoofing

Hi Craig,

Many thanks for the advice. I consider the last resort option of changing my number to be giving in to these Fraudsters.

Having being very actively involved in the building of CATV and European telecommunication networks I find it totally confusing that Service Providers cannot assist in the apprehension of these fraudsters.

 

Cheers,

 

George
