Sick to death of scam phone calls from Virgin, open reach Amazon etc etc
Now getting 4-5 scam phone calls to my landline EVERY DAY......they are often 01233 or 01229 numbers, my handset can block 100 numbers, but very quickly gets full up & I have to delete and start again....there seems to be no way to stop these calls......even with a 100 blocked calls, they still come through, different numbers all the time.......I rang one number back and it was a homeowner who seemed genuine upset that his number had been used for a scam call....maybe these scammers are now cloning genuine numbers.......is that possible ??? If it goes on I will buy a new cordless phone that has a 1000 number memory and can block certain sequences of numbers....e.g. those starting in 01229 etc.....can’t block unknown numbers as many medical services phone me and I can’t risk them not getting through.....registered with TPS but makes no difference......my suggestion is for Virgin to create a database of known scam numbers from its customers and if a customers signs up for the scheme No numbers from this database will be allowed through.....the database of scam numbers would continue to grow as customers contribute their own scam caller numbers...........Come on Virgin, help your customers 🙏🙏🙏

Rather than trying to block individual numbers (which will simply be a never-ending and impossible task) you need to screen the calls automatically. Refer here from earlier in the week for suggestions.
