Hi Is there anyway for virgin media to stop me getting these I have had around 8 since yesterday always the same thing automated message claiming to be from my service provider over illegal activity on my internet...press 1 for this or 2 for that old scam but is no number when i dial 1471 and its becoming tiresome answering
I have done everything,been ex directory for 4 years,joined TPS 10 years ago.Now I let it go to voicemail and pick up if it is someone I want to talk to.Is this what I am paying for ???
You are in the same boat as everyone else. Customers of ALL providers are getting these calls. It is no use providers blocking the numbers as the scammers simply clone legitimate ones belonging to the likes of you & me, or the innocent company down the road. The loophole is the very 150 year old technology phone system we are still clinging too. All calls will move to digital in 2025, when we will all be plugging our phones into the internet via our hubs, along with all the modern security tech that goes with it.
