Phone call scam

I am currently being bombarded with calls to my landline saying Virgin Media had asked them to contact me because I have a problem with my internet/broadband.  I know this is a scam and have had 5 phone calls within 2 hours this morning all from different phone numbers.  I asked the last person where they had got my phone number from and said I was going to report them for breach of data protection and that I knew it was a scam and they quickly hung up.  It is just very frustrating with all the calls so I am thinking of disconnecting my phone temporarily.  Anyone else having these?

Re: Phone call scam

The scam calls got so bad then we purchased a new phone with call blocking features. Now callers have to press 1 & state their name if they wish to get through. This discourages scam callers.
