Re: Scams

The scam calls are automated, working their way through blocks of telephone numbers until they get a response, and the caller IDs are spoofed. This means that trying to block the numbers one at a time is a futile effort.

Unfortunately you will need to invest in a call blocking and screening device to prevent the unwanted calls ringing through to the phone.
