Any ideas how to block scam calls that keep ringing on different numbers

Keep getting scam calls but from different numbers so blocking isn’t helping

Re: Any ideas how to block scam calls that keep ringing on different numbers

You can't there is no system in place to detect them and is one reason they change numbers so often.

Had one on the landline today saying they were Virgin. Thankfully, I know the numbers Virgin use. 

Get about 4 a week to the mobile either text or call. Spam detector gets some, but these people are one step ahead

Unfortunately they dial banks of numbers. There is no guarantee even changing your mobile number will get rid of them

If you only have a handful of people that phone you you can block everyone not on your caller list.

Hi @Kazwilk

 

Thank you so much for your post and I am so sorry to hear you are having these scam callers! Unfortunately @enlli is correct and there is not a lot that can be done in regards to these calls. You can read up on phishing scams and how to deal with them here

 

Thank you very much again and I am so sorry for this experience,
