Dodgy Caller?

I keep receiving calls from a variety of numbers each with the first 8 digits identical to my number. When I answer the call goes dead. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

Re: Dodgy Caller?

Quite common with phishing calls and they are on the increase.

There is very little at the moment anybody can do, and these scam merchants know it.

I was away from home recently for 10 days and there were 7 such numbers on the house phone missed call list. Both the wife and I also get them on our mobiles

Re: Dodgy Caller?

Hi @Birchez13

 

Many thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear you've been receiving calls like this.

 

As highlighted by enlli this is a common issue at the moment and we would advise blocking such numbers from your phone if they persist. We do offer some further guidance on Nuisance Calls which you may find useful.

 

Thanks,
