I'm sick to death of the number of silent calls we're getting on our home phone. Nearly always from a random mobile number, sometimes an 00333 (India?) number, one from France last week. We're getting at least 2 a day and I've blocked so many numbers recently that my phone has run out of space. What's the point of being ex-directory and signing up to TPS? If I Google the numbers, they nearly always shows up as previously searched and are always cold callers/recorded messages re green energy or replacement windows. Plusnet, you really need to do something about this. How have they got my number?
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: Phone calls from scammers/phishers/spammers - it has to stop
They don’t have your number the calls are made using a random dialler and the number you have just happens to match that of the one dialled. As for the Ex-Directory and TSP the companies that makes these calls don’t care about it, never have and never will.
So one solution might be what @BrightonRock suggest or you own physical call blocking device on your phone line.
If you buy a phone fitted with BT call guardian such as the 6600 or 8600 and all your problems will go away. I’ve had the earlier 8500 model for at least 4 years with not one unwanted call.
