Scammers - Can I block VOIP calls?

The scammers have got my home phone number and they are calling on VOIP. Can I block them?

The pub is two minutes from my home, although my home is two hours from the pub,

Re: Scammers - Can I block VOIP calls?

There's no blocking system I'm aware of of which 'knows' an icoming call is via VOIP.

Plusnet Call Protect can block all international calls, if your scammers are from abroad. Individual number blocking is avalable too, but usually ineffective against scammers as they usually constantly change the spoofed number.

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer.
