Re: Chinese language robocalls scammer calls to PN mobile

I have a seriously ill partner and when my phone goes, my heart skips a beat, it is like living on your nerves.   It could not be a worse time for me to still be getting these.

 

someone, somewhere is responsible for these.

 

it should be illegal

Hi @Miriam

 

We're really sorry that you have been receiving these. 

 

It actually is illegal to cold call in this manner. However, when the calls are coming from abroad UK law cannot be enforced upon them. 

 

Kind Regards

Yes thanks, I understand that.    I do believe, however, they should not have the access to uk numbers

Haven't given negative feedback to a dubious Chinese Ebay seller before the calls started did you?

They get to see your Ebay registered phone number when you buy.

 

Just a thought as thats when my calls started.

Re: Chinese language robocalls scammer calls to PN mobile

Recently changed my PN mobile number by changing sim as constantly annoyed with calls and voicemails from what sounds like 'Chinese' caller and thought it cheaper than paying £25 for a new number. Couldn't believe it when I answered a call this morning on my new number to another of what I think is a recorded message. Annoyingly these calls are all  from different numbers, some showing as UK but many of them cannot be blocked as they come up as invalid! Have registered with TPS (mobile) but don't actually think this will be of much use.  Is there anything Plus Net can do to stop these unwanted calls and voicemails?? Also what do these callers gain from these calls when you can't understand the language??  Never ever had this problem with a Tesco or BT sim!

Re: Chinese language robocalls scammer calls to PN mobile

It is interesting that mine ALSO started after I transferred the number out of Plusnet - but it seems highly unlikely that could be the cause and prior to the latest batch of calls - after perhaps annoying a Chinese ebay seller, , it had been quite a number of years since I had any.

Also interesting that neither my ASDA or ID numbers get them at all,despite being 'recent' numbers from the providers. ASDA a couple of years, ID about 6-9 months.

Neither of those have been on my ebay account.

 

Also consider why you changed your number .. and someone else will get that number - just as you got theirs.

 

 

 

BUT - my long held number stopped getting them when I left it on immediate auto transfer to voicemail with a carefully selected voicemail 'message' for a solid week after notifying my contacts folk to use one of the other numbers

 

Loathe to declare what that actual 'message' was despite it not being obscene,

but perhaps try:

'our Lords blessings upon you, This is dial a prayer which is a premium rate number. After the tone, please press one on your keypad to begin your blessings. All profits go to charitable causes'

.. you could even just try that for a while with numbers which aren't in your address book straight to it ..

 

 

 

Just a note:

Only consider this if you have been getting repeated calls over a period - you don't want to get tagged by valid number harvesting calls
