Re: Chinese language robocalls scammer calls to PN mobile

That would back up my theory that plusnet took over a block of numbers that had found its way onto a list.  If Plusnet had sold the list deliberately all their customers would have been on the list not just the relatively recent.

Well it could be.  The jury is still out with me.

 

it is illegal to do this in the UK but the Chinese don’t have such rules.

"Why would a chinese spam company pay Plusnet for sending calls"

In the UK the calling party pays for the call. All UK Telcos charge to connect calls to their customers. Telcos know what calls they are connecting and where they come from.
