Increase in spam phone calls?

On Friday I got 22 phone calls from spammers on my landline. Ten or so on Saturday, similar Sunday. Twelve so far today.

No big problem as my phone system blocks them, but just wondered if it is just me. Anyone else getting more than usual?

Actually getting less here at the moment. I think the last one was some kind of fake customer survey in which I acted like a simpleton from Jeremy Kyle in order to waste their time and keep them on the phone as long as possible. :)

We never got that many to begin with. BT launched a free service, BT Call Protect not long back. I've switched that on and haven't had any since. I always got more on my mobile tbh

There must be a new list sent to the scammers with my name near the top. Dunno where they picked up my number from.??

Another 15 today, though a lot are from two or three callers, 02080028718, 01513758825 and 02080088821 among them. Bastards.

Does your cavity need filling Diabs ? :hyenas:

Check the 'who calls me' sites for the numbers you have and create some really offensive posts on them over the next few days.

I don't get many but my partner gets loads. Depends what mood i'm in, sometimes I wind them up other times just tell them to fuck right off.
