Hi Steve.
I know, i'm talking on a personal level for the house landline. Obviously businesses shouldn't block international calls. If you have a switchboard in place, the caller would encounter that in any case...
cheers,
Mo.

Hi Mo,

Again, businesses don't do this.

All the best

Hi Clive.
Surely all the person calling you has to do is dial 1470 before calling you?
The phone system does prompt them to not with hold their number. As far as
I'm concerned, if they can't follow the prompt they can't be that desperate
to get in touch...
cheers,
Mo.

Hi Mo,

The trouble with blocking withheld calls is that you risk throwing one
or two babies out with the bathwater. I know of at least two people
who withhold their numbers, whose calls I would be sorry to miss. So
that one is a clear case of 'proceed with caution'.

Best,
Clive

Hi John.
I would block calls from international numbers and also calls from
with held numbers. Your provider should be able to do this. since i've
done this, touch wood we've not had any nusence calls.
cheers,
Mo.

Hello list,

I am not sure if this is off-topic, but I am sure the moderator will
let me know if it is.

I am registered with both the Telephone Preference Service and the
Mobile Preference Service which keeps the majority of nuisance calls
from hitting me. However I do still get a number of international
calls which do get through. That is, as I understand it, because TPS
and MPS only cover calls emanating from within the UK.

Both yesterday and today I have had a call from a withheld and an
international number that claims to be working on behalf of TPS. They
claim to have been notified by my phone supplier that I have been
receiving international calls which turn out to be scams. After a few
moments of discussion with them and, of course, with no information
being given by me they have both abruptly hung up. In my view that
proves they were both scams.

So don't get caught by this new one.

I am aware that I can get things like call blockers and also  units
such as true-call but I do not currently wish to do so. There are a
few people who may call the house who we do want to get through.




Regards, John
