Hi guys,

a friend of mine owns a chinese restaurant/take away and has been plagued with 'kids' ringing and 'pretending' to enquire what's on the menu . .

. 50 calls a night for about 4 weeks,

they shut for 10 days in january and then when they reopened it started again,

although 20 calls a day now .

 

 

. . each time the number is different and when they ring back it doesn't connect . .

 

 

. the dialling codes were mobiles but then landlines too,

however some of the area codes were 100's of miles away!

 

Is there and internet scrambling facility?

i'm guessing these kids are using something off the internet,

maybe voip or something that can scramble or make up the numbers to hide who's ringing?

 

 

BT were no help and of course the only option i've mentioned was the True Call facility but they're resisting because of the cost . . .

 

any help would be appreciated!

 

thanks in advance

  • 2 weeks later...
  • 1 year later...

without naming them on here,

they have had their signage doctored in photoshop to say a rude word and of course with social media these days it's gone round like wildfire . .

 

 

. this has now been going on for over a year,

police do jack and it did die down

but has now resurrected itself and they are getting like 100 calls during service which is 5pm til midnight . . .

 

The numbers they log are false,

i've spoken to the police and they're coming to interview them tomorrow,

they've checked the numbers and confirmed they are incorrect

so they must be masking them via some internet site or something i'm guessing?

 

 

So the question I have to you all is,

what can my friends do to cut through the masking to find the correct numbers and then of course pass on to the police?

 

 

i'm speaking to BT to see what they are able to do as they are a BT customer . .

. and finally the telephone intercepting device that CAG has promoted on here would that expose the correct number if they withhold it or mask it?

 

thanks in advance guys, my friends are really at the end of their tether . . .

previously the police just said it was nuisance calls and of course wouldn't get involved, now things have progressed to racial abuse i'm pushing for them to make it a criminal enquiry . . . not all of the calls are racially abusive but it only takes one . . . these poor people are just simple folk working under intense volume pressures to serve our local community.

The police visit for statements is tomorrow and i'll hopefully get down there to help push it along for action instead of blah, blah, blah . . .

 

just wanting to know if the truecall device would actually reveal any masked telephone numbers? or reveal withheld numbers?

no it doesn't

nothing can

 

it would take the police to gather that info from their telecom supplier

 

however it will and can stop ALL call from withheld numbers, masked numbers and 'fake' numbers

 

on a business side, I found it a god send

 

you can simply configure it to say

this number does not accept calls from withheld numbers

please dial again using a suitable number.

 

in the situation you describe it will be invaluable

they will be using skype call

its so simple to do

even on a mobile

https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA2561/how-do-i-change-my-caller-identification-settings

 

you know the destination phone number [the restaurant ]

 

I would make a complaint to skype about this.

 

 

they can trace it if its through their software.
