Exclusive: Scam calls from foreign countries pertaining from uk area codes to be blocked under landmark plans


Recommended Posts

Foreign fraudsters will be stopped from making hundreds of millions of scam phone calls under landmark plans to protect the British public.

 

Major phone networks have agreed to automatically block calls made from abroad if they show up as a UK number, the Telegraph has learned.

 

The unprecedented move comes after phone companies were criticised by the National Crime Agency for failing to tackle a huge rise in scam calls and texts over the past year.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I'm kind of disappointed in this, winding up scam callers has been good sport for me.

 

My record was about 20 minutes by the end of which the scammer was apoplectic with rage that he'd been caught out.

I agree its about time but why has it taken for the National Crime Agency to flag this up for then to take action and not Ofcom.

 

Yet again a Government Agency that is meant to deal with this hasn't Ofcom but flagged by another Agency NCA.

 

If the telephone companies have this facility in place already to do this then why hasn't Ofcom been pushing them to stop all these scam calls and giving them massive fines for not doing so.
