Ofcom Thousands of phone numbers will be blocked by telephone regulator Ofcom to try to crack down on scam calls that rip off Brits.

Ofcom said 45million people were targeted by scam calls and texts last summer, and one million lost cash as a result.

Many of these numbers imitated, or 'spoofed', legitimate numbers such as banks and government organisations.

 

Now the regulator said numbers will be automatically banned if they originate from abroad and have no caller ID.

Numbers will also be blocked if they don't meet the UK’s 10- or 11-digit format, or seem to be from numbers already on Ofcom’s Do Not Originate list.

 

This is a roster of phone numbers that never make outbound calls, only receive them - such as bank customer service hotlines.

An Ofcom statement said: "Criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and nearly a million of these consumers followed the scammers’ instructions, risking financial loss and emotional distress."
