    Had 3 calls from this number in the last 3 days. Always the same script offering call blocking services. When they ask if I get nuisance calls, I reply 'yes, just like you're and they hang up. Have tried to block this number on my phone, but doesn't seem to work.

    Have received calls from this No. on 10.3.17. 16.3.17. & 17.3.17. so far this week They either hang up or ask my name and then hang up on me. As this is a British phone No. why don't BT block it ? or better still come up with an address and pass it on to the authorities to stop these calls.

    I had a call from this number today 16/3/2017 at 14:10, very plausable lady who seemed to know an awful lot of info about me already.

    I almost fell for it to, must have been having a very senior moment, in the end I told her I would check with my provider and hung up.

    Shall be leaving it to the answer phone from now on.

    Just in case, I shall change my card/

    Had a call from these scammers just after 9am about call blocking from an asian lady. Just as they started to ask for my bank details, I asked them to name my phone service supplier and when she said BT I said OK and my bank details were as follows: sort code 11-22-33, card number 1111 2222 3333 4444. She said that those were false details and I said that they were as truthful as the call blocking they had installed. She hung up

    A foreign guy telling me that I had call blocking phone, he gave me my name my address etc.and asked me to check my debit card that it expires 2018. I told him I don't discuss my card details on the phone and hung up. Surely this number can be traced.

    When I see an incoming call from a number I don't know, I pick up - and say nothing. They always hang up quickly - which happened from this number today. Sometimes I get "Microsoft" calling to offer to remove problems from my computer ... if I will go to my computer and type in a couple of things they tell me. The solution (apart from hanging up) is to ask them for your computer's IP Number. That number is your computer's unique ID ... and they won't know that. This gets rid of them.
