Our Bedford landline is forwarded into my cell phone for the duration of our temporary relocation and with so many tradesmen and cable technicians calling me, I can’t use the tab to silence calls from unknowns.
Just in the last ten minutes, four (now five/now six) spoof calls have chimed in from fake 234 numbers, all are junk, leaving voicemail messages that “a $700 charge to my Amazon account has been posted and I need to press one to reverse the charge” or “I’m a customer care rep, thank you”
One call after the other. I have to assume these calls are to my own 234 number and not directly into my cell but honestly, I don’t know how one tells if a call is direct or forwarded. Anyone?
One call came in when I was composing the blog post!
Such a TOTAL pain!!! Another one now. That’s SEVEN spam calls in a half hour.
One of the complications is I’m not AT my physical landline where I can block the number from there. I can (and did) block each number on my iPhone but if the calls are incoming to my landline forwarded, blocking it on my iPhone is useless? Yes?
Another two calls. Another two voice mails. Back to back to back. Insane!
