Would it be possible at some point in the future to have a whitelist in myaccount which we can add all our trusted numbers too, this list would then be used so that all calls except for ones on our trusted list will be blocked from calling us? 

 

Would also be cool, if we could see a list of all the blocked numbers in myaccount and have the ability to move them to the trusted list.

I keep getting the same pre-recorded scam message about TalkTalk going to disconnect my internet service today unless I press 1 or 2 on my keypad and speak to someone. If you follow the recorded instruction, no doubt you would be charged some extortionate charge per minute on your phone bill.

 

I try to report every such scam number calling on the Community Site, but I think I have only ever been told that one number has been blocked out of probably 40 or 50 numbers reported. I do however block each such number that has called me on my external call blocker, which does prevent them getting a call through again. However, these scammers just keep changing the number they are calling from. They must have purchased a huge volume of these numbers to be able to keep doing this.
