Chinese (mandarin) scam calls

I keep getting those  pre-recorded calls in Mandarin calling my home phone and cell phone. One time, they even called my cell phone twice. If i don't pick up, it will go to my voicemail. I also can't block them because every time it is different.

 

how do i stop these calls?

 

I'm located in the GTA.

Hey @imeem,

 

I know the pain ☹️, these guys aren't even above leaving voicemails and filling up the mailbox 😕. I get at least 4-5 calls on my cellphone alone everyday. I do make it a point to block the number however such calls can be difficult to trace especially when spoofing Apps are involved. 

 

I would just recommend you to be extra diligent about protecting your information like a phone number especially on the Internet.

Re: Chinese (mandarin) scam calls

Most cases it is not the number that is published on the Internet but they use stupid dialing bots to find phone numbers.

 

Either Rogers has to implement a way to block spoofed calls or the entire VOIP needs a revamp on properly authenticating origin callers.
