Telecoms Regulator Reportedly Following UK Steps To Tackle Scourge Of Scam Calls
The telecoms regulator is reportedly following UK steps in an attempt to tackle the scourge of scam callers.
People across the country have complained about a flood of phone calls from fake numbers, with some making bogus claims that the receiver has broken the law.
UK regulator OFCOM is setting up a system with phone service providers there to block numbers made from abroad, but showing a British number in the caller ID.
A Comreg statement to the Independent says it’s working closely with other groups to minimise the impact of so-called ‘nuisance communications.’
