I love truecaller. Gives me heaps of details about who people are so I can choose to answer or not. Usually not when it says real estate on the popup.

 

Probably best app I have installed ever to try to counter the fact that telcos seem to not give a crap who uses their service to annoy other people and the fake call sender details that they use.

We have a landline, but we never answer it. We just check the voicemail every few days.

I don't get spam calls on my mobile, but I do have called ID.

Swipe. It's gone.

Hey all,

 

 

 

I have been receiving calls 3-4 times a day from 09 446 6512, 09 441 2654, 09 441 2653, 09 441 2652. All I have answered to hear dear air. Line cut after 10 seconds every time. Starting to frustrate me as I do frequently receive Auckland Landline calls. One google search suggested ASB was trying to call but I don't have any reason as to why they would. 

 

 

 

Cheers

Whenever I get a call from a number not known from the phone's contact list I'll listen for a second or so for any background noise such as you get with those scammy call centers or for above, dead silence.  The dead silent ones get you a response if you put on even a half-pie old ladies voice.
