I'm getting missed calls from overseas scam numbers and would like to stop them. Any ideas - iOS software or 2Degrees service?

 

I'm using an iPhone and can block individual numbers, but the issue is they seem to be ringing from multiple. This has only become an issue in the last month or so.

I have been getting the same, all international numbers. Not sure I haven't dared call back, if it were someone important they would call back a second time.

Looks like my search skills weren't good enough. I'm not willing to give an unknown app access to my contacts, so looks like I can manually block callers or hope they disappear!

The App needs access to check it does not block any of your contacts
