Re: Lots of calls recently from unknown, 0203 and 0208 numbers

I’ll add myself to the list of people getting these calls regularly.
I block small variations of the number daily!

It happens to me as well. So you are obviously not alone @bwfcmad21. I just block each and every variation which comes in. Time consuming but the only way Smiley Sad

And to me @bwfcmad21. A pain in the.... but you just have to keep blocking them. So rest assured you are far from alone.

Re: Lots of calls recently from unknown, 0203 and 0208 numbers

Checking marketing preferences in MyO2 will only affect marketing contacts from O2 or its partners. 

This will not stop marketing calls from anyone else.

 

I'd advise people to be really careful when registering their details on any companies website and read the opt in / opt out boxes carefully - sometimes it's "click here if you want to hear from us" and sometimes "click here if you don't want to hear from us". I've even seen examples where it was click to opt out on one option and click to opt in on the other, which would seem like they are trying to intentionally deceive people...

Just block it then they can't call again.
