Re: junk call?

Well great advice so far, all that I'd add is to never give out any details to a caller who's called u... Unless I'M calling my bank or other info sensitive call then I don't give any deets out at all, ever.!!

Good advice C

Never give any details at all. even if you think the call is genuine, take a number and if necessary call them back after verifying the number via google or the company website. We have to be responsible to a large extent for our own security.

Hi jonsie, yes in todays, scammers scamming everyone environment ppl need to take responsibility for their own security. Never ever give out info unless you're the caller!

Re: junk call?

if its any help my galaxy s3 used to have a black list option for nuisance calls however this feature is not apparent on my xperia z2 so ive installed and android app called truecaller, if i have a call thats not on my contacts list the app does a really realy quick search and will usually detail if its ppi or a scam if it doesnt detect what it is if you answer you can then send that calls details (number and company name) to there database which will warn other users of the app.

 

You can also block these calls so the next time your called truecaller will instanly block them :-).

 

ive used it for months now and have found it a god send.
