Multiple fake O2 calls.

Within three days I have had seven calls from scammers claiming to be calling from the 'O2 network'. Each time I hang up and block the number and each time they call again from a different number. (Or at least the number that comes up on my phone is different).

The worst spell was on the evening of April 7 when I had five calls from 'different' numbers between 6pm and 7.30pm.

I have recorded all the numbers and times of calls and I am keen to report them to action fraud but the online reporting system doesn't make it easy to report multiple numbers. Anyone got any other ideas?

@EllaJP Scam calls are a plague which doesn't seem to have a solution from OFCOM or any networks at present. The only thing you can do is block the numbers and report them free to 7726.

Thanks. I suspected as much. I've just never had so many fake calls in such a short space of time. I have reported the numbers individually on the Action Fraud website as phishing attempts and reported them all by text as you suggested.
