Scam calls

I keep getting scam calls. I answer the phone and get silence on the other end. Every time after I end the call I block the number but then I keep getting at least 2 calls a day. The number is more often than not very close to my current phone number. How can I stop this from happening?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: Scam calls

Telstra do have an Unwelcome Calls section that could provide advice.  The solution might require you changing your phone number.


Be wary about how you provide your phone number, by avoiding surveys etc.
