Block Scammers taliking Indian accent?

I receive numerous annoying call from +1 800 622 ****. Each time they change the last 4 digits. Blocking a number each time didn't workout. They said " calling from revenue Canada. The funniest thing is they called even on 1st of July multiple times. talking in Indian accent. Is it possible to block the central office code (middle three number of a phone number) along with area code regardless the line number (last four digits of the phone number

Hi Pratheep,

Unfortunately there's not much that we can do from our side. To protect yourself from this kind of scams, I would advise you to follow this link: https://crtc.gc.ca/eng/phone/telemarketing/ and to read the information displayed there, as to better understand what this is about and learn how to protect yourself. You'll have chance to register your number on the national Do Not Call List. You can also verify on your phone's menu if you have any option for blocking these numbers. The Canadian telecom industry has also begun to gradually implement universal call blocking to prevent this type of unwanted calls and Fizz is also a part of it. You can find more details on our FAQ: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/universal-call-blocking. As a last resort, you can also change your number from your account.

Have a good one!
