    Have had 4 phone calls from ‘TalkTalk’ (not) today telling me (in an American accent) that my internet service will be disconnected today and I should press 1 to get further details. Although I am able to block certain callers, each of these calls came from a different number so blocking is not an option. Time something was done to stop these pests.

    I use the phone system that Dave pointed me to – an earlier version of the BT8600. It is basically the mobile  Truecaller for landlines. I block everyone who is not on my white-list, they can then state their name/business and I can then allow or blacklist if I want. It filters out foreign scammers as they do not want to spend the time waiting for my approval.

    Brilliant piece of kit – well worth the money.

    [edit] I have forgotten all the possible setup options. Iirc I have auto-dropped all foreign callers except those on my white list. I guess those using an internet chat via a uk number could get in but they do not bother. Even the UK PPI irritants do not bother!
