Anonymous
Receives several calls from a 00247 (Ascension Island) number. Vague automated message that your package is due for delivery and gives you a Pin Number. Requests a call back. this ios a total scam to encourage you to ring them. Avoid and block number

Probably better to install an app to block as they got your number somewhere

Another one, this time from Morocco 00212662008262. Shouldn't international toll numbers be barred by default, activated by request?

Hi Donalfm 👋 Thanks for passing this on. I'll pass this on to our Security Team to block from the network. Unfortunately we have no way of blocking numbers from specific counties but we do block every number that is reported to us as a scam number. This ensures that our customers cannot call these numbers back. We recommend that you block any suspicious number as soon as it calls you so that it cannot call you back again. Aoife

I received a missed call this morning from ‭00 247 985001‬ (Ascension Island). Don’t know anyone there. It only rang twice. Presume that’s a ploy to get you to call them and incur huge call charges rather than answer the call.
