Just had one and, for the first time, stupidly answered it. The number was “Dublin” - something-something-666-0000.
Had a total brain-freeze, as expecting a Bosch call out today or tomorrow to fix dishwasher, and answered it. A recorded message started to blab about my bank account being frozen.
It’s really irritating. My elderly mother had a bad fall in the middle of the night two weeks ago and called me at 5am. But my phone was on silent because of these calls at all hours.
So my mam called my clontarf-based sister and she too had her phone off because of spam calls. Thankfully she then got my other sister in malahide to come down. It was a serious fall and an ambulance was needed.
She’s fine now (as evidenced recently on the tech-support thread ), but there can be repercussions to these bloody spam-calls besides mere irritation.
