I already registered under the DO NOT CALL LIST.  Already selected Blocked unknown/private number.  But I'm still regularly getting calls from phone number that looks like come from another Fido callers (that they same same prefix).

I know that we can report spam text messages but doesn't seem we can have a click to report spam calls.

Hey @WenUser Smiley

 

I'm sorry to learn that you're being bothered by those spam calls, as I do understand they can become quite annoying! 

 

You can find some tips to protect yourself from this type of call here.

Hope this helps!

Those callers are not from Canada and they don't care about the do not call list.

The spam callers use a phone number generator and they call any number the computer generates, plays a stupid message, and then hope you press a button.  When you press a button, they will connect you to someone from a call center and their plan to scam you begins.

 

The best thing you can do is hang up, wipe the number off your call list, and move on.  There is nothing more you can do.
