BT Call Protect

I have BT Call Protect. I have protected myself from unwanted phone calls by not receiving "Withheld", "International" and "Unrecognised" numbers.

On three occasions over the last couple of days I have received these phone calls from 01224 17646, 01536 85744 and 01328 93135. These are scam numbers purporting to be from BT needing access to my account because of a supposed security problem.

These numbers are not legitimate telephone numbers. They are "Unrecognised" numbers.

Why is Call Protect allowing these numbers through?

Re: BT Call Protect

As you say, they are numbers, albeit spoofed, so are not "rejected" by Call Protect.

One of scammers ways round Call Protect.
