Caller Display shows INTERNATIONAL followed by a UK number

Go to solution

I keep getting calls where the caller display shows INTERNATIONAL followed by a UK number (today's was a Cardiff number, for example).  How do I interpret this display?  I don't presently answer the calls as I suspect there's something dodgy about them (e.g. a spoofed number), and nobody ever leaves a message when I leave the phone ringing.  So is it an international nuisance call with a faked UK number, or a legit UK call with its number caught in some kind of glitch?

Its a scammer using a spoofed number, ignore.

I work on the principle I only answer calls from numbers I recognise. If its a genuine caller they will leave a sensible message.

The call number will be a fake.  These come occasionally. They come in batches- sometimes several per day, then nothing for a week.

BT Call Protect can detect or send some of these calls to junk,  from a database of known junk callers, which if they leave a message, can be accessed from dialing  1572.
