What makes me really angry is that BT refuse to allow blocking of calls from International numbers - none of the legitimate landline calls that I get will come from overseas, I get really mad when they spoof UK STD numbers in caller ID - and I can see that they are spoofs from caller ID or from the call record on my elderly fathers phone from the number format.
BT claim they are forbidden by international agreements to block calls with spoofed numbers - BT should route internationally routed calls through a validation checker and reject calls with spoofed numbers as a breach of T&C. If I can see a spoofed number from my caller display BT's systems should be able to!
The rights of the customer to be protected from such fraud - and the rights we have under the Privacy in communications directives must override the profit margins of overseas companies that facilitate overseas scammers who seek to circumvent OUR laws and seek to bypass the protections we should enjoy.
Like the quality of landlines... BTs customer protection is woefully lacking.
