I y think you missed the point here. However scammers seldom listen to what
you say, they just wont you to hear what they say, and are not foolish
enough to ring premium rate numbers. They normally also block their own
number so if the person has it they can bar it oon something like True call.

Just type scam numbers into Google (without spaces, especially not in the
wrong places like yours) to see lists of complaints from other victims.
Our Call Blocker has begun showing that someone tried to call from a
number it describes as INTERNATIONAL, but never stores a number with
it. It is set the only let through calls from its callbook. If they
don't present a number it just rejects their call. Now how does it
know, if no number is presented, that it is an international call?
All other callers have a number listed, even those using a spoofed
phone number. Genuine callers, not in the list, can get through via a
procedure of saying their name and me accepting or rejecting their

Is this on a BT line?
BT had an "issue" about trust of International numbers, and did not
pass them to the subscriber. Other operators, particularly mobile
operators happily presented them.
Looking at my Asterisk call logs which go back to the end of 2013 I
can see 32 instances of the word INTERNATIONAL in the CLID "name"
field (not the number field). About half of these don't have a
presentation number and they all occur in or before Jan 2014.
Then on and after December 204 there is another block of calls with
"INTERNATIONAL" in the name field but this time with a number in the
number field, many of which look wrongly formatted
Interestingly, the last one was in mid March 2015 and there have been
no more INTERNATIONAL since.
I mess around a lot with my server, so I can't guarantee I havn't
influenced the apperence and disaperence of these calls, but I don't
think I have.
