Reported many spam callers in Call Protect. Spam calls getting worse. What does ATT do with the reports?

I get at least 5 calls a day from spam/hangups with similar numbers, but never the same number. I know they are just spoofing their callerID so I don't bother adding them to my block list. However, I do report them as General Spam in the Call Protect app.

What, exactly, does this do? Does AT&T actually do anything with my report? This has been going on for years sporadically, and has gotten much worse in the last few weeks, sometimes 5 calls within an hour. The calls are usually from numbers similar to mine (but not identical). I don't get a lot of phone calls, but my number is important to me and would be challenging to change, so I don't just want to change my number if there is another solution.

Thanks!

Is there any such thing as a 'do not call' list, or a way to report spam callers in Germany?

I've been getting calls from +49 5257923900359 for the last two months.

When I pick up I hear about half of what the person is saying, and then get disconnected.

When I call them back, I hear that I've reached an insurance company and 'please stay on the line.' I am then disconnected or told 'Please try again later.'

The only thing I can think of is that the bank that had my car loan sold them my name and number when I paid off the loan.

I've blocked the number, but I would love to report them.

LOL, maybe that's my final step in integrating into German culture...

I get spam calls within minutes of receiving or making a call. Can apps monitor and report my mobile activity to third parties in real time? Is that why I get these timely calls?

It's uncanny. I almost always receive spam calls within minutes of hanging up from another call. I am highly suspicious of apps scraping data. Is it a current practice for some apps to see you make a call, report it to third parties who give it to whatever automated system there is for a telemarketer to call right away, betting I'm more likely to answer a call after having just made or received one?

I'd appreciate any education I can get on this anecdotal phenomenon.

How to report spam calls?

I am getting 50+ spam calls per day. They start from early morning and continue until late at night.

I am tired of this and want to switch my provider but since I got a phone from them along with my plan, they are imposing a heavy penalty if I leave the contract before it ends.

I have tried calling the provider but they just say "we know this is an issue but there's not much we can do"

How do I report these calls and bring attention to this constant disturbance?

Manipulation Report: The XMR Spam Attack. 424 known accounts, 25 subreddits, and 13,280 spam comments

As you may have noticed, there are a lot of very low quality "pro-monero" comments being posted all over crypto reddit recently. We've done a lot of work to clean up our subreddit network and prevent future spam, but the attack is ongoing and you may see it elsewhere. My personal opinion at this time is that monero is not behind this attack

We do a lot of behind the scenes work to keep things clean and handle manipulation privately so the attackers do not learn our methods and evade them, but in certain cases like this one I believe it is good to show people what to look out for. If you are interested in this topic, SmarterEveryDay did a good series about manipulation on social media. There are videos for YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Reddit was not included but it does face very similar challenges as outlined by the admins here.

###History About a week after the attack began, I wrote up a report on March 15th here with many examples of these spam accounts. I was contacted by mods of some affected subs asking for help, offering to collaborate, or expressing anger and worry that their mod team would be overwhelmed and quit. A few just banned crypto or monero mentions outright, which may very well be the intent of the attack.

###Latest info The spammers have recently started adapting to avoid filters (eg. Xm_o.n.e.r.os) and are spamming more than ever. My bot banned about 45 of these accounts in the past day alone. They are also targeting more subs over time. From what I can tell, only about 7 of these accounts have been suspended (under 2%) even though I reported 113 of them weeks ago. I have reached out to the admins again today with this post

u/earthonion had a clever idea for finding these spammers and released a proof of concept. He also found an interesting slip up that seems to imply it's automated: https://web.archive.org/web/20210404161623if_/https://www.reddit.com/r/SatoshiStreetBets/comments/m8jio7/im_done_with_shitcoins/griyxd9/

Smaller streamers being banned by spam reports with no appeal

Dear Twitch by Yourragegaming who brings up the situation

Twitch Streamer and Youtuber Yourragegaming recently uploaded a video talking about an issue that he and smaller streamers around their community have been having with random bans for β€œhateful slurs and conduct” since September of last year.

Twitch has been issuing bans, most likely for spam reports, without looking into them. This has been leading to small streamers without public outreach getting banned no reason and their appeals are ignored.

KaiCenat gets banned, unbanned, and rebanned within 3 days

xSimey gets randomly banned for 6 months with no appeal reaponse

Dosllee gets banned for β€œhateful slurs or symbols in profile”

I irritated a spam call centre, so they called me back to say "f*** you"

So if you've ever gotten an incoming call from a +65 number, it's 99% a robotic spam call from overseas. A robot voice will tell you something like "Hello, this is DBS Bank, we've tried to call you several times..." and then prompts you to press 3 on your dialer. When you do so, you'll be connected to a real phone operator who says this is DBS bank or something but they can only speak mandarin.

First off, I'm not Chinese, so I can't speak mandarin. Second, I love watching Kitboga, so I take a few cues from him. So i press the record button on my phone, then, I say stuff like "nihao" and "what drink you want" like Chris Tucker in Rush Hour. Sometimes, I just randomly hit numbers on the dial pad because those presses are super loud on the phone. Eventually they hang up out of frustration.

But today, I had ANOTHER spam number call me moments after that initial call just to say "f*** you" multiple times, and proceed to hit random numbers on the dialer until they hang up.

So yes, you can beat spam calls by acting like an idiot or just straight up wasting their time.

Edit: Added some extra bits to the original post. Thank you, my fellow Singaporeans for all the encouraging comments and my first Reddit awards. Spam calls have plagued us far enough and I believe it's time we fight back by wasting their time and reporting these spammy numbers to the police.

Edit 2: Should be "scam call centre" but given the way it operates, it does spam phone numbers with robovoices.

Over 20 spam and spoofed calls

In the past 2 hours I have received over 20 phone calls all originating from the same area code, same three middle digits and a variation of the last four (e.g. 123-456-xxxx) from Arlington, TX.

When I call these numbers back they are all people that are a) experiencing the spam themselves, or b) have no idea what I’m talking about.

I told my carrier Visible about it and they said β€œwe will be reporting this to higher authority” [sic]

I have no way to stop it but I’ve been able to silence the calls using do not disturb as well as the built in block spam caller feature in iOS.

I have no idea what is going on, has anyone else experienced this today?

I sign my student’s parents up for spam calls

I am a teacher. I work in a fairly rough school. Teachers are so powerless these days. If a kid is misbehaving, bullying, cursing, or just being disrespectful, the school is so limited in what they are able to do. The most effective way to stop these behaviors is to call home.

MESSAGE TO PARENTS:

I don’t want to call you. I like to handle everything I can in my class. I only have 45 minutes a day with your child. If I’m calling you then it’s my last resort to stop this behavior.

Anyway, too often I call home and tell the parents what is going on in class and I start getting yelled at by the parents. β€œYou’re the teacher, you have him in class so deal with it” β€œwe curse at each other in this house, it’s just the language we use” and so many more I could go on forever.

I can’t ever speak my mind back to these parents but I feel that I need some sort of revenge to feel better. Luckily I have their address, phone number, and email. I have a list of websites and companies that I can sign up all of their info to have them receive endless emails, calls and junk mail.

I know people say revenge isn’t the answer but man it feels amazing. You should try it some time.
