Does anyone recognise this pest from Craigellachie?

    Has anyone else received calls from these similar numbers, clearly a spammer though of course the CLI may be spoofed?

    01340074333, 01340074257, 01340074143, 01340075390

    all showing as Craigellachie, Scotland..

    The drill down via trueCall into 'who called me?' does not show any reports.

    Yes, I've got a few of these in my call logs over the last few months too. I only allow whitelist numbers through.

    Thanks for the reply. I weblink/synchronise my TC every week and I have spotted one further number this week to add to that list:

    01340074006

    I get calls from this scammer about every 2 or 3 weeks. Such calls are currently dealt with by 'shield and whisper' (and therefore blocked as they ring off) and then I subsequently Zap the individual numbers. I am now trying a wildcard Zap on 01340* but I am not quite sure if that will work, although the wildcard Zap itself was updated OK. We shall see.

    I see no reason it wouldn't work - that's what wild cards are for. I wildcard to whitelist the STD areas of places I gave a connection with, plus whitelisted specific numbers. Everything else goes straight to messaging.

    Zap with wild-card worked perfectly OK though I don't remember reading about that variation in my TC manual. And another call received from those clowns this week, here is an extract from my 'calls' log:
