In 6 months I have:
Blocked 100+ spam numbers.
Changed my number 2x.
I realize the case with recycled numbers, but..
Today I noticed in self serve "usage" history several outgoing calls from my number to a province where I don't know anyone. My phone is locked and only I have access to it.
I had to sign up to this Koodo Community, which is actually getsatisfaction customer engagement platform. When I did, I notice the profile showed "Joined May 11, 2012"
Not a very good site.
Thankfully, I am a Tech Geek, so I will be having some fun with some of these numbers. (most are bots)
In a few days I will post these "fun" steps/how-to. To help other customers with these issues. Koodo won't help, so it's up to us.
For now I advise: Do not respond to any SMS or call. This will trigger an "active" number to the caller. Second, enable your phones "block calls with no ID" feature. Most phones have this in settings. Also, add your number to the Canada's National Do Not Call List. It takes up to 2 months for it to take effect
I'n the meantime, Let's go have some "fun" !!
P.S. I've posted this under "questions" as the others would take up to 2 weeks to be reviewed and posted.
