Lately, I am getting calls from weird numbers like 011248999968. It usually drops after a couple of seconds and I never had a chance to pick up.
Does anyone know anything about this? Can these calls be blocked?

Go into your phones dialer and then in the menu there (3 dots right top), then go to settings there and there is on alot of Android phones with option there to select to block calls from a certain number. I know Samsung phones and Pixel phones and LG Phones have this feature and others probably do as well.

NP, I was getting the exact same thing for about a month and then they finally stopped and haven't recived them since. I didn't bother blocking them but if you blocked them they'll end immediately.

Dmitry you can also flag the number on the website of Hiya. That way the database is always up to date.

I'm getting these calls too. I'm on an iPhone 6 -- any idea if there's a way to block all of these calls (and ones like it -- I get this one from Seychelles, but others from Switzerland, Burundi, Jamaica... they all have different numbers but I'm getting these calls daily)?

On iPhone, goto the Phone App > Recents > choose the caller number and tap on the information button (lowercase I with circle). At the bottom of the screen which appears, scroll to the bottom and choose 'Block Caller'. You would need to do this for each unique number.

I received calls 9 times today from numbers starting from 0112489999xx

Does anyone know the origin?

It would ring twice and disconnect.

Wired how it's only koodo customers?

Hi Neal,
There are reports of similar situations in the forum. Definitely it is a scam.
The simplest thing you could do is to block them all.

For Android users, Mr. Number from the Google Playstore seems to be a popular blocker. Block by country, area code, etc.
