Starting To Recieve Missed Calls (Possible Scam)

All of the sudden I have started to receive these calls and they call for a second and leave a missed call.

I feel like that this is a scam. Is there anything that I can do besides changing my number?

I have already blocked them. I don’t want to get a surprise change, as I never pick up the call.

Unfortunately there isn't much that you can do save for blocking the number. You'll just have to ride out the scam as they'll eventually move on.

You can also look for reliable and trusted Apps that can hep reduce those unwanted calls by 90% or better.
Nothing is 100% scammers proof but Apps like: "Hiya or Truecaller " can help.

The CRTC is also trying to come up with a universal solution to that issue:
