South African Scam numbers that you need to block or add to your phones reject list

South African Scam or telemarketing numbers that you can to block or add to your phones reject list

I recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and found this nifty little feature called Call Rejection. I used to have a Samsung S2 which didn’t have this feature.

If you add these scam and telesales numbers to your Call Reject list, it will automatically reject or hang up their call. It’s like an email spam filter for your phone.

Ok so these are the numbers that I currently have on my caller reject list. This list will be updated daily. Let’s make their life hell!

+25 882 896 5191

+26 096 691 8102

021 557 4083

011 354 7000
This number keeps phoning me and when I answer it’s a computer generated voice saying “Please hold”. And when I hold it just goes dead. So add that to your reject list.

087 350 1518
This number belongs to www.plp.co.za¬†–¬†Private Label Promotion (Pty) Ltd. It’s a safe number to answer but it’s still telemarketing with extra offers of products that you currently have.

012 688 6000
I think this is Outsurance cold calling. I’ve received a shit load of missed calls. When I try to phone back, it doesn’t even ring.

087 742 2776
This is Cell C trying to sell products. Add to reject list.

011 376 4000
Credit Card Fraud Scammers

+27 21 927 8000
When this number is answered, there’s no answer

+27 21 937 6265
When this number is answered, there’s no answer

0632628317

    LOL…isnt that call rejection feature on any android?
    I’m on the S2…upgrading to s4 in 7 days time.
    Basically the call isnt really rejected….it just hangs up before you even notice it.
    On my S2 the screen will light up … thats when i know a call has been rejected…
    it doesnt help really…some call centres will call non stop till they reach you. eventually from private numbers to random numbers .

      Well, I didn’t have it on my S2 but I know it’s on the S3.

      I know they will probably keep on calling you from different numbers as well as private numbers which you can’t add to a reject list, but at least you can stop some of the calls.

      It’s irritating.

    087 350 1518 belongs to Private Label Promotion (Pty) Ltd, a callcentre in Randburg who are providers of Value Added Services on behalf of various corporates that contract their contact centre services. They have an outbound call centre team who are supplied customer databases from these clients and will then contact you in order to offer you various products and services. If you have been contacted by this number you are safe to answer the call.

      How exactly is answering PLP’s number “being safe”? You are exactly the type of outfit that we would like to bomb off the face of the earth for annoying spam!
