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

Francois

Hi. I'm currently 33 years old and I'm a full time web developer. I love my wife and... my two cats! The main goal of this blog is to help other South Africans with product reviews, how to articles and updated science and tech news. There are many things that's not very clearly explained like how to do your tax or how to renew your car license for example. So hopefully this blog can be useful to others.

    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!

  14. Johan says:

    I wish somebody would start a website where one can report scammer cellphone numbers and others can do lookups. This is especially useful when dealing with buyers on online classifieds sites that try and scam people

    • Hi Johan,

      It looks like someone did make a website. I’m not sure how up to date it is?

      https://scambuster.co.za/

      • Johan says:

        Yes my google search brought me to them before landing on your page but they are more for general widespread scams.
        I would like to see a section on their website for reporting online ads scammers and in return offer a number lookup. Their current categories and search feature seems not enough.

        Thanks for the suggestion though.

        • You should install TrueCaller on your phone. The app shows you if the incoming number is a spam caller and then you can report it there and block it.

          On their website you can also do a lookup of any phone number: https://www.truecaller.com/

        • I just searched for both numbers you mentioned and they don’t look like they’ve been reported as spam yet. So maybe install the app and report them.

          • Johan says:

            Yeah I usually do a lookup on truecaller and also see if the person is maybe on whatsapp. But these guys change prepaid fake rica’d sims whenever it suits them. But if their number shows up on google they might be forced to do it quicker and might eventually it might make a difference. This guy addressed himself on the sms send to me as the same name coming up on the search in truecaller 😉
            They are getting more sneaky….

          • Johan says:

            Not 100% sure what you mean by ‘report’. I usually go to the shield icon in truecaller which brings up the ‘manage blocking’ screen. Then I click on the ‘+’ and then select ‘block a number’. I understand this will block it on my phone, but will it even make a difference if e.g. 3 people do this, meaning that will the number appear on their search as ‘spam’ after like 3 people block them?
