Dear (CSW) Scam Watch Team,
I got one of those scam mails you talked about in one of your Scam Watch features. But in my haste, I responded to it and now they won’t leave me alone. With constant text messages and phone calls what should I do ?

With constant text messages and phone calls what should I do ?
Remy’s Reply: First off you don’t answer them back what ever you do. Then block their text messages and phone number. If that does not work call your service provider and get them to block the calls and texts from the scammer. Barring that you can ask your local police for advice.
Matt’s Reply: I hate scammers like this. They are very annoying. If they are calling your landline then you need to either block the number for the company or get in touch with your service provider and get them to block it for you. Some newer landlines are equipped with a call block feature, which can help. If they are calling your mobile phone, then you need to block all text messages, all phone calls and their numbers, so that they can’t get in touch with you. If that doesn’t work then you need to content your phone provider and get them to block it for you.
If nothing works, then you need to talk to your local police force and get their help on stopping these people from trying to rip you off. Good luck.
Danny’s Reply: Well it depends what scam you fell for. To me it sounds like the lotto scam and if that is the case they have your home address and what ever phone number you gave them. So if it is a mobile phone they are calling block them. If it is a home phone number call your service provider and get them to block them. Though some newer phones have a call block feature built in.
