Incom International call show my number on Call ID

For the past two days I have recieved International calls (+371 51) and Caller ID lists my area code and telephone number.  I have no idea who these people are.  How do I block this?

 

Thanks for the help

Re: Incom International call show my number on Cal

They most likely are spoofing the number that they are calling, so that it ends up showing as your number, not the real number that they are using. Most of these types of calls use VoIP (Voice over IP), to make the calls.

You can report the call and time it came it to Tech support, and they can look into the matter and possibly see if they can block that exchange from calling customers. You can do it at dslreports.com through the Comcast Direct Forum. There is also a Spam forum over there, that sometimes you may find that someone is getting the same type of calls.

 

That Prefix is for Aizkraukle Latvia.  See this regarding calls from that exchange.  http://www.hoax-slayer.com/missed-375-calls.shtml  Also see this article. http://www.welivesecurity.com/2014/02/10/wangiri-telephone-fraud-one-ring-to-scam-them-all/

Broe_23,

 

Thank you for the quick reply and the good information.  I will try your suggestions and hope they work.  I am still receiving the calls.
