spam calls

All my Privacy settings on both computor & my Android phone show that i can receive voice/video Calls & IM from my contact list ONLY yet today i received 3 sex spam callers, they were not on my contact list, they did not request an Add and i have no idea who they were but they were obviously sex spamers, i cannot have this AT ANY TIME.

 

As soon as i hung up they called again 20 times within 1 minute. this has happned 3 times today already.

 

i could blockthem but that will not solve the issue that all my setting allow for my contacts alone to contact me so i should not be getting this in the 1st place.

 

Can anyone help me?

 

regards

 

Jackie

Re: spam calls

Hi, I have had exactly the same problem. I've also found that these 3 callers are not in my contact list so I am unable to block them. There is no record of them on my laptop only on my android ... how wierd is this and how on earth do we prevent this??

Re: spam calls

Yeah, I can confirm I'm having the exact same problem. And it only shows on Android Skype. Even after I set myself to invisible, some loser kept spam-calling me over and over again. But I got like a dozen tards contacting me in less than half an hour.

Skype on Android is getting to be more of a pain than it's worth. It's already way too easy to accidentally make regular/video calls or answer ones with your contacts, which is way bad enough, but now with strangers? I think I'm done.

Re: spam calls

Check your settings again. My wife had this problem as well and we found that Video Calls was still set to anyone. Make sure everything is set to CONTACTS ONLY...there are three or four places for this setting to be enabled.

Hope it help you out as well.
