Re: SYSTEM ALLERT-URGENT NOTIFICATION

I have this problem, too, but blocking/reporting the call does nothing.  I still get intermittant calls from this account.  Is there something besides the usual methods to try?

Re: SYSTEM ALLERT-URGENT NOTIFICATION

I have been getting these calls for ½ year with me contacting Skype for a solution.  Contacting Skype is just as annoying as these calls because I get no support.  I believe these calls are internet bases because if I block these calls, they change there change there address and I will get a call on my Freetalk internet phone.  I don't think that skype knows how to prevent these calls.  Ii do notice on my handset that for every call I get the message Urgent-System help on my caller ID. You would think that Skype could filter these calls based on who is making the call.  If you only allow calls from people on your list, nobody else can call you, I'm looking for a job ^ Skype is my only phone and if I geta response from a possible employer, they could not gey through.
