Scam Prevention

Call Blockers

Free call blockers available for Highland victims of scam and nuisance phone calls

Highland Council Trading Standards is engaging in a national project funded by Scottish Government to supply call blockers to residents who believe they are being targeted by scam and nuisance phone calls.

The devices being supplied are the trueCall Secure call blockers - a small piece of equipment that plugs into a landline phone socket and blocks unwanted calls automatically.  Instead of trying to work out what's genuine and what's not, it lets friends and family straight through to talk to you but blocks everyone else.

Visit the TrueCall website for more information on the call blocker device
