Positive note.

One positive effect of the global lockdown is no scam calls from Indian call centres. I have not had any calls telling me I have Microsoft issues; Broadband issues; Amazon renewal issues or did I need to claim for my recent accidents.

It's great as the only calls in French I now get are from the hospital or doctors who I can now listen and understand without worrying I'm putting the phone down on an important call.
Received two this am about my ganglion biopsy being clear and next rendezvous being made for May.

I guess Pat travel to call centres is not deemed important. Like so many other 'benefits' to modern life.!!

I though they all came from India? Have they got the same rules?

They are supposed to in lockdown in India as well Pat but more and more call centres have been relocated back to UK and France.
But whatever they have virtually stopped.

You do not need to be in the directory, these guys buy call lists that have your details. These lists I believe are freely available to scammers at a price.
