What is a nuisance call?
This could be any kind of unwelcome phone call you receive in your home, such as market research, debt collection and reverse charge calls. Many of these calls are scams that aim to con people out of money. Instead of you trying to work out what’s genuine and what’s not, a trueCall device will block any unwanted calls automatically.
“My mother no longer gets anxious and agitated. I cannot impress on you the positive impact this has made.“
How does it work?
When a call arrives it checks the caller’s number. It will let trusted callers straight through and will ask unrecognised callers to identify themselves by pressing a key or by entering a code. You can see how this works here, or for dementia households here.
