Question

I know its a scam, so

how do I address the issue. My “own” phone number called me. I didn’t pick up of course because I knew it had to be a scam. I have a program called “phonetray”. Costs me $10 a year. Its very effective, it blocks the calls that I tell it to block. But I can’t block my “own” home phone number, or can I. I'm going to assume that I'm not posting in the 'wrong' forum, but here goes anyway.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

I've had this happen.

And it's the one thing that appears to be broken in apps and my current carrier's blocker.

Please feedback to the Phonetray company they need to fix this.

It's a known issue.

My current phone company was dunderheaded about this. They coded the block list to block adding your own number. Say "Doh..."
