Nomorobo call blocking not working.

Post by Morac » Tue Nov 14, 2017 4:13 pm

The past few hours I’ve received 4 robocall including from 893-281-3732 which is on Nomorobo’s scammer list.

https://www.nomorobo.com/lookup/803-281-3732

I have nomorobo blocking enabled.

Only speculation, but Ooma only imports the NMR database once a week ("early' Monday), rather than accessing it directly, so if a number were added today, it wouldn't effectively be blocked by that filter 'til next Monday. Make sense?

I work around this by temporarily adding a new scam number to my personal block list after reporting it to NMR. Purge the list when convenient.

If they update once a week, that’s not particularly useful.

Just got another call just now from https://www.nomorobo.com/lookup/805-678-1174

Depends on how you use it... I've had good results detailed here:

Why doesn't ooma simply update their Nomorobo list more often ?!?

Ditto. Tons of calls from numbers on the Nomorobo block list.

This is becoming an outrageously ridiculous problem. I must get 10 SPAM calls a day...

Are you reporting unblocked calls to NoMoRobo?

How difficult could it possibly be to update the Nomorobo list daily ?!?

These numbers are already blacklisted by Nomorobo.

When I try to do this and tell them what service I am using, the response is I already have Nomorobo working,

For NMR sign-up? Just specify another service & correct it once the acc't is established... a known 'quirk'.
