I started getting “about this call” messages after I got phone calls and I clicked on one, it and now I get phone calls from people on my contact list BUT its not from them. I got one yesterday from bobb and when I answered it it was a “voter something survey” so I hung up. I talked to bobb yesterday pm and he checked his phone and had not dialed me. Got another “about this call” today but didn’t open it. Anybody have this?
Exactly where are these messages ? Are you in a browser or an app or what? Can you take a screenshot and post it in this thread so others can see it and help figure it out?
A support ticket may need to be made to have them look at a screenshot too.
Before opening a support ticket, please do tell us more about what “about this call” messages present themselves on your phone. Could it be something that a newly installed app is doing?
This strongly suggests a new app that purports to block spam, provide caller ID, etc etc. What model phone are you using?
I do not use a browser on my phone except for scanning prices or using moviepass or fandango, I do not have spam blocking apps on my phone.
Also it is a Moto X
If you long press (touch and hold) that notification, instead of tapping it, does a circled “i” appear? If so, what happens if you tap the ?
I think this is the app that is causing this:
The icon looks like a match and the the behavior you describe matches what that app purports to do.
Installed the App on my Device. I get the same alert. Looks like @johnny5 has solved the mystery.
Your right, that is what it is, when I tap on it it shows on a map where the call came from. It is a scam because it wants to charge money for more information. I did not install it BUT just uninstalled. Thanks for that.
BUT why do I get phone calls from my contact list of people BUT the calls aren’t from them? Example, I got a call from bobb, bob knows I hate phones but he called at 8am (never calls at 8am) so I figured an emergency or something! It was actually a live call from a “voter survey scam”. the number called from was a 202 area code, ours is 480
It shows a map with pricing ranges.
It could be spoofing. Sometimes sketchy businesses can use these practices.
I Thank all you guys for your time and help and hopefully this ends it, I hate problems!
