Easy solution....   if the number is not recognised in our phone's address book, we don't answer.  Our answer phone picks up, and it's my voice (in English).   99.9% end in a hang-up...  Works a charm!

On the first call they wanted me to identify myself  e.g. are you Mrs ------? press 1 If not press   5

They were then going to tell me about internet fraud. I checked with Barclays and they did not recognise the number, so I put the phone down each time I realised it was them again.

Up to now no more calls.
