They call you from 961000240
If we take a look at online lists of spam numbers, such as SpamList.com either Responderono.eswe will observe a common pattern for 961000240: it is about telephone calls from commercials on behalf of Vodafone.
Taking a look at the comments of those who have answered the call, we can see that it is a commercial on behalf of the red operator that offers personalized rates and promotions in case of being a client (in exchange for increases in permanence) or they offer us other types of discounts and offers in case we are from another operator and want to carry out a portability.
Vodafone commercial. They call me every day despite the fact that I have repeated in good and bad ways that I do not want to know anything about them and that they leave me alone.
“Heavy, even if you tell them you’re not interested, they keep talking and if you hang up and block them, they call you again from another similar number.”
“They are from Vodafone. They wanted to give me information about their rates, I tell them that I’m not interested, that I just hired Orange for football and that they don’t have that option, but they keep insisting that they have many entertainment channels to which I tell them that I’m not interested . They keep insisting and in the end I hang up the call.

Robinson list, the solution?
First of all, you should use a call blocker, either our own phone or applications like Hiya, CallBlocker or Pepeescudo, the new free application from Pepephone to find out who is calling you and protect you from unwanted calls. These apps collect information from thousands of users who report spam and display warning messages about spam calls, as well as allowing automatic blocking in some cases.
However, beyond acting against a specific telephone number (you can block other numbers with the same purpose such as 607123000 or 662991273), the best thing you can do to stop telephone spam as much as possible is to sign up for what is known as the Robinson List, an advertising exclusion service provided by the Spanish Association of Digital Economy that, in theory, allows us to register to say goodbye to all phone calls, messages, advertising, spam, harassment. It is not a 100% reliable method, as telemarketers can still bypass this supposed block, but it is better than manually blocking each number separately.
