Say Goodbye to Crank Callers

Are you getting mysterious calls and wondering who’s on the other end? Are you tired of being bombarded by pesky telemarketers? Are you getting prank calls or, worse, scam calls? Perhaps it’s time to take action.


In the Philippines, tracing the identity of mobile phone prank callers can be challenging, but there are a few steps you can take to address the issue:

  1. Contact your mobile service provider: Report the prank calls to your mobile service provider. They may have systems in place to assist with identifying the caller or can provide guidance on how to handle the situation.

  2. File a police report: If the prank calls persist and become threatening or harassing, consider filing a police report. Provide them with all the details and any evidence you may have, such as call records or voice recordings.

  3. National Telecommunications Commission (NTC): Reach out to the NTC, the regulatory agency responsible for telecommunications in the Philippines. They may be able to provide guidance on handling the situation and may investigate if necessary.

  4. Use technology to your advantage. There are websites and apps that can identify, trace and block callers.
