Though not entirely for the sake of protecting people from scammers, Bulldog, based in the UK, is now requiring their customers to pay a fee just to be able to make any premium calls in the first place. It equates to about $90 just for this “service”, and though many are angry about it, the company is steadfast. Is this what service companies will start pushing towards? “Denial” of service, whether it be to protect yourself, protect the company or pad pockets, with service being unlocked for a fee? ISPs and telecos also can end up losing big when it comes to scammers, so it seems plausible that other companies may follow suit. And none of this, of course, actually fixes the situation. It just makes you pay a fee. Bulldog is a broadband/teleco company based in the UK.
