Why does my number show as scam likely?

This means numbers marked with “Scam Likely” tend to be either numbers that originate a large number of robocalls or numbers that have a record of being reported by recipients as scams. Scam ID successfully blocks many illegal calls.

What does scam likely mean on caller ID?

“Scam Likely” is a message that appears for T-Mobile, Metro (a subsidiary of T-Mobile, formerly called MetroPCS), and Sprint (since the two companies merged) customers on incoming calls. It’s part of T-Mobile’s “Scam Shield” feature, which works to prevent scam calls across the network.

How do I remove my number from scam likely?

If your phone number is showing as scam likely, there is no process to get your caller ID cleaned up. Until carriers or the FCC implement a system, the best solution to this problem is to ensure your business is dialing correctly in order to avoid getting flagged.

Should you answer scam likely calls?

If you answer the phone and the caller – or a recording – asks you to hit a button to stop getting the calls, you should just hang up. Scammers often use this trick to identify potential targets. Do not respond to any questions, especially those that can be answered with “Yes.”

How do I stop my calls from being flagged as spam?

Get your numbers registered at Free Caller Registry – https://www.freecallerregistry.com/fcr/ and https://www.calltransparency.com/ – This helps register/white-list your numbers with the major carriers and reduces the chances of them being flagged.
