Nope. It's not a number on your block list calling who is being diverted to your voicemail but not leaving a message?

My advice comes from being a UK Samsung iPhone user.

  • iPhone 14 Pro 256GB Deep Purple
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

If its not on your recognised list of numbers. Definitely don't tap on the link.
Best thing is to find out if that number is the network voicemail notification.
If not then just block the number.
I've been getting loads of Spam and potential fraud phone calls.
But just blocked the numbers and it looks like they have run out of different phone numbers to call me on

@Hel393: Are you able to block the sender via the Messages app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Block numbers and spam > Block numbers? If not, I recommend reaching out to your network provider to see if anything can be done from their side. If you have recently downloaded any third party apps, try uninstalling them them as a precaution, just in case the messages are stemming from one of them. It's unlikely, but worth exploring as an option.

This is now happening on WhatsApp where you get strangers messaging you on WhatsApp to help them with their "business ventures". Normally involves having a pretty face on the profile pic.

Be careful who you communicate with people lol.
