    T-Mobile "Scam Likely" Caller ID on Tracfone

    I've just started getting some calls with "Scam Likely" as the caller id name on my T-Mo tracfone. It looks like it's T-Mobile's "Scam ID" that's been around since 2017 now working with tracfone? Unfortunately, the "Scam Block" feature (#662#) doesn't seem to work, I get an invalid code error. Cheers

    I get the message with some calls on my postpaid service with T-Mobile. What phone make/model are you using ? Your profile shows 2 different phones. On my Samsung S9 I can simply choose to block a caller in the call options as long as a phone # is displayed.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    I have TF/ATT BYOD.

    On my Pie phones, there is an option to block spam calls. The option is in the phone settings. The phone doesn't ring, but the info shows in the list when I happen to see it later.

    I need to update my profile I'm using an LG v40 ThinQ, it has the option to block callers. From what I gather, the T-Mobile "Scam Block" heads off known spam numbers before they reach my phone.

    I recently noticed it with my Moto E6 on TF-TMO. I can click the block caller option. It doesn't give any error messages, but I don't know if it does anything, either.

    I've been seeing this for the past two weeks. Tmobile is finally passing this info along. All the calls to my phone number don't ring and go to a 10 minute recording of telco disconnect messages. I only answer calls from Google voice.

    I'm also using Google Voice. T-Mobile is catching incoming spam calls from Google Voice and tagging them "Scam Likely" too.
