How to prevent it?

Dang Thanh Dat, 27, an employee of Bach Kim restaurant (Tan Binh District, Ho Chi Minh City), used to go crazy because of junk calls from fixed numbers. In the past, I was often disturbed by calls from junk sim, but now, the new obsession is the calls from 11-digit numbers (11-digit fixed numbers), Dat shared. He added: Although blocking a lot of numbers, I still keep receiving calls from other numbers. While I was sleeping, the ringing of the phone from these calls made me frustrated and lost sleep.
This situation is not only happening to Dat but also a common annoyance of many people in Vietnam. The loose management of fixed numbers, together with sophisticated tricks of the network operators and advertising companies, makes it more difficult than ever to completely block spam calls from this number.

To overcome this problem, there is a need for joint efforts from both authorities and users. On the part of authorities, it is necessary to strengthen the management of mobile sim cards, review and check and punish the spreading of fake mobile sim cards. In addition, authorities should apply new innovations such as developing and deploying effective spam call filtering systems, cooperating with network operators to find appropriate solutions and should raise awareness of people about the issue of calls and spam messages.
On the user side, Vietnamese people starve not to provide their personal information to unreputable sources because they do not know what they will do with their personal information. Besides, be careful when listening to ads “honey” and unfounded. And should use applications that block and report spam messages and calls to ensure their safety.
