      The thing with recognising the number is that they can be spoofed. A quick google will come up with various sites. Knowing this, I wouldn't trust any caller.

      So a simple question for you all, when you get a call from a firm you deal with, do you just hand over your personal details or do you ask them to verify who they are first?

      It works from a database of known bad numbers, a bit like dnsbl. Its pretty damn quick in getting the info too. Of course you need to have an internet connection at the same time.
