    How do you do that when they either: Change their number / call from a different number or Withhold their number???

    Personally, I go for the white-list rather than black-list approach. I block everyone by default (unless I'm actively seeking a contract) and have those people who I don't mind hearing from added to my phone contacts (and they have a different, permanent number to call me on that only those people I want to hear from have).

    The "allow anyone to call and block/don't answer those you don't want to speak to" is far too much like a never ending, time consuming game of whack-a-mole, given how agents alter their own numbers so frequently.

Surely this can be classified as stalking? The agency he works for doesn't seem to be a member of Rec or APSCo.
    Can't even find the agency on company check.
    Anyone knows the objective of this kind of "agencies"? Why are they doing this?
    Don't argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    They are doing it to stop you from getting another opportunity.
    If your company is the best place to work in, for a mere £500 p/d, you can advertise here.
