Call blocking based on prefix

Anyone knows if we can perform mass call blocking on incoming calls based on prefix +65 on android or iPhones?

Just to share, a blanket block on +65 would result you in missing some legitimate calls. I recall OCBC calling from a +65 prefix.

I added +656* , +658*, and +659* on Hiya.

Going to see how effective it is.

My rationale - if local companies want to cheap out and spoof their own numbers, then too bad. They need to learn that they should be doing things that scammers do - don't call from overseas and spoof local numbers. It only compounds the problem if they behave in a way that scammers can spoof.

A bank surely has the financial means to call from a local number - they can well afford to.
