Cold calls from Manchester?

About 4 times over the last week or so, a number from Manchester UK has called my home phone concerning a "business arrangement". My wife took the call each time and explained I wasn't interested as we live in CH. Googling the number throws up 3 results for staff members at Manchester Metroplitan University.
My wife said the girl spoke with an Indian accent and thought it might be the Microsoft scam.

Anyone else had this? Is it possible to block numbers on Swisscom landline?

Nope, "Regency London" or something similar.

Re: Cold calls from Manchester?

Sounds like number spoofing, they probably got the numbers from the same website as yourself.
