China Mobile has set up a new system to block overseas calls as the country intensifies its crackdown on telecoms fraud.

A China Mobile user in Zhejiang province said he received a message from the operator giving him an option to block spam messages.

This came after the provincial branch of China Mobile reportedly sent a message to some subscribers, requiring them to confirm by May 20 if they would like to receive overseas calls. Users who did not register would be blocked from receiving calls from overseas as well as Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

China Mobile’s Zhejiang branch had confirmed the news and said they would notify customers gradually via SMS.

China Mobile’s Hebei branch notified users that overseas SMS receiving services would be suspended from May 5, and those who wished to continue getting them should apply separately.

The notices come as China intensifies its efforts to curb telecoms fraud. In April, the number of such cases had declined for more than nine months, according to the Ministry of Public Security.
