Annoying call with hacked Caller ID?

Annoying call with hacked Caller ID?

We have been getting an annoying call from 304.743.8823 for several YEARS now.  The last, were on 8/14/15 and 8/17/15 and the Caller ID shown was for a name, which differs only my the middle initial, for one of our grown sons.  We have no idea how he was able to get the Caller ID to show that name, as we usually just hang up on him and maybe he thought we'd talk if we thought it was our son calling instead of that jerk.  

 

I think the guy may have a Certified Microsoft Technician ticket and he's fishing for business as he always says that he' noticed that our PC is having problems but that he can fix them for us! We've asked him to remove us from his call list "n" times and we're registered with the No Call boards. 

 

Can Comcast Voice do anything about such a nuisance? 

 

Thanks for any suggestions,

Since that number is properly formatted, you can do the following... goto:  https://pf.connect.comcast.net/OptimusPref/prefs/voice
