Call Blocking a 9 digit call ID number

New Poster

Call Blocking a 9 digit call ID number

I am getting frequent calls from the infamous spamer who says they represent Microsoft.  They are getting smarter because now they are using the number 15-875-4550 which is 9 digits.  Comcast says they need a valid 10 digit number.  This number is now calling about every 1/2 hour!!

HELP would be appreciated!

There is nothing that Call Screening can do as it uses properly formatted numbers... it cannot block improper numbers....   Your solution may be to purchase and install a call blocking device that "can" handle improper numbering and/or area codes....  additiionally, these units can sometimes block "hundreds" of numbers versus the 25 that Comcast provides for.
