How can we auto-block harassing calls ?

How can we auto-block harassing calls ?

We're getting 2-3 calls a day from robo-callers with caller IDs like V112617000000.. or similar (there's a new ID on each call - but the same recorded pitch).. we REALLY need a way to automatically block these kinds of "anonymous" calls.

Someone should come along with a Comcast solution, but in the meantime: Have you tried  the National Do Not Call Registry? https://www.donotcall.gov/

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Re: How can we auto-block harassing calls ?

I make a complaint to the "do not call" site every time.. after all, the fines for this activity are guaged on the number of "instances"..

so, everyone should register complaints. And we screen.. and use the call blocking available via Comcast.. BUT we have currently a list of over 40 blocked telemarker numbers (between comcast and what our panasonic phone blocks).. it's really getting ridiculous .
