Unwanted calls

I am receiving unwanted (scam) calls every day. My call-id shows a number of 18-8899 or 188-8899. How can I stop these calls

You cannot block these with the Call Screening offered by Comcast Voice Services as these numbers are not properly formatted ( xxx-xxx-xxxx ).  You may try and setup NoMoRobo and if these numbers have been associated with spammers, it will auto block them.  You can visit this site for information about that service which does work on the Comcast system   www.nomorobo.com .   Additionally, some devices are offered in retail that can block calls at the local level and you want to search Google for those models and manufacturers.
