Nuisance Calls

Nuisance Calls

When will Comcast do something substantive and effective about nuisance calls???!!!  The frequency of these calls is getting greater.  The 25-number blocking list is useless.  I renew it each time I accumulate 25 new incoming nuisance calls.  Each renewal is totally different from the one before it.  This has gone way beyond annoying.  I believe that it is a basic responsibility of companies that provide voice service to provide effective call blocking.

Re: Nuisance Calls

There is no perfect solution.  These callers use a device that generates a false caller ID that can change with every call.  You can't block everbody.  Services such as Nomorobo will register a number that you can block with Comcast's simultaneous ring but it won't stop spoofing.  


Best I can offer is use the Comcast list, get Nomorobo, get an answering machine with call screening and never answer unknown calls.
