Phone gets blown up by SPAM calls

Spam, spoof, robocalls still completely out of control- even with nomorobo up and running.  Spoofing numbers has proven to be an effective workaround for the criminal harassment industry.  Is there any way to challenge calls... have the caller key in a number to complete the call?  Would my "Friend in the Digital Age®" consider helping law enforcement find these criminals and bring them to justice... or at very least block calls with inauthentic caller ID info?

The latest robocall shtick is the ID info starts with "V" then a random string of numbers... with the call back number spoofed, of course.  

My phone is useless for incoming calls because of this.

  • "async" with a spoofed random local number figures fairly prominently, too... actually leaves a robo-recording on my answering machine after illegally ringing my phone... credit card scam suggesting rate changes to my card that I should have received in the mail and to get a new zero interest card.  Female voice speaking American English but I bet if I were to "press 1" I'd be talking to someone in a Pakistani boiler room call center.

    Please please please enable me to block inauthentic CID (spoofed) calls.

  • that we're promised a fix

    Who promised a fix?  Any call-blocking service or device is only effective against known numbers.  You can't stop unknown numbers from ringing your phone.  Well, I can, but that's only my allow-list strategy.

    You on the right track to build your own strategy.
