At wits end with unwanted calls

I would like for Cox to help actually end unwanted telemarketing and scam calls- from spoofed numbers.  Over the past three days my phone has been rung eleven times- each spoofed numbers.... I just got a robocall that opened with "this is not a solicitation...", telling me how my credit card activity had been monitored for the past six months and I'm now qualified to receive a discount.

... spoofed number-meaning they know their call isn't wanted- it's in violation of the law, these are criminals.  Their action to ring my phone without implicit authorization is a violation of the law.  This repeated criminal harassment has rendered my phone useless... apart from being a harassment tool for parties not being billed for the service. and some have altered their strategy to account for simultaneous ring... placing two calls in quick succession with the second getting through.

In the last day I've received three from "Affordable Heathcare"... the CiD number is not in service... two calls from one number and one from a number that is one digit off from the other.

This is criminal harassment.

  • I just got a call yesterday from someone telling me my number is spam calling people. They weren't so happy to call me and tell me and I have no idea what to do so I feel you pain. I don't have Cox phone though.

  • Hi Stinkfoot63,


    I know spoofed calls can be very frustrating. If you haven't already, you can update your information on the Do Not Call Registry and sign up for Nomorobo: nomorobo.zendesk.com/.../360001351692-Cox

    You can also report spoofing here: www.fcc.gov/.../spoofing-and-caller-id.


    Thank you,
    Nichole
  • I’ve had that multiple dial attempts a split second apart issue for months despite having Nomorobo.  The new issue is the absolutely criminal amount of calls that have a “V” code at the bottom to circumvent Nomorobo.  I feel like Nomorobo only works 50% of the time.  I’m even getting Spam calls at 7:00 on Saturday night and 8:30 on Sunday.  Just ready to rip my phone out of the wall and call it a day.  I wouldn’t have it if it weren’t necessary for a package discount with internet service.

  • I get calls from Microsoft, IRS, & Rachael from card services just to name a few. Do not call registry is a joke & Cox only lets you block a limited amt of #s. There should be a way to just program #s you accept calls from.

    FYI I think there is something like that. It's called Selective Call Acceptance. See link here for instructions, however I think you need the Premium phone plan to get it.
