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’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 believe the strategy of placing nearly simultaneous calls is meant to defeat nomorobo.... the first call occupies the screening number so that the second gets through. It's an indication that they know that their call is not wanted and makes it a willful criminal act.
