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.

  • My phone has been rung 12 times in the last day alone- mostly spoofs, once by "async' (number spoofed); 3 times by "Affordable healthcare" (2 diff. numbers also spoofed); Ft. Worth Tx, Plainville CT, Wolcott. Ct; all spoofs; "AKULA MALLIKHAR"... a credit card scam from another local spoof, and the rest from a V-dialer; spoofed local number.

    FWIW, simultaneous ring was successful in limiting the ring to one before dispensing with most of these (I want zero rings).  Someone is determined to get through and I would like it stopped.  At present someone (V-dialer presumably- spoofing MY NUMBER!) is trying to get through every 10 or 20 minutes... it rings once.

    This is criminal harassment.
