Over the last few days I have been inundated with "You've overpaid your utility bills so press 1 if you're a sucker" robocalls. I report every one of them to Nomorobo. All the calls come in with unverified (naturally) caller-IDs. Is there some technical reason that Cox can't implement an option that blocks all calls with an unverified caller-ID? This is beyond annoying.
The calls aren't anonymous in the strict sense of the word. There's either a fake, unverified caller-ID name or a geographic location (e.g., "PROVIDENCE RI"). As they used to say in the TV commercials, "We can land a man on the moon but..."
I can't believe there's no technology solution to this.
I don't know if Cox is still implementing STIR/SHAKEN (verified calls) because I've recently received some legitimate, familiar calls and there was no "V" in front of the numbers. One call was from our Management Office with a Verizon landline-telephone number...no "V."
I also checked my Cox Call History for the past 120 days, and none of the logged calls had a "V." I've received V-calls before but nothing in the past 4 months.
I just noticed that myself. The last call I got with a V verification was on 10/17. Nothing since then and I actually do get a valid phone call once in a while.
I think the last one I got was last year. I got a call from an un-V'd number and then the number called back with "V." I don't trust STIR/SHAKEN.
