receiving international calls

The last several days I, and many of my acquaintances have been receiving many random calls from other countries.  The calls never complete, and I have never tried to answer them, but is there a way to stop them.   One came in this morning, and when I grabbed the phone to check who was calling, I mistakenly hit the last call received, and it redialed it.  I hung up immediately upon realizing it, and the call was never answered.  Any idea if I will get a charge for that?  I am very frustrated that many calls like this come in daily - is there anything verizon can do about this?

We can definitely understand the frustration of receiving multiple calls from unknown international numbers. There are options available through services such as Call Filter and blocking numbers. Are you receiving these calls from the same number?
