Hi, I have been getting spam calls for the past three weeks now - two to three times a day. They are all from a local, spoofed number. When I call back, it's automatically a busy signal. When there is someone on the line, it's a robocall saying my social security number has been suspended. Is there any way to prevent these scammers from bothering me during working hours? It's ridiculous.
We know that unwanted calls can be annoying and we want to help resolve your issue. Have you attempted to block the calls with our free Caller Filter application? Click here for instructions in question #8 https://www.verizon.com/support/call-filter-faqs/ .
Calling back let's them know they have an actual person and will keep harassing. There's the filter that can help, but it won't stop 100% of those type of calls.
I don't answer from numbers I don't know for that reason alone. You can either ignore those calls or change your number.
