Voicemail phone number conflicting in VM and push notification.

I noticed this awhile ago. Now I'm capturing screen shots (attached).  I send unknown numbers to voicemail.  If they leave a message, on the push notification, it shows two numbers but on the voicemail app it only shows the first number.  If I call back the first number, it's disconnected.  The second number goes to VM.  But the 2nd number is the same number on the last 3 calls recevied from unknown number that I sent directly to VM and they left a message. BTW, these are robo calls, telemarketers, etc.

Obviously the do not call run by the FTC is a joke.  Everyone is spoofing phone#'s to hide.  Yet the telephone companies are dragging their feet to put in a real solution, unless you want to (wait for it) "pay for it" - wait I have to pay to stop something you created.   ARGH!

Anyways, back to issue.  I chatted with a verizon person and he had me turn off push notification. Why!  That doesn't solve the issue, it only sweeps it under the rug. 

Anyone else having this issue?

Please don't post phone numbers on this public forum. 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

The numbers are spoofed by the telemarketer.
