Harassing phone calls...

I'm being harassed by some kind of IRS robo-dial scammers. They are calling 7-8 times a day from multiple locations across the US. How can I PERMANENTLY stop these calls?

I know how annoying unwanted calls can become, ERISTE9. The FTC is actually collecting examples of robocalls https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/feature-0025-robocalls and phone scams https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0076-phone-scams for proper investigation to end these unsolicited calls once and for all. Registering your line on the National Do Not Call registry is certainly another good step to take and we do offer a few options to block options at http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/block-numbers that may help to relieve some of those calls. If you find that the calls continue, there is also the option to change your number at no cost through My Verizon http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/change-mobile-number-faqs/ .
