Call Blocking does not. Is this just a scam too?
Enthusiast - Level 2

Verizon call blocking is a useless 'service', dozens of calls come through with no phone number at all on the caller ID, something Verizon specifically states it will NOT DO.  Any ideas?

Verizon call blocking does not address scammers and money-seekers who have caller ID of "Not-Available' -- honestly my dog could figure out how to block these but Verizon cannot. Besides paying more money to someone else, is there any hope for the people who expected the Verizon service would work?

Scam no.  A service that needs to be update to the 21th Century, yes.  Still based on early callerid tecnhnology which is easily bypassed by all those so called "telemarketers" .   You should have now trouble with ligitimate callers, but lots of illegal calls come in.
