How do I block an incoming 9 digit phone call?

I keep getting called from a "817-000-894" number.  I tried blocking the number via my online account and it says I need to enter 10 digits in order to block the number.  I have a SAMSUNG Intensity II basic phone.

Thanks D1fz, I tried that a few days ago via my online account and I'm still getting calls (4 so far this morning).

I would also like to know how to block a 9 digit phone number.  I got a call tonight from 999-888-777.  I did not answer it as it looked strange.  I did a search on the internet and found that many people in Florida in the past few days have gotten calls from this same number.  A few people answered and said they could not understand a word the person on the other end was saying.  So hey Verizon get you sh**t together and tell your customers how to block a number like this.  When logging into my account, it will only let me block 10 digit numbers.

JS135 We know that unwanted calls can be annoying. To answer your question, there is not a way to block 9 digit or international numbers. We only allow blocking standard 10 digit U.S numbers.

Verizon- It's time to fix your inability to be able to block international calls. I'm getting hang up calls day and night from #202281716. You're telling me there's nothing you can do?
