It may be that these people are just making up numbers for u guys. Maybe transposing a couple of their numbers. I would answer, tell them they have the wrong number and if the calls don't stop ask for a supervisor. If it still doesn't stop tell them u are going to report them to the proper authorities.

U can also look in ur app store for app that blocks the calls. I know they have them.

Good luck!!!!

I agree! With what I already pay each month for the services I have I shouldn't need to pay extra to be able to block a harassing number!

The iOS 7 blocking is nice, but it's useless in cases where the phone scammer uses different spoofed caller ID phone numbers every time.

 

Personally, I do believe that AT&T is somehow responsible for this. These calls started as soon as I quit my AT&T service at the exact same time they started blasting me with snail-mail and email marketing campaigns urging me to come back to AT&T. Clearly they leveraged some marketing partner that failed to properly secure my private data.

Download the app "Mr. Number".  It is a free app that blocks calls and texts.  You must have the app running for it to work though.  When a blocked number calls, it rings for maybe one second and then a little box pops up saying this call was blocked by Mr. Number.

 

Hope this helps!

one of the problems is, you complain to the do not call a million times, then the creeps call you from another number, so apparently they've been contacted, but they change the number, so you'll end up getting calls from one of their other numbers. 

  It stinks....I figured I'd go call them from a phone box, but try and find one!

The first link is broken. I find that a lot on AT&T's web site. I have the same question for a landline. A telemarketer from overseas robo-calls me at 6 AM and many times during the day with their robo-calls. Most of them change their spoofed number but this number keeps showing up for over a month.

ones I have the same problem, this person will fill my mail box. Got tired of it didn't want to change my number so I went to the local sheriff's office and wait for the person to call, and hand over the phone to the sheriff.  He identify him self and said if you call this number again we will trace it back to you. That was last time the person call me. Hope this help. Good luck.

@Moneylove100 att does have a period of time. Before they give the numbers out. I believe it's 60 days.
