Unfortunately this is a very common problem with all carriers. The scammers/spammers/phishers use spoofed phone numbers and call lists they get off of the dark web to do what ever it is they intend to do. And being as most of them originate from outside of the U.S., our laws do not apply to them. The phone numbers or email addresses they use are constantly changing so it's almost impossible to block them. Once someone answers the phone or clicks on a link, they know they have a "hot number" and will continue to harass until they get what they want. All one can do is not answer and delete immediately.

All of the providers are working hard to overcome this but the fraudsters are always one step ahead of the law when it comes to technology, money, and schemes.

Get a phone with a white list and only allow those calls to ring through.
