How do I report a fraudulent phone number?

I received a call yesterday from 585-479-8489 and they left a recorded voicemail message saying I had charges against me and would be taken into custody and I wanted to report it because AT&T Call Protect did not flag the number. How can I communicate this information. I already blocked the number on my phone and submitted it to the national Do Not Call website.

Don’t bother, the number it came from was likely not the real number anyway. Flagging it in the call protect app is about all you can do.

I always tell them to come get me, I’m a hopeless deadbeat.  They hang up.   🤣

Most If these are spoofed numbers.  Don’t answer a number you don’t know.
