A few months ago I was getting phone calls from this indian pretending to be from a government dept. demanding fo speak to someone who doesn't live hear..I told him and he wouldn't stop pestering me. I got online and blocked the number I got online from other people who had the same issue but today he started calling again.
He gave me a new fake name and the same story but this time when i went to my verizon phone calls list on theis website. all his phone calls (which were 6) were either anonymous or private...I blocked several 980 numbers but these dont have a number that i can add to the list. Is there a way to block Anonymous, Private or Unavailable numbers because the cops wont do anything other than change my number but this is crazy that i cant protect my family from this indian a-hole. Please help me.

Is there a way to block Anonymous, Private or Unavailable numbers ..
When a caller withholds their number you can use Anonymous Call Rejection to block them. This type of call shows up as "Private" in my area. However, there are ways that callers can withhold their name but the number is shown. Calls like "unavailable." The only way to block those calls is by using the per number block. Unfortunately, you can only block 10 numbers. And the people who call have a lot more than 10 numbers available.
The only solution I've found is an answering machine that lets me screen the calls.

Fill complaint with FCC. Also in some instances your local police can deal with it. If they are threatening you with harm.
