Re: Verizon Charging Money to Block Extortionists


My main point... a customer can't block Unknown, Private, or non standard phone numbers from a circuit through the free Verizon blocking. This should be offered to customers without charging them a monthly fee just to do that.

My secondary point... for blocking such fraud as an analogy could say that ISPs have no responsibility to limit email spam and the concern over legitimate emails being blocked but they do a very good job at both in general. Much like email spam there are multiple ways of phone companies blocking fraudulent phone calls with having only a negligible amount of legitimate calls being block.
