you can't even block numbers anymore as they come in "spoofed" to be similar to your number. I actually watched as a call from a midwestern state number that I could not get to in time, changed into a local number in my "recent history". I have been getting calls from someone on the other side of the state, I know it is not really them, it is that their number is similar to mine so they are spoofed numbers.

When the "IRS" calls, tell them you have a hearing problem and could they transfer you to someone who does not have an accent. They won't be able to do it as they are calling from a foreign call center.
