Getting "Spam Risk" ID calls. Blocked it today.

I'm sure I tried to block them before.

Anybody know what this is exactly? Is it a legit "spam warning"? Doubtful I suspect.

Why would they use such a suspicious ID?

And did Congress not just pass a new law re spam calls? Or was it just roba calls?

1. I believe it's a service of your phone carrier.

4. Carrier service

I have an android on Verizon. A few months ago, following a normal update, my phone started giving me a "Potential Spam" warning on some incoming calls. Heeding the warning, I have not answered any of those calls, and validating the warning, none of these calls has resulted in a voice mail. I figure that if it was a legitimate call they would leave a message, so this service seems to have value.

6. Didn't you check it?

Did you look up the number on Google or some complaint boards, like http://whycall.me? Sometimes if the numbers belong to scammers, people might have reported them online.
