So these scum bags spoof local numbers. I'm not sure why, but I imagine it's to verify live number for a higher payout when they sell the list.

This is exactly why it's done. Money.

Many times there will be no one on the other end of the line. It's just a machine programmed to look for "live" numbers that will be sold to telemarketers. The rest of the time it will be the telemarketers calling after the company has bought your number.

I turned of texting on my Verizon phone due to this problem escalating to sending out text messages,

It's a real problem once it starts. I've had up to 20 spam calls in a day.

Since I can't shoot the person behind this crap, could I shoot there computer and it be fine?
