No way to stop them. Just let it go to voicemail. My policy is if the call doesn't ID with a name that is in the phone already I don't answer. They will leave a voicemail or they won't. Easy to screen the calls that way,

On an iPhone, you can block individual numbers. It doesn't stop the original call, but it does block repeat calls from the same number.

I do not answer my phone unless the number is in my address book. if legit, they will leave a voice mail.
Your phone may have an option to silence calls that are not in your address book also.

I add the spam numbers to a Spam list, then block it. At least blocks that number from future calls. I also noticed when I changed my iPhone SIM card to Tmobile from Sprint, their spam blocker app works very well (and it's free). I went from getting multiple spam calls a day to a few a week.
