Was it from a US mobile number? Or other country? There is a good site for finding the carrier for US numbers. It has their abuse email addresses and they will typically investigate and suspend/terminate their customer.

Thanks for the reply.
Internet phone numbers (VOIP) like Skype, allow one to type in any phone number they like, even yours (used as revenge if you block their fake number).
I'm Australia but most fake calls have non-Australian accent's predominantly Indian (not native American).
I tell them I have  a "Aboriginal" curse which is for your family and friends, keep away from them (often they panic and hang-up)!
But reporting BOTH IP's AND Registrar to abuse seems to of turn them off calling me. Some like GoDaddy on their web reporting allow specific Mobile spam reporting.
None for over a month, before that many times night and day (probaly removed from a " spam hitlist")
Sample you can also send a Snapshot of your mobile screen (I don't)
