"Unavailable Calls"

In the last two weeks I have received numerous calls from "unavailable". The calls will remain open with silence until I hang up. Verizon's official position is that there is nothing they can do to identify the caller. I really don't care who is doing this, but feel there must be a dept. that can contact the caller and ask them to stop. Anyone know how to cut through red tape on this one? I have recent data on exactly when the calls occurred.

Verizon is correct. There is no originating telephone number that is associated with a call that appears as "Unknown" or "Unavailable". Those that appear as "Blocked" or "Private" do have a telephone number associated, they are just suppressed from the end user's Caller ID display (they can be obtained in cases of harrassment or police emergency, though).
