Random Calls from Odd User Names

So far I have had three different calls from three different usernames that are similar. I've been told not to answer these calls and I haven't. The usernames have been aa5.online.systems.update, usa.c3.osx.system.voice.alarm, and e3-alarm.computer.protection.off

 

If anyone else has had problems with these three or others that are similar? Does anyone know who they are or what company is doing this or if they are legit through Skype? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Constant from unique scam addresses. First time in 10 years and now its every day.

This week from: ac4.online.warning.mac.win, ac4.online.warning.mac.win, unknown caller, alfjawoeidiwm...etc

 

I need anyone to be able to contact me because I paid for a phone number, so "contacts only" is not an option. No solution yet. 

 

There is only one thing you can do in response. It could help others perhaps....report each one each time over and over. I wonder if this works though because I found this forum post based on a scam address.

 

DO NOT follow the PC instructions linked here on the mac. Options are grayed out on the mac. On Mac: control-click on scammer's name in the left sidebar list of calls to report them for abuse and block. YOu will get an option to block and popup with report abuse check box sometimes.
