Spam telephone calls to a landline?

I have been getting many spam telephones to my landline (VOIP). Any suggestions on what authorities to contact?

About 5 or more spoofed-number pishing calls a day. I have a block list I can and do add the numbers to, but of course these are spoofed and I need to add new numbers to the list everyday. The FCC "do not call" list does not work with these calls since the callers do not give a shit and are originating from India. I have reported some of the numbers I could identify with an actual entity to the FCC. To keep reporting every new number would become a full time job. Of course, we do not pick up the calls.
Who can I contact about this? I would like to complain to some authority so they might consider pursuing some law or regulation about it. My own internet provider (Oceanic Time/Warner) will not/cannot do anything.
