Are there any laws that protect me from unknown or blocked numbers that show up on my caller id?
According to the FCC Truth In Caller ID Act makes it legal for people to call you privately. According the the FCC Law:
The FCC’s Caller ID rules protect the privacy of the person calling by requiring telephone companies to make available free, simple and uniform per-line blocking and unblocking procedures. These rules give you the choice of delivering or blocking your telephone number for any interstate (between states) call you make. (The FCC does not regulate blocking and unblocking of intrastate calls.)
