BT's VOIP service (Digital Voice) already lets you do something similar through their Cloud Voice app:

In reply to a post by farrinaf:
I’m a longtime user of this Truecall device which is excellent.

With an eye to the future (FTTP going live) I have been investigating whether it would work on VOIP. Much to my surprise having spoken to the manufacturer the answer is yes (needs a software update).

Whilst I am yet to test its VOIP functionality, if you are plagued by spam calls IMHO it could be a sound investment and worth investigating.

This is like buying a set of spark plugs for an electric car....

As promised in previous post an update.

Basically as suggested by Ferretuk it does not work - I have contacted Truecall and invited their further comment, but have heard nothing so far.

Flextel allow you to blacklist even withheld numbers, as long as they were able to see the number. 99% of the time they seem to be able to, although they will hide some of the number from the customer (e.g. the withheld number will be shown as something like 01234 567xxx). The last three digits of the number are still masked for privacy reasons.

Call rates may not necessarily be on the cheap side for some people though. You could also make use of their IVR system to force the incoming caller to press a number (such as 1) to verify that they are a real person.
