Block scam calls from leaving voicemail?

I have a Galaxy S10+ and Magenta Plus plan.  I started receiving "Social Security" scam robocalls from a 520 area code number about a week ago, and suddenly in the last 2 days, they're calling me non-stop, literally every 30 to 60 minutes during the day.  I blocked the number after the first couple instances but I'm still getting voicemail notifications and my VM is clogged with these scam robo messages.

Is there a way to block the caller entirely so they can't leave voicemail?  I saw on a couple other boards/threads that there are 3rd party apps that can do this but I don't want to have to install another app just to deal with this nuisance.

BTW, when I first started getting the calls, I once let it play through the robocall message and it said it was putting me through to somebody.  The guy who answered was very confused, so I hung up.  The second time it was a guy who immediately started cursing at me.  I then realized the number is bouncing me to others who think they're getting called from the scammer.  So don't call the number back or stay on the line unless you want to perpetuate the scam... well, not so much a scam as some advanced but really dumb prank call game... or else a means of trying to flood our cell network in order to try to disable it??

Anyway, how do I block calls from a particular number from leaving VMs?

Does this blocker work on all unwanted calls, or just those T-Mobile identifies as scams? There’s a relative that’s bothering me and my husband and we’d like to stop getting voicemails from him. “Stop calling us” isn’t working.
