[VoiceOps] fraud protection

We just had an unfortunate compromise and racked up a large amount of
calls in a 12 hour period. The attack seems to be for financial gain
in that the most frequent destination is a conference call service in
Poland, that possibly keeps calls open waiting for a PIN to be entered.

Is there any basis for expecting that the upstream carrier should have
some protections that would limit our liability?


P.S.  For those people who feel compelled to point out that we should
have (better) protection on our end: Yes, Thank you, message received!
