[VoiceOps] Spoofed Traffic

If the calls are fraudulent, there is probably a law enforcement action that the customer can take.  A police report can cross LEC boundaries pretty well.

Subject: [VoiceOps] Spoofed Traffic

One of our customers is reporting that their ANI is being used to make calls. I've verified that the traffic isn't traversing our network, but I'm not sure of where to look next.

The customer doesn't necessarily want to know who is making the calls, but wants them to stop. I know I can contact Verizon, who owns the number, but since the calls aren't being originated from us or our customer, I'm not sure how they can help.

Does anyone have ideas of how to go about blocking this since we aren't the LEC owner of the DID?
