"TELESPAMMER" might be a good alternative.

Technically, toll-free numbers are INWATS and shouldn't appear in CLID
in the first place.  We have a few customers who insist on displaying a
toll-free number as CLID.  They typically have difficulty calling
several destinations, particularly international calls and other
toll-free numbers.  We actively discourage our customers from doing this.

My home asterisk system, for example, routes these to the wonderful
telemarketer-torture routine.
