[VoiceOps] Disclosing Restricted Caller ID to customer

You don’t know if it really is harassment.

Tell the customer you have the call details and will retain the data for 90 days.  Have them call the police and open a case for harassment.  The police can get a subpoena and request the call data.

Subject: [VoiceOps] Disclosing Restricted Caller ID to customer

Greetings all, Had an interesting case come up today that I wanted some feedback on.

Customer called claiming they had been receiving harassing calls to their business number, But the calls were caller ID blocked (Caller likely dialed *67 before the call). I found the CDR's for the call in question, And sure enough "Anonymous" <Restricted> was the displayed Calling number and CNAM.

Out of curiosity, I went and pulled the capture of the same call from Homer. And sure enough, The actual calling number is delivered in the Remote-Party-ID field, With Privacy=full.

Obviously, The caller asked for... and expected that data to be private. What's everyones thoughts on the legality of disclosing that information to my customer receiving the call? Would you provide it on request to the end user? Or limit that information only if requested by legal request? (Court order or request from law enforcement)
