000-000-0000 calls getting through my blacklist

Post by chrisarpad » Fri Jun 19, 2009 9:28 pm

First off let me just say that I just love the blacklist feature, thank you!
I am getting calls that come through undetected with a number listed as
000-000-0000. Any suggestions how to stop this sort of calls?

It is a known problem that will be fixed in a future version of the software. The 000-000-0000 is not a real number - it is either a spoofed number or represents data that has been scrambled (again probably due to spoofing). Telemarketers are famous for this type of stuff. Many of us are waiting for the ability to block these calls and it will be happening. Just not sure of the timeframe.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
