New SIP functionality the latest scam tool?

Reports have surfaced regarding the use of readily available SIP based services to spoof directory numbers (DN) and commit acts of fraud. The use of these services to deliver fake Caller ID introduces an additional layer of administration and much more processing for law enforcement. This is an issue long foreseen however ignored as SIP services were allowed to sold by VoIP providers without the necessary regulations in place.

Networkers will continue to monitor these developments and provide additional updates.
