You could easily fall for that one - wow.
Gotta be diligent and on top of things.

Talking about scams.
I just got a couple of calls within mins of each other - but on different lines.
The old IRS scam and they will send the police out and arrest me if I don't do what they want right away.
What baffles me is, they end it with, "You must call 240-718-xxxx right away."
If they are really at this phone number, why can't the IRS, Government, police, or someone go find them.
And if this is NOT their number - then how would they pull off the scam?


If CON is the opposite of PRO
then what is the opposite of Progress?

SIP trunks can be anywhere in the world.  They're probably out of US jurisdiction.
