T-1 trunks don't pass along ANI, and certainly not Caller ID (Caller ID is
technically different from ANI [automatic number identification] but the
concept is the same). They'd have to really know what they were doing
first of all, and second of all they'd have to know the right people to be
able to trace the call. Even then, there's not much they can do without
admitting that they are breaking several laws themselves for their
egregious spamming practices. I only hope that they reveal themselves so
I can really do some damage.
