For reference, the latest firmware for your ATA can be found here: http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=9.0cruisx wrote: ↑Hey guys, so I have a Obi100 with voip.ms all hooked up. Over the past year or so these sip scanners have gotten ridiculous where now I am getting around 118-150 calls per day of random numbers like 1011, 9822, 0006 etc . Can those of you with a similar setup please advise on how to get rid of these or what settings I need to add to my Obi or voip.ms to minimize the amount of fake calls.

CallerID of the call was likely spoofed (faked/forged)

The unassuming part is, they knew I am the same person owning the mobile and VoIP. It's rare I provide both, unless it's very trust worthy sites. Certainly hope this is not the onset of an ID theft attempt.
Everytime picked up the line was silent and then dropped.

It could be a robo dialer script that automatically spoofs a similar number to the one that it's dialing. Who blocks his or her own number (or area code and prefix), after all? Telemarketers are also using spoofing outgoing numbers that appear to either look like you're calling yourself--or that look similar to your own phone number.
