Not sure about that. In a company with many thousands of calls
per day who could ever find out that someone is cheating?
Remember that no indication whatsoever is written to the CDRs.
If you're lucky you could find the culprit by looking at the
CDRs you get from the telecom provider.

In a perfect world nobody would cheat on you and we would not
need passwords, firewalls, ...
