[asterisk-users] OT: Question on Caller ID (Spoofing calls with Asterisk)

I got a call from an overseas call center telling me about the
problems with the Windows machine I was using. They wanted to remote
in and fix things for me ... (Ignore the fact I use a MacBook Pro or
an ASUS laptop with Debian).

What I found curious was the caller's name was Asterisk, and the
caller's number was Asterisk at 10 or or Astrk at 10 similar. (I don't
recall the exact number, but it was malformed and it had an '@' in

I'd like to read a little more about spoofing calls with Asterisk. Can
anyone provide a reference?

Thanks in advance.
