At least they've settled on a specific fake caller ID number, then...
I can't find any official listing of area code 390, but I did find this:
which led me to think it might be a new one.
Don't worry, we have ways of making them tell us who they are, if they call

The number given on that web site goes to the intercept operator here,
so it's a typo. A Google search for "Area Code 390" turned up over
2,000 hits, but the first page was all about telemarketers, so it's
likely that this is a well-known problem.
What I'd like to know is 'How are they spoofing the CID'? If they're
simply resending CID data after the call is answered, I'm not sure
what could be done about that. OTOH, if they're using PRI lines and
misreporting to the IEC, then that's probably actionable.
Please put [Telecom] at the end of your subject line, or I may never
see your post! Thanks!
