I've had a couple of missed calls from a four digit number: 80**

Any idea what or where this would be coming from?

Caller ID is passed as recieved,  we do see some carriers not pay a lot of attention to correct presention of CLI this also applies to some VOIP providers that have open access networks, possibly it could be an international inbound call, with no details it's hard to tell though.

We have stopped answering a lot of unknown calls due to telemarketers.  If it was important they would have left a message.

She insists on answering all calls because it "might be something important". She also refuses to be rude to them or to tell them to F off since thats "so crude"

Try asking them to "hold the line", then leave the phone alone for 30 minutes, finally announce "I have to go now" and hang up.

Mhhh yes I have seen this callerid myself and I am pretty sure I know where it comes from and no it's not us Sealed..... if it comes from Telecom it will present with generally with 0000 very rare to see Telecom not correctly apply ANI, so odds on it's a SP that doesn't do ANI presentation control

I havent had any problems with telemarketers since I had my Telecom line relinquished and just kept my VFX number on fusion but in saying that if I do I will probably invest in the advanced feature set and programme any telemarketer number into selective call rejection.

But that way you don't get to hear the telemarketer's reaction. Far too humane.

Telemarketers wake me up often since I sleep weird hours.

Perhaps just make something like telecoms voice activated ivr to run them round in circles till they hang up frustrated ;)
