Erm... Requiring that ISPs notify customers that phone numbers in the same
area code may not be "local" has WHAT exactly to do with making ISPs
liable for other people's fraud? Sounds like a disclaimer requirement to
me, nothing related to fraud just good business practice. You must be
confusing this with exotic 900# and international locations which are used
to scam people.
