Only if you also filter _OUTGOING_ traffic, by port, to allow only the
destination IPs that the customer equipment should be seeing.
Filtering the ingress direction (customer equipment -> your network)
does not help (until _everyone_ does it), since the spammer only needs
to _receive_ traffic with the hijacked IP, not send it (that can be
done from the other corner of the spammer's triangle route).
