Incorrect. Call center PBX's usually use T1, E1 and/or SIP trunks. Any of these types of carrier lines allow for a feature called "Calling Party Substitution". It allows a given set of phones or even the entire set of lines to broadcast ANY number the PBX programmer sets. We do this all of the time for customers for legitimate reasons and while here in the US there are regulations aimed at preventing outbound marketers/sales organizations from spoofing their calls with bogus numbers, there is nothing stopping them from doing it..
