Is there a way to Block inbound Caller id Spoofing?

We receive from time to time calls into our call center from pranksters.  Typically they are spoofing the number they are calling from.  Is there a way to block these type of inbound calls?

If the calling number has a regular format, there is no way of knowing if it has been spoofed or not.

At least in the United States, spoofing caller ID is illegal per the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009. You can work with your carrier to trace these calls and refer the matter to law enforcement for prosecution.
