[OpenSIPS-Users] Fraud Detection Module Inquiry

One more inquiry on this module. Is it possible to have the module ignore
prefixes being set in the fraud rules? For our scenarios, the FROM
Address/user is the same for most of our calls. On our PBX's we do not
really give out DID's to each of our users, so when a user makes an
outbound call, the FROM address is always going to be same and set to the
main number of our system. Within the fraud detection module, I have a
prefix of 99 defined (how we denote an outbound call) and starting getting
tons of false positive notifications, as the pair being matched would be
<800number, 99numberDialed>. This quickly filled up the sequential calls
threshold as every call being made had the same FROM Address and matched
against the 99 prefix.

The way we operate, I created 30 minute intervals Sun-Sat with the same
threshold values (48 rows of rules). I am hoping I can omit the prefix
matching and just match the dialed number to the appropriate 30 minute time
interval? so the pair being matched would be <800 number, full number
dialed> ? I tried setting a blank prefix and say "No rule matched" syslog
