Bah. Not to underrate having a strong and clued abuse team. However, throwing more people at this is a non starter. You need to automate.

Automation is a non-starter unless you have people to deal with the exceptions. If you don't deal with exceptions, eventually problems with any automated system will overwhelm you. You can only hid behind IVR recordings "You call is very important to us" for so long.
