Hmm.  Sounds like you only have one option, find out whoever is doing
this.  Hit&run dialups can, in my experience, not be stopped that
easily.  Try to get the most abused dialup providers to cooperate?  I
can imagine a number of ways to make them cooperate.  It depends more
or less on the amount of effort and money you are willing to put in
this I guess.
