Revenge on a IRS Phone Scamming Company - Call Flooder

Imagine that you're expecting an important call from, say, a client, your employer, a prospective employer, your MD calling with the results from your latest STD test... okay, whatever.  So the phone rings, you snatch it up, and it turns out to be some stupid towel head trying to run a Windoze support scam, a transfer funds out of Nairobi Bank scam, or the old I.R.S. scam.  If you're anything like me, you'd like to crawl through the wires and rip his tonsils out, then take an axe to his equipment.  But he's in India and I'm in the U.S.

As it turns out, some dumb towel head called the wrong man, and he decided to retaliate.  I found this posted on Reddit - Justice Served, and enjoyed it.  The original is on YouTube.

My thought is that we, the Great Unwashed, have an official Do Not Call Registry paid for by our tax dollars and managed by our Federal Government.  Why can't the Feds retaliate the way this guy did?  Better yet, why don't they hire the man and let him start fighting solicitation calls and scams full time?  I think that would be a great use of tax dollars.

My only question is: Is this real, or is it CNN News?

Mad Jack:
We get at least 3-4 calls from whoever per week, and every time, I take down the ID and report the number to both the FTC and the FCC.
And this is on a bloody private, unlisted LANDLINE!
(talk about brass balls)

Usually, they abandon the call after our machine picks up (with that marvelous default voice

But I do agree with you on our DO NOT CALL LIST (which we have been on since it's inception).
Make the system work for US (the ones who pay the salaries of these lawgivers).

Love the video.

Stay safe out there.
