We’ve all been there when it comes to those annoying mobile phone calls.
Missing calls from numbers you don’t know and spending ages wondering who it was – or answering said numbers and getting a tad angry shall we say, because it’s the 10th one from a cold-caller and quite frankly it’s just wasting your time!
In a lot of cases more recently, people are getting scammed by these types of calls – being tricked into giving away security details.
Well one guy has decided to fight back in literally the best way ever.
(On behalf of me for all the s**t one’s I’ve had, including the one time I was scammed – thank you)!
The guy in question – a security developer – has invented a genius way that not only stops the centers from phoning you but from phoning anyone full stop!
The guy, we shall refer to as ‘Mr Genius’, started his fight back against a call center that was pretending to be employees of the IRS.
He wrote a script that called the scammers’ phone back 28 times per second – so basically flooded their phone lines and made it impossible for them to receive any other calls, ruining their operations.
