Female Green Energy slammer gets abusive with a female bot

Hello all!

This call was entertaining because it was a “legitimate” telemarketer (i.e. it was a legal entity trying to take over as your energy supplier) from a professional-sounding woman. A Jolly Roger Telephone bot named “Salty Sally” intercepted the call and turned the tables on this company.

About halfway through, the telemarketer thinks Sally is messing with her and says some pretty abusive things. But then Salty Sally manages to calm her down again. It’s pretty funny. If you have not tried Jolly Roger Telephone, I cannot convey the feeling of satisfaction when YOUR telemarketer gets caught by a Jolly Roger bot. It’s one thing to listen to these calls from other people, but think about the times you or your loved ones get telemarketing calls. I’ve had many people say they look forward to telemarketing calls now. And I can really use your help to waste as much telemarketer time as possible. I’m trying to put a dent in their business practice.

Energy slammers like this one need to disappear. Heck, all unsolicited telemarketing should disappear. I love telecommunications and I want to protect the telephone network and your phone!

Thanks for listening!

Fake DirecTV agent wants to upgrade our equipment

Hello all! I’m back from an epic road trip through Yellowstone, Devil’s Tower, the Badlands, and Mt. Rushmore! But I’m back and wanted to make sure I post another call before you all give up on me!

I found this call and thought it was kind of interesting. A “DirecTV” agent is calling all customers to upgrade their equipment free of charge. It starts out pretty legit and I can imagine plenty of people are fooled. Heck, for all I know, DirecTV really does outsource calls like this to offshore call centers.

I usually do not mention the company name, and I usually bleep it out before posting the recordings, but I would be interested in someone with DirecTV listening to this call. You can hear it start pretty legit, but it sure gets crazy. Either this is an outsourced DirecTV agent who can turn off the monitoring/recording feature of their phone, or this is a complete scam. Maybe someone familiar with this scam can post a comment?

I started all of this to protect your phone line, but I like to think that Jolly Roger Telephone is protecting the brands of these major companies too.

Anyway – please enjoy and thank you for listening!
