This call is great for several reasons:
- It’s a Windows Support scammer who is trying to take control of my PC and install some ransom-ware. None of you should have any sympathy for this guy.
- It shows the practice of “master/apprentice” that is used for these scams.
- The robot “plays along” really well with the first scammer who is trying to convince us we have a virus.
- The robot aggravates the second guy and completely turns the tables on him. Out of frustration he taunts my robot and tries to get it mad.
- I don’t think he really “got it” that this was a bot and managed to waste over 13 minutes of his (combined) time.
- This really showcases the capabilities of the bot. I was really proud of it when I listened to the frustration of this scammer.
This call was transferred to the bot by one of you – my new Pirate Crew. I really appreciate all of your support and don’t forget to tell when you get a really good call! There are too many for me to sort through.
This is the first call since the Kickstarter ended and I must say the constant fundraising was getting a little tedious. It’s nice to post these for fun again. It was a wonderful experience and I cannot tell you how flattered I am with all the support. Thank you all. I’m your biggest fan.
It strikes me that he might be a recorded bot voice as well. Two bot stuck in an infinite loop. lol!
I’ve gotten this call – and it sounds like from the same man. Does the bot vary at all? Because I would imagine once he encounters it once, he’ll recognize the voice/script and hang up right away next time.
But it’s brilliant. Thanks for the laugh. I’ve kept them on the phone too – but not automatically with a bot like this.
If he recognizes the voice and script then, if he is smart, he should stop calling you. I would think even these scammers would recognize the futility of talking to the same bot next time.
It amazes me how much, If this guy is not another bot, does not listen. And if he is a bot why not use a US voice at least I would listen longer.
