WARNING! VERY EXPLICIT! Help me stop this industry!

I think this is the nastiest call I’ve gotten so far. I hear a lot of nasty calls from overseas, but this call is from an agent in the US and he takes verbal abuse to a whole new level. It starts out with an extremely sweet bot of their own who ‘qualifies’ my bot as a valid contact and sends my bot to their human. That process takes 45 seconds. Then it takes only another 45 seconds before this guy gets really nasty.

These agents sit in a call center with a headset and cannot easily hang up. I think if they determine the call isn’t going anywhere they find it easier and more entertaining to just get the called-party to hang up. It’s probably a game to them. So you can imagine this guy’s confusion when he starts swearing at the bot but she doesn’t hang up. But she doesn’t seem to get upset either. And then her daughter engages in the background. Who would go through so much trouble to mess with a telemarketer, right???

As jaded as I am to nasty telemarketers, this one shocked me. Who would talk to a stranger like this? How can anyone be so callous? You, as the listener to this call, know that the joke is really on the telemarketer. But the telemarketer thinks he’s talking to a human and we have to put a stop to this.

As we know, there’s no way to shut these guys down. The best we can do it intercept them with bots. In many cases, I can do this automatically. Please see my web site for information about landline, mobile, and Google Voice protection. Not only can I protect YOUR phones, but the more time the bots spend with them, the less time they have to speak with potential victims of their scams. Only $6/year gives you unlimited use of the bots, but you are potentially helping to protect other high-risk victims by burning the time of losers like this one.
