Scammers Get Scammed

So there is a little known scam whereby call centers in foreign countries call random people in the USA, leave a message stating that they are the IRS and demand that they call them back or face jail.

So an anonymous tech vigilante has set himself on a quest to prevent these scammers from working.
He wrote a bot(-net) that will call the scammers' phone lines a bazillion times from different numbers, thus preventing them from receiving any real calls.


The scammer has started a patreon fund so that he can be helped with the costs involved. No, this is not a scam!

All of his videos for the scammers -

This scam has already come to the attention of the police;

Enjoy and stay safe ;-)
