Programmer Writes Script That Calls Back Phone Scammers 28 Times Per Second
When a security developer was recently contacted by an IRS Phone Scammer he decided to do more than simply ignore their call. He wanted to shut them down and prevent them from scamming other innocent people.
To combat their operation he wrote a script that called their phone number 28 times per second, overwhelming their phone lines and operators. He recently made a compilation of the frustrated operators’ reactions and launched ‘Project Mayhem‘ to continue his fight against these unscrupulous scammers.
