Finally a way to ruin a telemarketers day

telemarketers

 

If you are like me, you have been waiting for a technology to payback those annoying telemarketers. Well kids, it has arrived.

Jolly Roger Telephone Co. is an automated system that talks to telemarketers for you.

When a telemarketer calls, you can conference in Jolly Roger’s human sounding prerecorded guy and have it interact with the telemarketer on your behalf until the telemarketer gets frustrated and ends the call.

Jolly Roger Telephone Co. developer Roger Anderson created the system to reduce the number of telemarketers calling his house and later shared his invention with the world.

When you get a call from a telemarketer and they ask something like “Mr. Jones?”, say “Oh, you want Mr. Jones? Sure hang on – he’s right here…” then,

  1. Press “add call”
  2. Dial the robot at 214-666-4321. While you’re dialing, keep chatting into your phone like you’re trying to get Mr. Jones (“yeah – phone for you”, “okay, he’s coming hang on…”, etc)
  3. Press “Add call” or “Merge call” or “Conference” or whatever will add the robot to the conversation.
  4. MUTE YOURSELF so your background noise doesn’t affect the conversation.
  5. Listen to the call, and hang up when the telemarketer hangs up.

Listen to it in action!
