Scammer Blaster

Today I got a strange automation call from Scammer Blaster. I can't tell if this is a legitimate call or if someone is just waiting 800 number minutes while people are listening to this message.

This is the message that was left on my voicemail. This message repeats itself until the voicemail system disconnects due to length:

Transcript

This is the transcript of the message from Apple's transcript service:

This is an important public service announcement.

There was a rise in scam calls impacting people around the world. Many of these scammers are directly funding terrorist organizations and in 2017 $16 billion were scammed from Americans. Much of this money is used to fund terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda and ISS to further hurt our neighbors around the world.

It is critical to report any phone calls from the scammers to the FCC or to the phone company of the scammer. You can use free carrier lookup tools to identify the carrier and then call or email the carrier so that the scammer's phone system is shut down. Most importantly if someone with a foreign accent claims to be the IRS, Social Security Administration office, Microsoft, Amazon, cash app or any other questionable source that generally doesn't call you immediately hang up the call and reported on our websites Scammer Blaster dot Com again that Scammer Blaster dot Com.

Knowledge is power, if everyone refuses to fall victim to these scams the scammer's revenue source will dry up and together we can get this problem significantly reduced.

Is it Real?

Scammer Blaster is a real site and they do good work to eliminate scam calls.

For a quick look, it’s a war-dialler system; an automated calling system, They have designed it to flood scammers with fake calls, tying up all the lines and preventing them making or receiving calls, hopefully stopping the scam. The technology is pretty simple, and if you deliberately hang up before it answers, it could be cheap to do. There are a couple of risks to this: It might be illegal. Doing this is the equivalent of a Denial of Service attack, and may well be illegal where you are. Getting involved might leave you open to prosecution, should the target report it. There is a risk you target an innocent party, Scammers change phone numbers fast, and spoof (fake) phone numbers, so you might target the wrong number. There’s also the problem with identifying a ‘scammer’. Look at online reviews. Otherwise legitimate companies get called a ‘scammer’ regularly by someone who is not happy with the service, or who does not understand how things like returns work. Targeting one of those legitimate companies would get you rightly sued for damages. Basically, it’s like any form of vigilante justice: their heart is in the right place, but they are going about it in a way that may cause more problems than it solves.

They are literally staffed by children. Not one volunteer appeared to be over the age of twelve. They are just as bad as the scammers. They have God complexes and will write you off if you so much as not acknowledge that they are Great People. The culture of that site is toxic, and now a corporation may have adolescent hackers go after me for being disappointed in them.
