Pranking Solicitors Into Endless Telemarketing Loop

Creative Bastard blogger set up an extension on his phone line to route telemarketers to. It plays a loop of his voice being “highly interested” in the rep’s offer, with the goal being to keep the t-marketer on the line as long as possible.

We suggest Creative Bastard puts a longer space between his looped comments. He says this is but the first, he’s going to set the machine up and make a podcast of the best ones “over a fortnight.” We can’t wait!

Free Phone!” [Creative Bastard] (Thanks to Wade!)

UPDATE: The file’s creator has revealed the phone call was entirely simulated. The technology is real but the recording is a joke.
