I would pay to hear you troll a telemarketer.


Dead serious.

I generally do the security guys, a while back I downloaded an MP3 of the Ghostbusters theme to play when I ask them about ghosts. The credit card guys hang up as soon as they realize they aren't getting your credit card info.

While I would prefer for them to stop calling, I got the idea to mess with them from Tom Mabe, check out his stuff, I'd never be able to beat something like this :

Yeah, that's Tom Mabe. I've watched that about a dozen times.

I have a feeling these telemarketing calls are payback for my prank calls.

I used to call this mexican family and tell them that they were being deported.

My son-in-law is notorious for playing them.  A couple of things that he does,
  • Play along and act interested, but when it comes time to pay, say that you only deal in cash and they must be able to accept cash from you for their product (which it is not possible for them to do over the phone).
  • Once they've identified themselves, indicate that you are detective (give a name) and that they have called a crime scene.  Keep it going by asking for their complete identification and requesting them to come in for questioning.

Beware: The misguided mignons of political correctness abound at SECTALK!
