Getting even with an IRS phone scammer (you'll love this!)

posted by Mark Robertson - 

Phone scams may be getting more and more clever by the day, but one office full of phony IRS agents made a dumb move when they called a computer programmer who happens to specialize in scam prevention. The programmer operates an anti-scam operation called Project Mayhem and he received a voicemail from someone claiming to be an IRS employee. When he called them back and was asked to pay a massive fine for unclear reasons, he knew immediately that he was being had — and came up with a genius way to pull the plug on them. He wrote a script that called each of their phones 28 times per second with an automated message, tying up their lines and making it impossible to reach other potential victims
