10 posts in this topic

Just found out about this spam reporting address that takes the email you fwd to them and then uses and AI bot to reply and engage the spammer for as long as possible wasting their time.

Just got a juicy phishing spam today from .ng pretending to be Chase which will be my first submission. ;)

There is also a bot to answer scam phone calls

A program is available for VOIP phones but I think it is for Linux?

Where did Lenny find a rotary phone? I haven't seen one in years.

But these scammers are making me consider dumping the land line phone,  just nuisance calls

Yea, I know. I am amazed at the number of non-fax calls my fax land line gets.  Even my cell gets 2-3 robo calls a month.  In the U.S. they shouldn't call cell numbers, but what makes anyone think a phone scammer would follow the law?

I notice Lenny's phone is older that the ebay model.  A black version would make a good stage prop.

When I bothered with Fax I used a Internet fax provider. If you search ebay you will probably find one cheap and nice (Cold War Red Phones )

The pictured phone wouldn't do me much good. For some obscure reason that's buried in the mists of history, rotary dial phones here in New Zealand ended up with the digits 1-9 backwards compared to the rest of the world.

??? Does reversed rotary dial have anything to do with the coriolis effect in the southern hemisphere :D

We are sensible even driving cars on the left, even the water going down the sink plug hole goes clockwise
The theory is 000 was is the emergency number and wanted the zero last number to stop children dialing it when playing with phone

Now that is a roundabout!  Reminds me of a place in Minneapolis Minnesota, call Seven Corners; Seven major roads intersecting at grade.  Back in the day they tried lights, painted lane, signs, again and again.  Finely gave up posting big flashing sings "DANGER Uncontrolled Intersection" and covered all the lane markings.  It worked. Scared the pee wad out of everyone and accidents went down.
