    I was browsing YouTube and stumbled upon something awesome.

    This guy called a scammers number to verify someone was trying to scam him, and once he fpou d out they were really a scam, he proceeded to write a computer program that calls there number 28 times a second. Thus, making it impossible to call or except any calls to or from anyone. I then found out there are large communitys of people that revers prank the scammers. On guy bricked all the scammers computers through some clever trickery.

    Be for-warned that some some cussing is involved near the ends of both vids well the scammers freak out. Anyway I plan to use a website like www.prankdial.com to get back at some of these people toying with those with less knowledge of computers. So maybe next time you get a fake virus pop up. Maybe save the phone number and help cut back on these scammers.

    Skimmed through the important parts of the second video

    Was pretty funny, but kinda sad when he said "I just want to provide for my family". But hey, try getting an actual job xD

    Not sad at all. If your job relies on screwing other people over you shouldn't be surprised when someone does the same to you.

    I know, just got a tad bit emotional towards the end, I'm a sucker for that kind of thing
    But overall yes, go get a better job that doesnt involve messing with people
