The Telecrapper 2000

By on September 11, 2005

Things that renew my faith in humanity: Compassion, Eternal Hope, and now, the Telecrapper 2000:

The Telecrapper 2000 (TC2K) is a computerized system designed to both intercept incoming Telemarketing calls on the first ring, and then carry on a virtual conversation with the telemarketer.

[…]

Perhaps best of all, the “virtual” conversation between the TC2K and the telemarketer is recorded for the user to enjoy and share with his friends and other TC2K users. We hope to have a forum in the near future to discuss and trade TC2K conversations. It is sure to be very entertaining.

[…]

Only the TC2K has the capability to turn the tables on the telemarketing industry. With similar computer technology on OUR side, we can reduce the productivity of the telemarketers and make the entire enterprise less attractive. The more TC2K devices in use, the less productive every telemarketer becomes.

And so goes the eternal struggle against all that ticks us off.

Make sure that you check out the sample calls, many of which are pretty hilarious.

  1. That is awesome!

    Example five is downright hilarious. Sends the tele-marketer on a little trip to dementia-ville.

    It’s a bit ironic though that when I opened the linked site I got a popup window telling me “Warning: We have detected that your PC may be infected with dangerous SpyWare and AdWare!” I use a Mac. But wouldn’t you expect that an outfit that helps you spoof tele-marketers would stay away from ads like that.
