Reddit is fighting back (bad words are used by some people in this community – be warned) against the telemarketers that call your house – usually at dinner – and tell you that “this is the second warning that your autos warranty is about to expire”. Where you promptly sigh and then hang up the phone.
The online community at reddit has discovered and published their phone numbers, addresses and instructions on how to fill their phone mailboxes with messages. All this because they are annoyed.
There is definitely a higher percentage of technically able people on reddit that can do all this and more with automation and by using toll free numbers of the business they are driving up the costs.
The telemarketers can change their number, maybe even their address – and they probably will. But they have to have an incoming phone number, their job is to work over the phone selling extended warranties on vehicles (which may or may not be actually backed). So it is easy to predict that will be discovered and this will all repeat itself eventually.
Mob justice isn’t really the answer, but it’s nice to see a company get a taste of its own medicine now and then.
