Why all the CRA scam calls stopped. Use to look forward to talking to someone during the pandemic.

watching the occasional youtube video of people who intentionally led scam callers, pretending to obey them while simultaneously hacking/gaining root / admin access to their computers and then messing everything up.

There was this one "pranking the scam caller" video where the woman making the call (to a fake CRA center) was a radio show host and actually tried to seduce (successfully) the caller, who had a thick Indian accent and all -- and then she seduced (also successfully) the guy who interrupted the first guy.

That one was funny, lemme see if I can find it...

Found it! it's on youtube, titled "CRA Scammer gets SEDUCED by RADIO HOST!" uploaded by an account called "DEYO"

Yes, you can make it difficult for them. Keep them talking, for as long as possible. Waste their time and money. I did this once with a couple of door-stepping Moonies (remember them?). Just kept them talking, and talking, and talking. They didn't know how to react. Just ran away and we never saw them again!

That people answer phone calls from numbers they don't know.
EVERY single phone made since the days of rotary dialers has call display. All cell phones have call display since 1997.
