Remember the Do Not Call List that never worked? Well, here comes something new that is supposed to be a lot more effective.
A company called DoNotPay just released a new product called Robo Revenge to help you trap robocallers and instantly sue them.
If you sign up, they give you a burner credit card. The next time you get an unsolicited call, you pretend you’re interested and use the burner card to “pay.” That charge gives Robo Revenge a way to trace who’s behind the call.
THEN they’ll instantly sue that person on your behalf, for up to $3,000 per call under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The only downside is that it will only work for companies based in the U.S., not the scam calls from other countries.
Still, it seems like a better idea than just hanging up on the scammer.
