HOW TO Build Your Own “Telecrapper”

Tc2Kpic Are you tired of answering the phone only to find a telemarketer on the other end and wish you could make them as angry as you feel? Now you can build your own answering system that carries on a virtual conversation with the telemarketer and drives them nuts.

The site also features phone calls the device has carried out with telemarketers. Thanks Jay! Link.
