I'm not sure when I started saying "Ugh, what?" whenever my phone rings, but I'm sure it was around the same time that people started to notice that about half of the calls they get are from telemarketers.
But while the ones who genuinely want to sell you stuff are annoying enough, nothing is as bad as the scammers. While they can be fun to mess with if you spot them, they're still an annoying interruption to our days and an infuriating reminder that someone out there is being swindled by them.
And while it's clear that one man on TikTok is getting as tired of these people as the rest of us, it looks like he's landed on a pretty effective method to get them off his back.
