ChatGPT: A Brilliant Tool for Outsmarting Telemarketers and Scammers
In the battle against annoying telemarketing scams, software developer Roger Anderson has taken a unique approach. He has equipped his robotic voice service, Jolly Roger Telephone, with OpenAI’s powerful GPT-4 large language model to engage scammers in ridiculous conversations and waste their time. This innovative solution has garnered attention and proved to be remarkably effective.
Jolly Roger Telephone offers AI personalities that interact with scammers, leading to amusing and frustrating exchanges. The Wall Street Journal recently reported on an engagement where a telemarketer, claiming to be from Bank of America, encountered Whitey Whitebeard, one of the AI personalities. Whitey’s habit of speaking in circles eventually exhausted the scammer, who hung up about six minutes into the call.
