May I please have invites back to the appropriate Bob rooms. As per the "talk.bobrtc.tel is down" thread, I also have no access to modops, support or anything else for that matter after having recently sorted migration out and accepting multiple invites to rooms from AussieScamBuster who I cannot get hold of ATM via Discord. Can I too be let back in from the cold? Cheers

I understand the chat rooms have been under attack, but all the rooms seem to be gone. Evidently they are all invite only now? Let me in, it's cold out here. I created my own room, Scambaiting After Dark, but it got shut down right away. It's unclear if that is not allowed, or if I just got caught in the crossfire...

When I view call recordings, it first appears to work fine. However, when I click on load more it loads the same recordings which were already on the list, plus one older. So in order to view a super old recording I would have to click load more many times, which also loads more recordings into my RAM making it impossible to load to many pages as my RAM would max out. Am I the only one experiencing this issue?

I was trying to go to the chat system on bobrtc to talk about the moshpit in the moshpit chat when it signed me out for "security reasons". I tried signing in, and my password doesn't work. Did a mod ban me from the chat? Just wondering. Thanks.

Hi and thanks to the developers and admins for this fun website. I figured the Wiki might be a better place to catalog the spam/scam websites that I've been posting here, so I tried to log in or register. Using Firefox 78 on linux, turned off adblock extensions. The CAPTCHA image doesn't load for me, and the audio alternative doesn't seem to work either.

Calling https://bobrtc.tel/phonebook/dial/16033262233 winds up connecting into the Moshpit.

The moshpit has an echo currently and nobody is in it besides a few scammers, me, and the dude with the echo. I would like to request a flush for the moshpit so it may get rid of the echo, since its been there for a while now. Thank you

We're keeping a list of student loan numbers we keep seeing calling the BobRTC phone switches. The biggest caller is the Student Loan Defense Center, which has the "Andrew Vaughn" voicemails. We also have a collecting going of some other student loan scams that are operating on Toll-Free numbers. During the whole time of Operation Spring Break all toll calls to Student Loan are FREE.   You can earn XP and call tokens by calling these non-toll-free numbers so it pays to scambait it. Check our wiki page ( https://wiki.bobrtc.tel/projects:operation_spring_break )

Here's my idea, we have a menu that shows the current best infinite hold numbers to farm XP. This is different from searching by XP because when you search by XP because the numbers you'd find there are similar to 24/7 numbers, and/or most of them don't work. Maybe have the numbers get rated by users with 10k+ XP because in order to get to 10k XP, farming infinite holds is the only option. I'm thinking it would be a drop-down menu with links to the current top-rated XP farming numbers, which you could call, and it would automatically adjust to the optimal settings (Digit Wizard all setup, microphone and volume muted). This would be great because the current infinite hold numbers are constantly changing, so it would save a lot of time searching all around for a good one. Thank you for taking the time to go through this; I spent a good while writing this up

In a flurry of court filings, the Federal Trade Comission told a Michigan federal judge that six groups of companies and individuals have agreed to pay up to $110 million to settle claims they tricked millions of Americans into donating to charities that failed to provide the services they promised. The FTC, along with 46 agencies from 38 states and Washington, D.C., sued Michigan-based Associated Community Services Inc., Directele Inc., their sister companies and eight individuals who operate them in January, accusing them of soliciting donations for fraudulent charities since at least 2008 by making 1.3 billion calls to more than 67 million telephone numbers in the United States. The lawsuit claims that the calls targeted older adults and misled them into believing the majority of their donations would go to charities supporting breast cancer patients, the families of children with cancer, homeless veterans, fire victims, children with autism and other causes. These same calls used prerecorded soundboards which targeted a large portion of the population and reach a significant number of potential victims. ACS and its sister companies were the subject of 20 prior law enforcement actions for their fundraising practices, and it closed its doors in late 2019, according to the FTC. But ACS' managers moved on to Directele and its sister companies where they continued the deceptive fundraising scheme, the suit alleges. Most of Directele's soundboard calls originated from call centers in the Philippines and India, according to the FTC.

My feature request is a reddit style "upvote/downvote" system that would show how many people upvote and downvote your post, like how reddit and most other forums work. This would allow easier interaction if, say you were reporting a bug, someone else had the same bug but that person doesn't yet have enough xp to reply to the thread so they can't do anything to confirm they had it too. But with upvotes, that person could upvote the post and y'all could know "okay, multiple people have had this issue".

Most of us have seen the Mark Rober video and Jim Browning video of money mules connected with the refund and SSA scams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrKW58MS12g and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xvjjpzyiig4 But it looks like the Canadian mounties have also been on this as well as early as last year... most of us might have missed this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2QZT89aRCs What has been so frustrating about the refund and SSA scams is that local and state authorities have shown very little interest in pursuing these scams mainly because they believe that there aren't any actors based inside the USA that they can go after.    After all, going after foreign actors is a job for a constellation of Federal agencies who aren't motivated or move as slow as molasses. Now that we're aware that these scams heavily rely on money mules for high dollar amount transactions, particularly those more than $5,000 which pose problems---as buying that much in gift cards raises anti-fraud alarms at stores, and with credit card companies and banks---scammers have to rely on physical cash delivered to money mules and various methods like conversion to BitCoin at multiple ATMs in order to get the money back to India. It has been a big sticking point with me that scambaiters, particularly younger ones who are far more interested in tech support popup scams want to spend little time on SSA scams, even though the very-related Refund scam involves a Teamviewer/Anydesk remote connection and long times on the phone. We should be spending as much time as we can on SSA and Refund scams and coming up with more ways to fish information out of these scammers.   Some of us have gotten very good at phishing their IP addresses in India out.  We should be doing more of that and posting the information (doesn't matter if it's here or elsewhere). Now that we have some wonderful YouTube videos that describe what these scams entail in graphic detail, we should also be sharing this around more often not just amongst friends/family, but also to local media to make them understand what this is, what's at stake. The only way to eradicate this scam is with information--that reduces the number of available marks to be scammed. At BobRTC we have worked with partners to deliver a very reliable daily feed of SSA scam call center inbound numbers and we have passed these along to Federal authorities.   This happens EVERY time an SSA number is posted to our website--we notify the host carrier immediately as well as deliver this data to Federal authorities. Let's spend more time scambaiting SSA.  Keep the agents on the phone, keep them talking, and don't get frustrated that it's the same old script over and over.   The time we are spending with that Indian reading his script over the phone is time he is not spending talking to a mark. Let's do this.

I just got off a Scambaiting call, and this scammers first port of call was Control Panel, Notification Area Icons, and low and behold guess whats there VBoxTray.exe Now bearing in mind that both Virtual Box Tasks were ended via Task Manager prior to the call commencing, that bl**dy Notification Icon won't budge even after uninstalling Guest Additions, I've Scoured the Registry looking for the application name and removed all instances from Run (Vaues), also searched for 'Hide Icon and Notifications' also 'Notifications' with the hope of hunting this down, all to no avail that little sh&t just won't die. Anyone have any ideas on removing this little devil? I did find a bat file on github that looked promising, however, after running completed successfully, yep you guessed it it's still there and i'm sure I heard it laughing at me. all suggestions welcome. TIA

Tonight a scammer escaped by requiring user validation with an asterisk (e.g. 5*9). Is it possible that the Digital Wizard could deal with this validation by using an escape character like the good ol backslash (e.g. 5\*9)?

Just so it's on the record, the Department of Education's official website explicitly says never to give your FSA ID to anyone (see https://blog.ed.gov/2017/06/9-myths-about-the-fsa-id-2/ ). So when the Student Loan scammers pretend that giving them your username and password is totally normal, this is a lie.
