Thank you Jim Browning for featuring the ScammerBlaster tool in a recent video!!
Who we are, what we do
We are a group of volunteers from around the world who break scammer’s phone systems. By sending a high volume of calls to their call centers the scammer cannot make or receive any more phone calls. This completely stops their operation dead in their tracks and runs up their phone bill hundreds of dollars per minute.
How we do it
Currently, we have 12 dedicated 64-core servers using specialized software to do the task. By entering in a simple command we can attack a phone system with as much as 3,600 phone calls per second. YES! PER SECOND!
Please see our article “Does Call Flooding REALLY Hurt Scammers?” Before you say “Well, yeah, DUH!”, the REAL answer may surprise you.
What we aren’t
We are not “internet vigilantes”. We take the growing problem of scam activity quite seriously. We are a registered and licensed corporation with income, expenditures, bank account, employees, attorney, etc. Our systems are set up to do what agencies cannot do…. STOP SCAMMERS DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS.
Can I also break a scammer’s phone system?
Absolutely! While you may not be able to flood their system with calls there is a more effective approach to the matter. You can break any scammer’s phone system in an hour or so with just 5 minutes of your time. REPORT THEM to their carrier!
- Make sure the phone number works.
- Look up the scammer’s phone company.
- Send an email to the abuse dept of the scammer’s phone company.
For looking up the scammer’s carrier and getting the abuse dept email read my article “The Ultimate Method of Scammer PayBack“.
Can I join the team?
In a way you can! Use the “Report a Scammer” tool to submit phone numbers to us. We will investigate the matter and go from there.
Stay tuned for more details!
USTELECOM ON A WITCH HUNT TO SHUT SCAMMERBLASTER DOWN, AND WILL PROBABLY SUCCEED
David Frankel from USTelecom is abusing authority given by the FCC, by leading a charge to get us shut down using fear and intimidation tactics to do so.
David Frankel (phone number 408-884-1445) is a member of USTelecom’s “Industry Traceback Group” (ITG). The ITG’s SOLE purpose is to stop illegal robocalling. However, we also have a similar interest in stopping such and are apparently viewed as a threat to their operation.
The FCC has instituted very specific guidelines as to how ITG is to deal with illegal robocalling in USTELECOM’S INDUSTRY TRACEBACK GROUP Policies and Procedures and these procedures are being violated.
USTelecom’s Traceback Group even violates it’s own “Policies and Procedures“, as we will explain in due time.
For example, if ITG has concerns, these concerns are to be addressed IN WRITING to the appropriate telecom involved in passing the suspected illegal traffic, using a very specific form and wording to approach the matter in a professional manner. Instead, ITG has decided to abuse the authority awarded to them by the FCC by going after my providers with targeted harassment for 6 months now in an effort to get our operation dismantled, and they most definitely have the power to do so.
If this abusive overreach of their power does not stop, we WILL be filing a complaint with the FCC and furnish a mountain of evidence of our claims. If necessary, we will form a class-action suit against the FCC to have the FCC revoke their contract with USTelecom.
Other legitimate agencies are also targeted with similar fear and intimidation tactics, establishing a clear pattern of abuse of authority. Because of this, we are building our own consortium joint effort to stop this pattern of abusive overreach.
Help us fight scam and illegal robocallers by reporting the details to us. Unlike USTelecom, which shuts down about 200 robocallers per month, we successfully shut down 200 robocallers AND scammers (combined) per day. Clearly we are viewed as a threat to their operation and they want me gone!
A few noteworthy side-points:
USTelecom supposedly operates at the address of 601 New Jersey Ave, NW Suite 600, Washington, DC 20001. We are investigating this to see if this is actually accurate.
David Frankel easily side-steps scrutiny by USTelecom by harassing other telecoms from a zipdx.com email account, which is in no way affiliated with USTelecom or the Traceback Group. Using a personal email account to harass and intimidate telecoms is NOT what the FCC has specified ITG to do.
We have audio recordings of David Frankel screaming and yelling. This very angry and non professional behavior is not likely what the FCC had in mind when giving ITG the power they have.
…….Much more to come! Stay tuned.
SCAMMER SUPPORTING WALL OF SHAME:
ONVOY/INTELEQUENT (the largest telecom used by scammers by a margin of over 75%) refuses to shut down certain scammers:
860-200-1281 (“Cash App” support impostors – cashapphelps.net)
808-437-7687 (“PayPal” support impostors)
808-437-7720 (“Amazon” support impostors)
850-757-4564 (“Amazon” support impostors)
850-757-4568 (“Amazon” support impostors)
Not only do we have recordings of the scammer admitting to being a scammer, but we have been approached by a victim who lost all her money in her Cash App account AFTER we repeatedly notified Onvoy about these scammers. This is unacceptable that the scammer’s phones STILL remain active and they are liable to victims in a court of law.
As of January 30th, 2020, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is now suing phone carriers for supplying phone services to scammers. Check out this article: Justice Dept Sues Telecoms
As of March 27th, 2020, the Department of Justic (DOJ) is now also going after Comet Media, BlueTone Communications and J2 (also known as TimeShift (Timeshift.net)), and others, for knowingly supplying phone services to scammers: Justice Dept Warns 9 Telecoms

24 Hour Blasting
Our systems run non-stop. Scammers don't sleep, neither do we! Report a number to us and we will burn their phone system to the ground.
We are constantly working to refine and improve our tactics. We will not stop until we are 100% refined.
We monitor numerous websites where scammer numbers are posted. Our tools do a an auto-reverse look-up to identify the carrier. The carrier is notified about the scammer via email and the carrier typically shuts down the phone number within a few hours!
Flooding their Lines
Some carriers support scam activity and do not close a scammer's phone system. We go to step 2 of our efforts, which is to initiate so many calls to the scammer they cannot make or receive phone calls. Additionally, their phone bill gets out of control and ultimately brings money back into the U.S. economy.
