    The devil works hard, but John Oliver works harder

  • Tim Menke  (8 hours ago))

    The devil does not exist. People do this shit, not an imaginary bad guy.

    It's so juvenile but it makes me laugh every time. MAKING TROUBLE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT

    "you like that business daddy? Johnny's acting up again" lmfao

    I get IRS calls... and I'm in Canada

    I didnt get a robocaller but i get people calling me telling me theyre gonna report me to the police and have me arrested. 🤣 i ask them to please do it so that i would finally get the details of my arrest without having to disclose my ss number

    I get Mandarin language scam calls... and I'm in Canada.I hit the button to reach a live agent and cuss them out. Sadly it's in English as my Chinese ability is pretty minimal.

    It worked! 11 days after this video was originally posted and AT&T and Comcast have announced caller authentication programs being released.

  • They now offer numbers you can dile to block most robocalls.

    +Jasper Martin The problem is they couldn't resolve it without breaking where it was used correctly. If you get a call from Wells Fargo that comes up 'Wells Fargo' that is a spoof. It is actually coming from some computer for some call center that Wells Fargo hired to call on their behalf.

    John truly is Chaotic Good and I love it!!

    The 4th Law of robotics: No robot shall be able to say, type, transmit or render in any other way the phrase "✅ I'm not a robot."

  • Rafael Giusti  (Apr 6, 2019))

    Second Law says that a robot must obey orders, so just order them to tell you whether they are a robot or not.

    No one:Robo calls: *Ring ring motherf*cker*

    Ajit Pai: "Excuse me, gentlemen, it appears that I may have won a cruise" Let's be honest, folks. The only cruise offers he gets are from ISP lobbyists.

  • HappyAgony  (May 13, 2019))

    Didnt this guy almost destroy the internet with that ISP bullshittery? Now hes behind Robocalls too?? Why the fuck hasnt the internet collectively smited this guy out of existence yet hes being an absolute cunt.

  • Hubert Fiset-Renaud  (May 1, 2019))

    Isp as in artillery only?

  • Lutz Herting  (May 2, 2019))

    Meanwhile, in Germany, we had a different approach to that problem:- Step 1 : Making that Robocall bullshit illegal in the first place- Step 2 : Not thinking about it anymore

  • Jonathan Schaffer  (6 hours ago))

    Lutz Herting Hi, this is an American citizen. Can I come over? This is not a robocall

  • Tiny Bubble  (1 day ago))

    Ah, I love Germany. I'm stuck in America but my German teacher always teaches us about Germany (almost like it's part of her job).
