Jolly Roger bot protects Medicare from a “Durable Medical Equipment” scam

Hello all! I have posted some of these "Durable Medical Equipment" scam calls before. As I captioned this call, I researched DME fraud a little more. It's tough because, unlike most scams, it does not rip off the called party. They just use you and your pain to bill a third party. They may or may not send you the equipment. But it's "free stuff for you" so it sounds enticing.

Anyway, this is a bot named "William Kidd" who handles this call. Notice how William Kidd does an EXCELLENT job enticing the telemarketer at the beginning, which makes it hard for her to release the call. It goes on for ten minutes and it is very satisfying to hear how confused she gets at the end. Keep in mind that this woman might be a very nice person and completely unaware that her employer is running an elaborate DME scam.

As you know, our mission at The Jolly Roger Telephone Company is to protect you and the telecommunications network from telemarketing scams. But we are proud of the social benefit as we protect the elderly, and in this example, Uncle Sam as well. Thank you everyone for helping to spread the word. Remember that when you use Jolly Roger Telephone bots, you are helping everyone else "downstream" from you since the telemarketer will not have time to call the next person.

Thank you for listening!

    Keep in mind, that $23 trillion will NEVER be repaid. Ever.
    Until the next country makes a competition of it, the US is, ultimately, bankrupt but no one cares.
    When another country makes a competition of it, the US will HAVE to pay up, in some way.
    Also, Jolly Roger phone thing is very funny…
    When people get the very same calls, they only want to hang up quick.
    But with auto answer, millions “tune in” on YouTube….
    Humanity is crazy.

  4. I would feel sorry for her . . . IF she had enough common sense to google her damn job. “Pain Relief Center?” She never thought to Google that generic name to see if it’s legitimate?

    I always do Google background checks on people and businesses who I have interviews with whom I think are fishy – saved me from accepting one job interview. (The feds shut it down a few years later.)

  5. When I get calls from Indians asking to speak to the Manager, I tell them that they have called the sales department and would they like me to give them the correct number? If they want it I give the Bot number. If not they just hang up.

  6. They have their own doctors who prescribe medical equipment over the phone. Then they fill it with medicare
