A California-based man, Roger Anderson, has been using a ChatGPT bot and a voice cloner to keep telemarketing scammers on line for long. With this, the owner of Jolly Roger Telephone Company wastes their time and costs money, according to a report published by The Wall Street Journal.
However, Anderson doesn't do this for his own entertainment. The reports stated that regular people use his system of ChatGPT bot and voice cloner for a reasonable fee. He charges a $25-per-year subscription for it.
After taking the subscription, the user can enable the call-forwarding option to a unique number created for your account, and then the ChatGPT bots can handle your robocalls.
In addition, the user can also use the ‘merge’ feature to allow a conference call after which you can discreetly listen to the conversation. There are multiple voices and bot personalities available in the feature which you can try accordingly.
When you get the call, the callers cannot directly talk to ChatGPT, but the user can use the bot to analyze what the caller is talking about, The Wall Street Journal reported.
It produces a human-like sound, however, the phrases or dialogues can be repetitive or unnatural which breaks the illusion. It is crucial to note that the ChatGPT bot and voice cloner work well to keep a scammer on like for around 15 minutes. Especially, it can help you in the case of credit card scams.
Before Jolly Roger, a chatbot named Lenny has also been giving robocallers their comeuppance since 2008, the report added. But Lenny has not been proven much effective.
The Journal also noted that auto-dialers can make about 100 calls per second and in case of a human response, the telemarketer get on the line. On the other hand, Lenny can't do this, it simply forward or merge calls.
