Fake Robocalls

Apparently, the Republican National Campaign Committee RNCC has sponsored a barrage of robotic telephone calls to Democratic voters. These lengthy calls leave the initial impression that they are being made on behalf of Francine Busby, but at the end they reverse course and endorse the Republican candidate, Brian Bilbray.

Heres where it goes beyond clever, onward to diabolical: If the target hangs up, the program calls back. Over and over and over. The re-dials reportedly run upwards of 14 times. Worse, the phone rings early in the morning or very late at night, maximizing the anger generated by what appears to be a Democratic robocaller run amok. Only occasionally does a victim sit around to listen to the entire call, realizing that they’ve been played for a fool.
