With scam callers as active as ever and taking advantage of gullible people even in the middle of a pandemic. In order to stay safe from these disturbing calls, many phone users resort to blocking apps that help filter such numbers, but not this one TikTok user who decided to beat them at their own game.
TikTok creator, Roy Baker, took matters into his own hands when he received a call from a “Spam Risk” number from Mosier, Oregon. He also refers to them as potential scammers.
Baker answers the phone with his booming voice, acting as if he is a recorded greeting for the CIA:
“Hello. Thank you for calling the CIA. You’ve reached our Scam and Fraud Division. All of our agents are currently assisting other callers.”
“To further assist you, please hold while we download your incoming and outgoing call logs to be analysed against our database of known scam and fraud operations.”
“An agent will be with you shortly.”
The caller on the other end of the line quickly hung up the phone. To which Baker said: “That’s what I thought.”
The short video clip shared on Roy’s TikTok account generated hype on social media as it quickly gained over 10 million views and many people asked for a downloadable version for their use too.
Shared on YouTube and other digital platforms too, the clip has been garnering an overwhelming response. While many are commending his voice, others are appreciating his genius idea.
“His voice is directly from heaven,” one commenter said.
While another responded: “Legend! Not all heroes wear capes!”
Yet another TikTok user wrote: “I need this as my voicemail! Them darn auto warranty ppl won’t stop!”
A user commented, “His voice is made of liquid gold.”
Another wrote, “Morgan Freeman should be terrified of you stealing his narration work.”
Baker, who also manages the R. B. Design and Decor Etsy store, often uses the hashtag #myroyvoice on his videos. In addition to showing off his creative ways to deal with scammers, Baker has made at least one other video poking fun at the “extended warranty” spam calls.
