Doc Compton - Scambaiter
For years, as the "Turning Robocalls Into Cash" kit author and creator, I (Doc Compton) have been known for teaching consumers around the country how to stop robocalls by making illegal robocallers pay $500-$3000/per call, and up to $1500/text. But what many don't know is that I've recently opened a channel on YouTube. The new RuckFobocalls channel is the product of my having been asked by thousands if I had a channel, and told by almost as many that I should have one.
One of the key elements of utilizing the "Turning Robocalls Into Cash" kit is understanding which calls are "cash calls", meaning calls that are potentially actionable, and "trash calls", meaning scammers and the like, that aren't actionable. While I couldn't make money off of the trash calls, I quickly realized that I could make pretty cool content out of them. For years, I've made audio and video recordings of myself, driving illegal robocallers and scammers crazy by playing dumb and asking ridiculous question after ridiculous question. Eventually, the person on the other end will completely lose it, and the hilarity ensues.
Unbeknownst to me, there was a growing collection of YouTubers out there who were doing what I've been doing for years, and racking up millions of views and subscribers! Having had measurable success with some of my own scambaiting videos on TikTok, I decided it was time to see if I couldn't enter the fray, and entertain even more people with the same kind of content on YouTube. So, in October of 2022, I created the "RuckFobocalls" YouTube channel, and the RuckFobocalls merchandise website! After just three months in existence, the channel has nearly 1200 followers, and continues to grow every day. I'm excited to see just how big it gets in 2023! Most of my content for the channel is user-submitted, so feel free to check out the channel's About page to learn how you can submit your own scam calls and emails, to let me have a crack at ruining a scammer's day!
So join me for LIVE SCAMBAITING, every M-F, from 2-4pm CST!
