We’ve talked quite a bit about telephone fraud on our blog — those fake Microsoft tech support guyswho try to scare you with malware into paying for their service, or the fake cops who say your kid is in trouble. Everybody hates them, regardless of whether they ever fell for the scam. At the 35C3 hacker congress, I happened to be at a talk that mentioned an amazing solution to all those phone scam problems.

Here’s a sample call to Lenny:
