The war on phone spam continues! Call Trapper, which can reduce phone and fax spam up to 90%, is essentially our Call Blocker on auto-pilot. Available on a per DID Number basis, Call Trapper conducts an instant risk assessment on the Caller ID of an inbound call, using various sources to check for patterns of scams, fraud, telemarketing, and other general annoyances, intelligently rating the call as either not (yet) spam, suspected spam or known spam.
By default, the trap literally shuts on known spammers; playing a number not in service message then hanging up. Suspected spammers are challenged by a random captcha, to verify they are at least human before allowing to pass, or the trap shuts on those idiots too, permanently. Normal callers are allowed to pass unhindered, completely unaware their call just went through the Call Trapper! Victory is ours!
Of course, if a spammer wises up and uses a brand new phone number, there won't be any history associated with it. So, our trusty old Call Blocker will still be available in your arsenal, comrade.
