    Meanwhile, in Germany, we had a different approach to that problem:
    - Step 1 : Making that Robocall bullshit illegal in the first place
    - Step 2 : Not thinking about it anymore

    This really happened:
    I got a call from a guy with a heavy accent, saying I have won a lot of money.
    I said well that's FANTASTIC!!! How do I get it???
    He asked whether I would like it to be sent to my bank account.
    I said no, I would prefer a check, as I can't have a bank account.
    He said but he needed the bank account information.
    I said well AGAIN... I can NOT have a bank account.
    He asked why?
    I said because I just got released from prison since I murdered someone years ago.
    He hung up 🤣

    "Hey Tom, could we set up robocalling to spam the fcc? We have a 5000$ budget.
    - It would take 15min and 10$ a month.
    - f**k, what are we to do with the rest of the money, build a giant finger to give them?"

    Unfortunately as an underemployed person, I can't afford to ignore any call, lest I get left behind at that point by a potential employer. I suspect many people are in the same position.
