The Robo Revenge app automates legal action against frequent robocallers
It gives users a fake credit card to create a transaction record with spammers
Once the transaction is logged, Robo Revenge can serve legal notices
Subsequent spam calls can lead to fines of up to $3,000 per call
Exacting revenge on companies who smother you in robocalls could be as easy as downloading an app.
DoNotPay, a company that offers a legal service chatbot, has rolled out an adjacent tool called Robo Revenge that helps automate the process of suing companies who proliferate spammy calls.
According to a report from Motherboard, the service, which can currently be used on DoNotPay's website and through its free app, works by first putting one's number on the national Do Not Call Registry which then outlaws any companies from pestering them with high call volumes.
