Hello, my name is Alex and i've been in the telecomunication area for some time now. Lately i've been attacked with a TON of spam calls due to a registration where i've used my phone number and it got leaked.
As such, i looked all over to find an app or a tool to help me protect against all the spam and i couldn't find anything that can really help not just block but also discourage them to call again.
Now to clarify a bit, i have with a friend a small telecom business, from which we have all the tools, access and partners to cover all the telecom part of the project, what we are missing is developers for Android, iOS and Web development.
The idea is this, an app for iOS and Android and a Web based platform that will provide, but not limited to, the following:
- Numbers and ranges of numbers that you consider spam will get redirected towards numbers with agents or an IVR on the other side that will talk with the scammers and discorage them from calling again. Either way they won't be calling you anymore.
- SMS from said numbers and ranges of numbers will get redirected to us.
- The option to use one of our numbers to mask your personal one. Basically when you register somewhere where you don't trust the website/platform you can set up a number from our list and chose that from that number everything ( SMS and calls) will get redirected towards your personal one. Advantages, firstly in case of spam you de-activate the link between our number and yours and it's done, we will handle it from there. The other is that we will create everything in such a manner to respect your privacy, secure it and make sure that when you delete your number from our database, it will trully be deleted respecting your privacy, which is the whole ideea of the project.
- We will also add these features for the classic unknown numbers or from certain countries if that is what you want.
I've been scammed and called from random numbers, you too, now it's the time to scam the scammer.
We have everything on the telecom side to cover all the countries in the world, and that's the hard part !
Ah, and the good part? everything will be free to use. Getting all the calls from the spammers should generate the income we need to keep the servers alive and maintain the ownership over the numbers we provide for everyone.
