Last year my father called me in a panic! His grandson, my son, had just called him. He was in jail and needed $2,000 immediately to get out.
Now I was in a panic! I tried to get ahold of him on his phone. But it rang, and rang, and rang again. Then I heard a voice on the other end of the line. “Hi dad! What's up? I’m at Starbucks drinking an ice-latte.”
My father had almost become the next victim of the “grandparent” phone scam!
Realizing this I quickly put together a team including a former AT&T Bell Labs design engineer with 30 years of telecom industry experience to build a product to silence robocalls and protect parents from phone scams.
Together we built Call Silencer, a consumer device that silences robocalls on landline phones, is 100 times more effective than current solutions, and will protect your parents from phone scams.
It takes a unique team of individuals with disparate talents to bring such a solution to market.
