Lol. If this is real, I think you can try to gather numbers from complaint sites like http://whycall.me and set up the flooder to their phone numbers. It will work great, I guess. These scammers are very annoying.

How can he call them 28 times a second? Also, my scam calls have fake caller ids. So how does he get their number? Of course we need to phone companies to block incorrect caller id.

Worse, the phone numbers could belong to people unrelated to the scam.

Replying to spam, whether e-mail, text message or voice call, risks "backscatter".
