Phone scammers are really stepping up their efforts to trick consumers. Between the fake car warranty expiration call, the fake taxman, and the student loan scammers, it’s not even worth picking up your phone these days. But, of course, the only time you won’t pick up is the important phone call you’ve been waiting for.

Sort out the chaos – and give the scammers a dose of their own medicine – with a subscription to a robocall blocking app like RoboKiller. A two-year subscription is on sale for just $39.99(opens in a new tab) (reg. $79) for a limited time.

RoboKiller is one of our top picks for a robocall blocking app, especially for getting revenge on scammers. It eliminates 99% of unwanted calls using a predictive call blocking algorithm that intercepts unwanted calls as they come in, in less than 0.01 seconds. It even stops your phone from ringing, allowing you to get on with your life uninterrupted.

Beyond just blocking the call, however, it actually answers and then wastes the calling bot’s time in revenge. You can choose from a library of hundreds of pre-recorded Answer Bot responses that actually interact with the telemarketer on the other line, so you can trick them into thinking they’re talking to a real person. The resulting “conversations”, if nothing else, are hilarious and satisfying.

Here’s how it works:

The app is highly rated on both the App Store and Google Play Store as it is designed to work seamlessly on both types of devices. Other features include text spam filtering and customizable block and allow lists. Unfortunately, you can’t use RoboKiller on a phone plan with prepaid minutes, but any other smartphone is a contender.

It’s been a while since we last featured this app, but for a limited time you can sign up for two years of RoboKiller for just $39.99(opens in a new tab) – that’s a 49% discount from the usual cost of $79.
