Someone told me that, money is spread all round, just you should have the talent to pick it up all. I am very blissful today because the plan I coveted to implement long back is going to be on the floor now and its chances of accomplishment is above 80%. TN-10400200, I noted the Audi Q6 number a month ago when it hit my bike near the Tidel park but was traumatised to see it standing outside my physiatrist uncle’s clinic.
“What for a side mirror.., may be a luxurious Bentely”.
Back in hostel, I went to my best buddy Akkipali who after the culmination of 2nd year is singing JaiHo with 8 arrears but even he is my best time pass because after long shifts of studies and research work, he is the one who amuses us with his mimics of actors and professors. I disclosed him the stratagem which I was having for both of us.
“ Hello, Mr. RamMurthy Iyer”,mimicked Akki.
“Hello”,replied the caller.
“This was the last word which you spoke, now listen, by seeing the number on the screen you may be confused that you are being called from your own number and if the hell you recognise your voice, you, yourself is speaking from the other side of the phone. Don’t be muddled, I am your inner conscience and am very much outraged because you are not paying the proper tax you should pay and is saving millions of rupees. So, I order you to paint a box emblazoned donation box and fill it with 1 crore rupees and leave it outside Ayyappa Mandir exactly at 1:00am and after finishing this, you go back to your home and mix the holy water of Ganga, Krishna and Godavari and take bath, you will be pure and this righteous will lead you to earn billions the next day. If you will not obey what I said, I will leave your body forever”, the mimic continued.
Next day, he did what Akki said and as we were about to lift the box, we found ourselves surrounded by cops. “Don’t scold us, leave us, and please at least not this bamboo….”.Next morning when we were a bit conscious, I saw three people: one cop, Ram Murthy and his PA.
“What a perfection, same number, same voice?” asked the cop.
“Sir, I don’t know anything, I did what he said”, retorted Akki.
I knew this beforehand that this Brutus will stab me if he will get the opportunity but with no alternatives left, my narration began with the fact that in order to take revenge of that day, I somehow got his number from my uncle’s clinic and used this number for phone phishing. Numerous websites offer fake caller ID services. At least one company offers a £5 “calling card” that you can use to dial any number, enter the number you want to call, and enter the caller ID info you want to display. In addition, instructions for spoofing caller ID information using a Linux computer running Asterisk PBX software are readily available on the Web. Spammers and scammers can also use it to disguise their identities. And since some systems will automatically allow voice mail access if you call from the phone number associated with the voice mail box, unauthorised persons can also use spoofed caller ID information to listen to someone else’s voice mail.
I simply used the technology and was on the way to become a hosteldog millionaire but…. .
“Nice, buddy… I like your attitude but to your kind concern you will be shocked to know that my wife is a physcotic patient, not me but I can use you for locating spoofed calls”, pronounced Mr.Iyer.
“Sir, you can keep the other maestro for dubbing the voices of the actors working in our production house”, mimed his PA.
“Ok, Pa, I am hiring Akkipalli for my production house and not this stupid techo tommy”, announced Mr.Iyer and after the bail of Akki, they three left the police station.
“Don’t play with technology so much that it starts playing with you”, bellowed the cop.
