Kitboga is a vigilante. The hero the Internet needs. The master scambaiter. He poses as a potential victim to waste the time and resources of online scammers. A few times a week, Kitboga goes live on Twitch, where thousands of viewers watch him troll the sort of people who tell old ladies in nursing homes that they owe the IRS thousands of dollars trying to get their MasterCard number. Kitboga also uploads these conversations to YouTube. There, he has amassed a 1.5-million following.

Recently, he uploaded a video called The World’s Angriest Scammers – 10/10 Rage. “A lot of crazy things have happened to me over the past couple of years as I’ve been calling scammers, and 2020 did not disappoint in the angry department,” Kitboga said in the introduction. “I’ve learned a lot about how to make scammers uncomfortable, how to put them in situations that they definitely don’t want to be in, and as a result, there’s usually some level of anger exhibited.”

Inviting people on a tour of the angriest of angry, the troll picked some of the most emotional scammers he has encountered during the past year, and it’s so satisfying to watch them get a taste of their own medicine.

Kitboga and his team usually get the numbers of the scammers either from his community or via clicking on various sketchy ads, searching for things online, and misspelling popular websites. Most of the time he alters his voice in some way and has multiple personas including Grandma Edna, Viktor, an easily confused person with an incredibly unbelievable fake Russian accent, and Neveah, a Valley girl who rarely understands what’s going on. Kitboga often uses a Roland VT-3 voice transformer.

“Even though what they’re doing is illegal, unjust, and extremely aggravating to all of us, we’re choosing not to fight back with other illegal means,” Kitboga writes. “For now, we hope to raise awareness of these scams and educate folks about them. If we stop calling, that’ll change things too.”

In another, he made the scammer watch him cash out hundreds of dollars that they thought they were getting for themselves

Using his background in software engineering, Kitboga has created the perfect virtual machine for trolling scammers. But he has made a few simple additions as well. Like the file labeled ‘nudes’ that contains images not of lewd acts but of naked mole rats.

Kitboga said the tactics he uses often provide insight into how scammers treat people. “They’re not afraid to pull up your camera or lock your computer and start looking through your pictures to see if they can find something.”

Kitboga also included the climax of a 36-hour saga he has had with a team of particularly emotional scammers
