Twisted Telemarketer Targets Ohio Man

An Ohio man who lost his temper with a telemarketer wound up regretting it shortly thereafter when the person calling his house subsequently phoned the police pretending to be him confessing to a murder! According to a local media report, the bizarre incident occurred on Monday afternoon as John Karas was working around his house in the city of Marietta. Over the course of the day, he had grown increasingly annoyed by calls from telemarketers and declared that "the next person that calls, I’m gonna really let 'em have it."

True to his word, Karas did just that when someone rang his house with another 'can't miss offer' and was promptly lambasted by the irritated homeowner. However, whatever satisfaction he got from repudiating the telemarketer was short-lived as they apparently decided to seek a rather sinister form of revenge on him. The person who called his home proceeded to phone the Marietta police department using some kind of spoofing technology displaying Karas' phone number and they had a rather chilling message for the cops.
