Scammer Revolts (SR for short), as the name implies, is a YouTube scambaiting channel. Like most scambaiters, SR usually gets into a call with a scammer (usually tech-support and refund scammers) and tells them fake issues he's having with his computer. However, instead of doing a simple Prank Call (like, say, Kitboga), he actually goes a little further, usually having the scammer fall victim to a syskey or their files being deleted.


Scammer Revolts provides examples of:

  • Calling Card:
    • After successfully deleting all available files on a scammer's computer without being detected, he'll usually flood the scammer's computer with pictures of dogs (primarily of the Shiba Inu breed from the "Doge" meme) as well as wordpad files filled with various insults.
    • He also sometimes uses a screaming rubber chicken toy, interpreting it as a scammer's mother disowning them for scamming.
  • Catchphrase: After a successful scambait, he'll usually spout various Hindi curse words towards the scammer, the most prominent ones being "benchod" and "madarchod".
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The scammers he angers usually drop some when they're mad.
  • Foreign Cuss Word: "Benchod" and "madarchod".note 
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He uses tools that most scammers use on their victims against them to stop them from scamming. The most common choice is the SAM Lock Tool (syskey).

  • Obfuscating Stupidity: While pretending to be a victim, Scammer Revolts will speak in a slow and clueless manner (often with a mock southern US accent) and act completely tech-illiterate, forcing the scammer to have to explain every single step of their so-called tech support in painful detail. This serves both as a stalling tactic (to keep the scammer distracted while the files are being deleted) as well as lull the scammers into a false sense of security and make them underestimate him. It usually works very well.
  • Operator from India: Most of his victims are from India.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a lot of these to his victims after he successfully scambaits them.
