The Fonejacker (Kayvan Novak) is a man addicted to prank calling. He takes on various guises to satisfy his need to scam and confuse those on the other end of the phone. His identity is protected by a unique disguise - a red bobble hat.

Mostly, as viewers, we only get to hear the audio recording of the call - animation is used to add a visual dimension. However, sometimes we do get to see footage of the victim taking the call (which, in most cases, has been filmed through a shop window with The Fonejacker standing around the corner making the call)

Characters include African scamster George Agdgdgwngo, wheeler dealer geezer Terry Tibbs and Mr Doovde, a man who struggles with acronyms.
