Titlecard artwork for the YouTube channel and user "Telefonziege".

"Telefonziege" (transl. "Telephone goat") produces videos in Germany about fraudulent callcenters (mostly from Eastern Europe or Turkey) trying to scam people on the phone. They offer to give away credit cards, lottery money, voyages or cheaper electricity tariffs (just to name a few of their schemes) but in the end they want to gain money in an illegal way.
"Telefonziege" lets different characters talk to these scammers in order to 1. hoax them and 2. inform viewers about how these (illegal) calls work.
So it's an infotainment project.
About the video/titlecard:
In this Russian character Dimitri does NOT get a call but calls himself a fake Microsoft expert who you're suppoused to call whenever you get one of the fake error messages that go like "Your PC has a virus, call Microsoft for help" (and who hacks himself into your computer which I've heard is especially a "popular" scamming tactic in the USA but this "scambaiting" seems to be quite popular there, too).
So Dimitri pretends to have a real PC problem (due to watching porn everyday or other causes) and wastes about an hour of this scammer's time but is not alone this time. Sometimes other characters of his get involved like Indian goat Rakesh or gay goat Dorian. And sometimes, like in this video, I am involved as a female guest voice
But why the reference to the Vault-Tec salesman from the game "Fallout 4"?
Well, "Telefonziege" had the idea of using a soundboard for the first time. This soundboard contained (German) audio clips out of "Fallout 4", specifically spoken by a minor character who visits you to sell you a place in a vault for your family (in case a nuclear catastrophe will take place soon).
"Telefonziege" seems to like the game and also to see connections between this character and the annoying callcenter people trying to sell you something in a pushy way.
The text is German but the salesman just greets "Good morning! I am from Vault-Tec!". The multiple choice answers are a couple of reactions Telefonziege has received whenever the scammers reacted confused or annoyed to his calls.
