A couple months ago, I ran across a site that look startlingly similar to PrankDial. The colors may not have been the same, the language might have been french, and the layout was different but there was no doubt that these guys just sat down and copied our site piece by piece. The more I looked into Kawab, the more similarities I saw to PrankDial. Here are just some of the similarities I found.
- 3 free calls a day
- token id login
- get tokens
- tiled images for pranks
- a prank counter
The thing that makes me mad is, these guys didn’t just steal the PrankDial concept, they stole the layouts of our pages, the pranks we’ve done, basically our entire business and ported for the French market. Here is the send prank page, the images, the input boxes, laid out completely the same as on PrankDial.
They even completely ripped off our pricing structure. Do these guys even know what original is?
Finally, the most annoying of all. They stole our pranks. We think long and hard about these conversator pranks, while Kawab just listens to ours and translates them into French. Here are just a few of the pranks Kawab stole from Prankdial:
