The Phone Losers of America or PLA is an American phreaking group founded in the 1990s, active on the hacking scene. The PLA e-zine was first written in 1990, and the official web sitewent up in 1994. It has ranked at the top of Alexa's "Prank Call" category.


The Phone Losers of America has a history spanning more than 20 years. While the PLA didn't actually exist until 1994, the ideas and articles which were brought to the PLA began in 1992. By 1995, PLA became very well known in the computer underground for their odd contributions to the text zine scene. Most hacker and phreak related bulletin board systems carried the series of PLA text files.

The PLA text files continued until mid-1997, when RBCP suddenly put an end to them. Though the text files ended, the PLA never slowed down. Their website continued to flourish, PLA TV was born, and several prank call CDs were released. The PLA community continued to grow on IRC and on the various PLA Forums. In 2002, RBCP began an internet radio station which he called PLA Radio which still exists today as Cactiradio, along with an IRC channel.

Some time between 2004 and 2005 Madhouse  was formed by Carlito. Madhouse is a live prank show that has existed since 2005. The host of the show is Mexican-American Carlito and Co-Host Milkman. They both meet RBCP within this time. It's broadcast every week on, and to an audience of over 200 listeners. It's also in podcast format for the people who are unable to listen to the live show. In 2014 Madhouse was successed/spun off by Prank Call Nation.
