The California Crook is a Palestinian-American bail-bondsman in Whittier, California, who was discovered in early 2016.[1] Known for having a short temper, and quick witted responses, often mocking at the prank callers race, and questioning their sexuality.

Due to his clever insults, infectious laugh, and unique accent he quickly became popular among the community. He has become a favorite among many prank calls.

The California Crook was quickly given his own soundboard, one in which he has been called several times with, and has failed to recognize his own voice.

As shown in more recent calls, he is shown to be fed up with the prank calls, and has threatened legal action against the prank callers in his usual obscene and profane manner.

Popularity Edit

Veteran Prankster MFHE has lead a surge of California Crook soundboard usage, effectively skyrocketing his popularity and use by several talented pranksters. This has lead to Rebhert declaring The California Crook Era, referencing it to the popularity heights of Duncan and Bail Bondsman among others, who have provided significant cornerstone trends to the Soundboard Prank Call Community.

In the case of the Crook, many uploaded calls are titled in Arabic translated from English to humorously illustrate his rich Middle-Eastern disposition.

Depiction Edit

California Crook is depicted by the likeness of Indian actor Anupam Kher. According to vague commentary from the blog which the depiction originates, it was taken of Kher as he openly insulted a speaker.

Criminal History Edit

After an investigation it was found that the California Crook had been arrested in 2005 suspected of diverting tens of millions of dollars to the Middle East, money they made through drug sales and hustling cons and jail inmates through intimidation and kidnapping. However it seemed that charges were exaggerated and now he operates normally his business.
