KAREN: Public library, Karen.
[cut to footage from Alexander Pistoletov's "Pirates of the Caribbean" video (where he sings in Russian while naked)]
KAREN: Hello?
[the music continues, then cut back to the still image of the librarian]
KAREN: Um, if you're playing that for my benefit, fine. I can't understand a word he's saying. Can I do something for you?
[the music continues, then cut back to the still image of the librarian]
KAREN: Sir, as bad as I hate to say this, I'm recording this call for the police department, so ... bye.

BAIL BONDSMAN: What sheriff's department?
[cut back to the still image of the librarian]
KAREN: You're also talking to the fine police department here in Stilwell.
[cut back to the still image of the bail bondsman]

From wikidot.com:

The 2008 Duncan Scare (less commonly known as the first Duncan Scare or Library Incident) was an incident in April 2008, which resulted in the Soundboard Prank Call community removing almost all Duncan-related prank calls, soundboards, and media from both YouTube and various other websites such as Realm of Darkness (which removed all victim soundboards and calls), based on the erroneous fear of legal repercussions. Such fears were seemingly credible at the time, though would later come to be proven as baseless.

Background
Behind the whole thing was a short recording of a Duncan prank call to the Stilwell Public Library in Frank Garrett's hometown. This in itself, was nothing new, as they had been pranked multiple times with the Duncan soundboard before and had threatened each time to involve the police. This time, however, one of the librarians revealed that they now knew it was not the real Frank Garrett who had been calling them. Additionally, she claimed that both they and Frank had already filed reports with the police department about it and that they knew about the YouTube videos and had reported them. The fact that they somehow found out about the YouTube videos gave a frightening amount of credibility to the supposed threat and has lead some people to speculate that they were tipped-off by a rat in the prank call community.

Not long after it was made, the call was released anonymously through the webmaster of one of the various prank call websites and the alarm quickly began to spread throughout the Soundboard Prank Call community. Xaozzz, who had been behind many of the Duncan prank calls, even posted a video telling people about the call and warning anyone with Duncan-related media or calls on their YouTube accounts to get rid of them ASAP, due to the threat of legal problems. The warning was heeded and incredibly, within about a week's time, the number of Duncan-related videos on YouTube dropped from hundreds, down to one single call, Duncan calls Domino's, which continues to survive today as the oldest Duncan call still on YouTube.

Fortunately for all, the whole thing turned out largely to be much ado about nothing. In the end, nobody was arrested and only a few people actually had their YouTube accounts suspended over it. Sadly, however, there was one lasting effect of this incident, from which the Soundboard Prank Call community has never fully recovered: although most have since been restored, more than a few of the prank calls and parodies that were removed are seemingly lost forever, as some people (especially the more prolific pranksters) even went as far as deleting the original copies off of their own computers, in case they were seized by the authorities.

From knowyourmeme.com:

About
Frank Garrett, also known as just Duncan, is the owner of Duncan Construction which is in Stilwell, Oklahoma. He is one of the most famous soundboard prank call victim of all time. He is known for his fiery temper and use of profanity in response to prank calls, and also for his quick witted responses and defiance in the face of any legal threats made against him.

Origin
The original calls to Duncan were made by a pranker known as w3baholic using a Deacon Frost soundboard sometime in late 2007. W3baholic had been using an expired phone book while calling random liquor stores in Oklahoma and to his surprise, accidentally called Duncan at his job. His fast, bitter and witty responses despite relatively nothing offensive being said led quickly to his very on soundboard which was an immediate success. The original name for the soundboard being "Drunk Guy" after being mistaken for being drunk. However he eventually took the name Duncan, being mistaken for his actual name.

Duncan or Frank Garrett calls quickly became a success with the youtube prank call community even though relatively few calls had been made to him during the early stages of his success. "Hello." "Duncan Construction." "You stupid cocksucker." "Fuck you." "This is a business phone, get off of it!" and the ever-popular, "Well I don't give a shit." among others. In one of these Pranks the legendary "Tom the Pissed off Roofer" was contacted who would also end up receiving his own soundboard.

This was also during a time in which pranksters contacted frank every few weeks to keep things things from getting out of hand. Unfortunately this led to the change of Duncan Construction number and for a while Pranks came to a halt. How ever Duncan's new number (which is also posted on his website) was recovered. Frank to this day hasn't changed his phone number and the pranks continue.

From wikia.com:

Karen the Librarian (real name: Karen George) is a victim who was pranked multiple times by the Duncan soundboard. She is the former branch manager of the Stilwell Public Library, located in Stilwell, Oklahoma, the same town where Frank Garrett lived and worked, prior to his death. As such, she knew who he was and easily recognized the name Duncan Construction as a local company.

As of August 2014, Karen no longer works at Stilwell Library.

Name: Karen Alvira George (nee Smoot)
Category: Prank Call Victim, Victim Soundboard
Occupation: Former Branch Manager / Librarian at the Stilwell Public Library
Age: 1949 (age 65–66)
Nationality: American
Residence: Stilwell, Oklahoma

History
She accused Duncan of being an alcoholic, and remarked that she was not scared of him, saying that she had "put up with a damn drunk stepfather all [her] life." She claimed to have been in the process of filing a police report in a later call, which had echoed a remark made by another librarian named Denise a moment before. She later figured out that Frank Garrett was not actually calling the library and somehow discovered the YouTube videos of the calls, leading to the suspicion that she had been tipped-off by a rat in the prank call community. She alleged that Frank Garrett had filed a report with the police, and that she had contacted both the police and YouTube. This incident led to what would become known as the 2008 Duncan Scare.

She was also called at one point with a soundboard of another Stilwell resident, Charles from A to Z Pawn, as well as a soundboard of Frank Garrett, whom she was told was a Sheriff's deputy. Karen then proceeded to explain what had been happening to her library and claimed that she knew exactly who was prank calling her.

Karen is now well aware of the Prank Calling Community and no longer responds to prank calls, except to half-heartedly threaten to call the police. A victim soundboard of her is also available (see external links below). A final call was made to her by Pranktz on October 19, 2012, again confirming her being aware of the call series on YouTube, making her the last called Stilwell victim of the "Duncan-era". She and the Stilwell Public Library were featured in a special Thanksgiving Day call for The Bail Bondsman Games.

In August 2014, Officer Rivieri called the library with Duncan in the hope to prank Karen. When a different lady answered, another caller asked for her specifically to be told by the other worker that "Karen no longer works here, she retired." Fittingly, Rivieri then chimed in with the famous Duncan line "Awwoh piss!"
