There are legal ramifications too. If an AI Bot talks someone into an inappropriate purchase that breaches laws and regulations who is liable? Can the company making the sale claim that no-one is culpable?

I see no reason for why that would happen. Seems much more likely that the last known operator is held responsible, much like any other automated software we've had in the past

I'm less worried about how creepy they appear than how easily AI may be used to manipulate us, as we are easily manipulated creatures:

The question is what do we get out of these things? Where is the benefit to people? I suppose they could help alleviate loneliness and provide companionship but ultimately isn't that just a replacement for other people?
So what is the point of AI if not to squeeze dollars out of people?

"...there is a downside. Could you imagine artificial personas used in telephone scams or phishing situations? A help desk knowing some information and then asking for verification of other data?"

I've already received calls like this on my phone. The first time caught me by surprise, because initially the voice seemed to be interacting as if it were human. It was only when the voice response (AI?) system got a response from me that resulted in an odd statement from the "caller" that I figured out it was fake. So, for my money, the Google Call example is already going on for groups trying to make a fast buck on the unsuspecting.

There are clues that you're speaking with an AI version of a customer support agent: they speak clearly, are patient, and don't put you on hold.

Turns out DARPA is already working on the problem! AI to detect and spoof AI - machines fighting machines. They fight for us, they fight against us. Very matrix-esque.

What does it all mean? Well, I think it means we will be living in a future where multi level verification will be the norm. Use of encryption will be much greater, and we'll sure need to take more things with a grain of salt. It means we're is a gold rush to gather every bit of data about people - not just their online presence. All of this data is what will drive AI to be able to make the fake videos, make the fake phone calls, all to spoof humans. It means we should be regulating this stuff now, which Microsoft (and others) are already doing.
