INDIAN SCAM CALL CENTRE IS SCAMMED!


[link to this post]
 
TBB had a thread on the 'Microsoft' scammers a few weeks back. Now a brilliant hacker has broken into an Indian call centre and captured its own CCTV images, showing an industrial operation in full swing with victims all over the world. He's given the videos to the BBC which will be running it on BBC-1 tonight -- or available online.

Fixed the heading for you.

And here's the trailer smile.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

I love calling these people on the 0800 numbers just to waste their time

It's a sad world we live in. I can almost imagine more effort being put in by the authorities to track Jim wotsisname down and bring him to book than is expended on stopping the scammers.

the authorities

Our authorities, yes. We have no jurisdiction over the crimes committed in India.

I always have mixed emotions when thinking of India as the scamming capital of the world. Having worked in India I always found the people to be hard working and very family focussed and honest but the truth is the chances of being scammed over the phone by someone from India is probably greater than from any other country which is a sad story.

I watch Jim's videos , and some of the other scam baiters who turn the tables on these parasites or at least waste their time , they prey on the old and vulnerable no one should feel sorry for these criminals
