    I work in retail right now and had a customer a bit ago trying to buy a bunch of gift cards for a scamer. I am happily able to report that I helped them to not be scammed that day.

    I use to hit the ignore button when my phone says potential spam. Now I answer and drag the conversation on as long as I can. I start laughing and make fun of them for the time they wasted on me. They go from professional, to calling me all sorts of names 😂 I love doing this now, and feel like I might save the next person. I've learned so much from you on how to drag it out with wrong answers, and acting confused. I drive for a living and have lots of time on my hands, so sometimes I'll call back over and over and just keep fu@ing with them. Love what you do, and thank you.

      One suggestion is for your company to provide an email address to send these scam emails to like other companies do.
      Also, there is an internal issue of possibly employees giving out inactive accounts for purchase scams. I had that happen to me to an account that I never knew I had.

    I am 68. Got a call from a guy that sounded like he was calling from one of these large busy Indian call centers pretending to be from Medicare. I asked a second time who he was with & he said Medicare, and then asked if I have Medicare A&B. Immediately I told him if he were with Medicare he would know what I do or don't have. I said "You are a scammer!" and then hung up.
    I went on Facebook to warn my friends. I also then warned them about all of the scams and tricks these call centers do with emails and calls. I told them to check out your channel, along with Kit & Pleasant Green, etc.
    Thanks for ALL you do!!!!!

    My advice is to educate the elderly before they even receive the first call.
    That way when they do get a scam call they won't even engage.

      This helps, but unfortunately, they still sometimes fall for it. My own mother had been warned by us time and time again, but still one time gave up way too much information over one of these scam calls. She later panicked and called me realising what she'd done. It was a while back, but I think we were able to put a hold on her card while we tried to work out what was going on, then cancelled that card and ordered her a new one.

    My grandma is getting scammed, everyone has tried to stop her but she won’t listen, she thinks he loves her and he needs her money (gift cards) to come back to the US. It’s sad to see that it is happening to her and others, thank you perogi for raising awareness!

      If someone can, connect her bank to paypal. Use paypal to transfer the money out of her account. Put it in a different bank account. You can connect both accounts. Just keep in mind the numbers of which is which.
      Like your mom or dad to keep it safe. Plus Paypal has a savings part that is FDIC insured.
      Yes, online banks can be FDIC insured. It has a 2% interest so you earn money. I say this to make money back a bit.
      Bank information is needed only to connect.

    If you find an Indian scammer what you can do is put the link on twitter and then tag the higher authorities of that particular state, even if you are not aware of the authorities, i think you have a huge number of viewers from India who will help escalate the tweet.

      Because of this and similar channels, I was able to stop my Grandma from losing $1,000. Unfortunately they got 500 from her the day before. They were running the gift card scam on her. I'm just glad no one else was available to take her to Wal-Mart that day. I'm the only person she knows that would have caught it and stopped her.

    • The Duder
      The Duder 29 days ago

      No. But your responses clearly and undeniably called for one.
      You need to understand that invented delusions have no place here in reality.
      I watched police raid at least one call center over there. I know there was at least one more which took place.
      Its not that police over there do not care. It is because their nation leaders do not care.
      But they are beginning to feel the repercussions of their lack of caring.
      Hence the recent raids.

      @The Duder Didn’t ask for an essay, pal.

    • The Duder
      The Duder Month ago +4

      You can not simply forget about your other "sentence" in order to focus on only one.
      And again, their local police HAVE raided at minimum, one call center, with arrests being made. Probably more, although I have not looked into it since the last raid I had witnessed.
      Your beliefs will usually have absolutely zero effect on actual reality.
      You see, I DO in fact read. And no matter how many times one reads what you left here, there is no escaping your sentences which read exactly...
      "Lol do you really think something will be done? I understand he’s protecting but the authorities in India could care less about this"
      See those other words? The rest of what you had to say are what those words were.
      You did say that. Lack of proper sentences and all, that was you.
      Maybe you were simply trying to make a point. What I did was point out the reality behind your presumptions and beliefs.
      Every time anyone places presumption and belief over reality, someone somewhere will more than likely always say something.

You are a soldier of light, goodness and vengeance against such widespread malevolent evil. May God bless you 100-fold for all your hard work and efforts. Love how you call them honey 😂 it’s hilarious. My husband and I watched your RU-clip videos last night, Saturday night no less, instead of “The Proposal” with Sandra Bullock, and Ryan Reynolds. Your videos were so much more important and entertaining. Hope you take good care of yourself, as this work can be very emotional, and drain your soul a bit.

      @Talyah R Nope, you just need an understanding of what the basic attack vectors are, an understanding of Social Engineering, and know how to teach these concepts so as the students can recognize when they are being used. In short, teaching that the Nigerian prince that wants to give you money is probably a scam.

      @Tom Bown Maybe they have groups that operate more online, if anything. They would probably get in a lottt of trouble if they were detected as being headquartered in China.
      Their country would be ashamed of them and possibly disown them. Not to mention, it's possible that they would consider such a thing as being a way of ensuing a battle over money. China has a lot of product going out and a lot coming in- so, if enough people/companies/governments were to refuse trading with them anymore, then it would be horrible for them, and pretty rough for a lot of other countries, too.
      More to that point: they would probably have to worry about being infiltrated and targeted by the ones they are targeting. Luckily for them, they don't take too much of a hit over things like TikTok or their generic products.
      They would prefer to have a grasp on the perception that people have of them- and they would also prefer to keep a grasp on what their own citizens are learning about in the news.
      Their countrymen, as a whole, generally face an internal battle of being suppressed by their own culture.
      They will cheat to win if they have to- but more often than not, it seems they have enough pressure to actually *be* smart, that they do end up being smart enough to get by without having to cheat. They do face a lot of pressure though, so if it came down to it, they'd have to choose between internal, personal shame, or the idea of publicized failure. (It all depends, of course... and I'd like to point out that the kids only have like 2 hours a day that they're allowed to play games... So, some of them will cheat in a game just to feel that rush of fun... But if they were to be caught and publicized, they'd likely feel humiliation and dread.)
      If any of them did decide to do what you mentioned, it might just be the ones hired by their own gvt... Like the ones who sit on computers, scrolling through and filtering websites.. Or, like the ones sending out filtered or curated news to their own people.

      It’s easy to recognise they use English names but have Indian accents, doesn’t matter if woman or man, surprised that Chinese don’t seem to be using this technique, many of us are so used to foreign call centres for national companies which confuses some people.

    People learning and Guarding themselves with knowledge about how these scammers work and what format and procedure they try to utilize, is the best way to save themselves from getting scammed. No reputable business,healthcare,police,or Govt utilities will ever ask for sensitive information over the phone.
    The sad part is, millions of people still are getting scammed for thousands of dollars every day..
    Thank God for Pierogi and his incredible team!!! You all are amazing people, and the battle center you have created to get payback on these scammers is truly amazing and respectable!
    Keep doing amazing work, and may you all be blessed from now to forever !

      but these people are not prosecuted and why they do it. Just like here in the US. We arrest people but never send them to jail. How come NO US President has got India to work with the US so when we know where they are, the US can send in (already have stationed in India) agents who can then raid/arrest and ship them back to the US immediately for prosecution. The police and politicians are probably so corrupt they allow this because they get their kickback too. So as much he is trying, in the long run this does really nothing to stop the scammers.

  • Steve Konopa

    Just today, I got back from work only to have my elderly neighbor from across the street ask me if I could take a look at something on her computer. She said she got an e-mail from an Intuit address claiming it was a Geek Squad invoice. She actually called the number in the e-mail and indeed got somebody with an Indian accent. They wanted to do the remote access. When they asked her (my neighbor) to log into her bank account, she immediately figured something was not right. She asked them why she needs to log into her bank account and why can't they just refund the money? She also asked where they were at and they said there were in Colorado, which she knew was bogus. The number she called had a Vermont area code. She then basically told them were they can go and stick it and she hung up as well as immediately shut off her computer. She did actually physically go to the local Best Buy, which is very nearby this neighborhood and talked to the actual Geek Squad people there and they explained to her that it was indeed a scam and even showed her what a LEGITIMATE Geek Squad invoice looked like, which apparently does not look anything like those fake e-mail ones. She also called her bank and checked if there was anything funny going on with her account and thankfully the bank confirmed there was nothing going on, nor was there anything charged to her account that did not make sense. I went and checked her computer to see if there was anything on there that got left behind. I thought maybe the scammer had her download something like AnyDesk, but turned out they had her connect using something called "JCare", which is apparently a web-based remote access thing. I did several scans on her computer and did not find anything. I then sat her down and had her watch this very video, which she was glad I did, thus making her even more wiser as to what is going on. Yeah, we dodged a close one, and thankfully, my neighbor was savvy enough to realize something was not right and managed to get out of that. I then told her that if she got any more e-mails from Geek Squad, Norton, Intuit, Microsoft, etc, to just delete them. I also told her that if she had any concerns about the possible charges, is to go look up the phone number from the official website of the company in question and call that. I emphasized to DO NOT EVER call the number that is contained in the actual e-mail and to use the number from the official company website instead.

      The main problem is that he and others like him don't have law enforcement's backing and some serious (Permanent) punishments for the scammers,
