Scammy Indian Call Centers Made Up To $225K/Day Pretending To Be From IRS

No one wants to get a call from the Internal Revenue Service, and for many people the tax return process is confusing and fraught with potential for errors. So when someone calls claiming to be from the IRS and in need of more information, or saying you need to pay up or face arrest, you might assume it’s a legitimate call. It’s not. This week, police in India detained hundreds of employees from three different call centers for allegedly making these sorts of scam calls — and raking in big money in the process.

If you don't know who you're talking to, hang up! Especially if they have a foreign accent.
