Scams like this happen all the time. This time, the culprits got caught with glittering pants on...

Watch the entire videoclip, it's 23 minutes, but quite interesting and intriguing as to how these scammers operate.

FWIW

The team up of Mark Rober and Jim Browning could only have created this, though Jim Browning really does the essential work here, his skill in backtracing these scumbags is incredible.

That is so clever.  He’s an inventor and a scientist.

How do they get the main scammers in India?

Freeze all their US assets... banks, stocks, buildings other investments (bonds, etc.), force them to shut down all US based operations, deport any employees from India and ban not only those employees, but blacklist the company from ever doing business in the US ever again.

And under special circumstances, request an extradition to the US of the heads of those corporations. India does not want to become an enemy of state and thus will probably comply with the request if required.

Good. This garbage needs to stop.

It's a whack'a'mole, no way to eradicate them, a country of four billion people, most of whom are impoverished is a recipe for creating scammers, but Jim Browning can back trace these call centres to the square block and he passes that information to all sorts of law enforcement, what it will take to stop it is to pressure the Indian Government, start denying aid and lockdown on trade with the Country to get their enforcement standards up.

The Indian government is embarrassed about being known more for their scammers than for their successes.

Embarrassment is one thing, spending political capital to make them do something about it is quite another.

Yes, we should watch how they deal with it.
