Do Indian and Pakistani phone scammers think we can't tell by their accent something is up?
"Steve" from Microsoft. "John" from Visa/Mastercard/Discovery/ (they must have merged) always want to help me.
Do they think their thick, bo-bo-bo accent doesn't sound American to us?
I abuse these losers in Hindi, Urdu and Gujarati via Google Translate in their native tongue. Blows their minds every time.

I honestly don't understand how people fall for them. I had one call the other day and ask about my Windows. I asked the guy if that scam still worked, and he said surprisingly, yes, it still works. I thanked him for the honest answer then hung up

It doesn't matter to them if 99% of people know it's a scam and hang up. If even 1% fall for it, the rewards for the scammers can be HUGE.

It is cheaper of those places to Outsource their call centers to India. It is about saving a company money. You can always ask if you can get someone else to talk to.

So you abuse people who are just trying to earn a living? How despicable you are!
Many genuine call-centre workers adopt Western names because they're easier for a caller to recognise and understand. Many are ordered to do so by their employers.
