Pranking Scammers ft. Mark Rober
Kolkata Sector 5 is the telephone scam capital of the world. Although I've reported lots of scam call centers there, nothing seems to happen. So what could be better than turning up at these call centers armed with (harmless) devices which will get the attention of these scam groups and hopefully the rest of the world.
Thanks to the engineering skills of Mark Rober and the to Trilogy Media who made the trip to India to confront the scammers themselves, we managed to film a set of pranks via the scammers' own CCTV cameras.
Although this is having some fun at the expense of scammers, this is a serious problem. Millions of dollars are lost to these scammers and the police in Kolkata do very li...

    This is truly evil, what the scammers do. Someday there will be no place left for these crooks to thrive. No matter how big an organization gets, it will all be brought down. This is part of the payback for all the criminal activity. Their lives will be ruined if they do not abandon that life and get out before it’s too late. And any authorities who accept bribes, they will be treated the same along with them.
