Enlarge / This is a call center in New Dehli, India, not the Phoenix 007 operation that was busted.ILO reader comments 11 Share this story Last year’s unraveling of the massive India-based telephone scam ring may have been helped by a phone call to a Federal Trade Commission lawyer. According to a Tuesday report in The New York Times, the bust seemingly was aided by the efforts of two teenage employees from one of the companies.

The pair blew the whistle on their former employer, the Phoenix 007 call center that's based outside of Mumbai.

The workers reached Betsy Broder of the FTC after being shuffled from the Internal Revenue Service's main switchboard. Indian and American authorities believe that this call center, along with several others, was part of a massive ring to call Americans in the United States and trick them into ponying up thousands of dollars in fraudulent fees.

This criminal operation is believed to have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.  Possibly as a result of the efforts of these two young men, Jayesh Dubey and Pawan Poojary, their call center was raided by Indian authorities. (The Times also reported the men’s claim that they helped with the takedown is “unfounded, according to Indian and American investigators, who said that the raid in Thane was carried out entirely by the local police without assistance from American officials.

The Thane police said their informant was not employed by the swindlers.”) Weeks later in October 2016, federal authorities in Texas unsealed criminal charges against dozens of people who are accused of being part of a massive criminal enterprise based around theft, wire fraud, and impersonating government officials. Of those suspects, 20 were arrested in the US, where their criminal cases are ongoing in federal court in Houston. Two of the named US-based suspects, Jerry Norris, of Oakland, California, and Jagdishkumar Chaudhari, of Sarasota, Florida, remain at large. Erica Lacy, a spokeswoman for the Department of Justice, told Ars on Wednesday that there is currently no award for their arrest, “but information about their whereabouts is welcomed and can be provided by contacting the local ICE office or calling the ICE toll free hotline (1-866-DHS-2-ICE).”

The indictment was filed against 61 people and includes charges of conspiracy to commit identity theft, impersonation of an officer of the United States, wire fraud, and money laundering. Of those people, 20 were arrested Thursday in the US. The suspects are believed to have orchestrated an incredibly large series of phone-based scams that lasted for years.

According to prosecutors, the suspects would call victims, impersonating Internal Revenue Service and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services officials, and would then demand payment through debit cards or wire transfers.
If victims didn’t pay up, the callers threatened them with arrest, deportation, or heavier fines.

There were also related scams involving fake payday loans and bogus US government grants, according to the criminal complaint. Earlier this month, hundreds of people believed to be associated with the scam were arrested across nine locations in Mumbai, India. The criminal complaint briefly summarizes many cases, referring to victims only by their first name, last initial, and city. For example, one man, Suresh M. of Hayward, California, ended up paying $136,000 through 276 MoneyPak cards to people he believed were from the IRS and who claimed that he had outstanding tax violations. “This indictment will serve to not only seek the conviction of those involved but will send a message around the world that no one is safe from prosecution for participating in such pervasive transnational fraud schemes,” US Attorney Kenneth Magidson said in a statement. “We are extremely vigilant when the names of US government agencies are used to perpetuate fraud for the purpose of victimizing so many innocent American citizens.” Magidson's office did not immediately return Ars' request for further comment. Anyone who believes they may be a victim of fraud or identity theft in relation to this investigation or other scam phone calls may contact the Federal Trade Commission via this website.

In said calls, scammers tried to convince recipients that they were from the IRS in order to con victims into forking over thousands of dollars payable via prepaid credit cards. According to The Guardian, 200 Indian police officers raided nine locations across one of India’s largest cities. "Seventy workers have been formally arrested and around 630 others are being investigated," Paramvir Singh, the police commissioner of Thane, told the British newspaper. "We expect that many more people will be arrested." Typically, the phone representatives would call Americans and claim to be calling from the IRS, saying that the recipient owed "back taxes," and police are "on their way right now." The callers then would give precise instructions as to how to avoid this situation, which would inevitably involve withdrawing large amounts of cash and going to a store like Target or Walmart to buy a prepaid cash card or using a service like MoneyGram to transfer the money to a particular account. In May 2016, NPR’s Planet Money spoke with a representative from MoneyGram, who said that he gets "20 calls like this a day"—people calling MoneyGram to check to see if they received a fake call. "We had a mole go in to the call centres to verify.

The best part is that they were actually recording all their calls. We have recovered 851 hard disks on which the calls were recorded, so we’re going through those now," Singh told The Guardian. Reuters cited local police and reported that "callers were paid between 10,000 rupees ($150) and 70,000 rupees ($1,050) every month."
