What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Telemarketing scams cover a wide variety of different robocalls. Most often they involve sales of products and services. These products and services are either non-existent, counterfeit, or unreasonably priced. While many telemarketing and sales scams target businesses, individuals aren't beyond their reach, either. Telemarketing scammers often request payment via gift cards or wire transfer -- payment methods that legitimate businesses do not accept. If you're being offered a product or service over the phone, always be wary.

Fake AT&T DirecTV scam call by madarchod criminals phoning from India This is a fake AT&T DirecTV scam by criminals robo-dialing from India. The East Indian scammer tells you that DirecTV is offering a special low rate for a two-year subscription, but you have to pay $220 for the first two months in advance, and then the scammer asks for your credit card number. A very similar scam is run by these India boiler rooms where they pose as Comcast and pretend to offer fake Comcast sales promotions, but you need to pay in advance, with the goal being being steal your credit card numbers and some scammers also ask for your Social Security number or bank account and routing numbers for fake "verification purposes". I played with these scammers for more than 30 minutes, feeding them totally fake information, before the toilet scum yelled profanities at me while I could not stop laughing. More than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as pretending to be a fake pharmacy, posing as fake Social Security officers saying your benefits are suspended or fake IRS officers collecting on fake unpaid back taxes or fake bill collectors threatening you for fake unpaid debts, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, and debt, student loan forgiveness, credit card consolidation services, posing as Amazon to falsely say that an unauthorized purchase was made to your account or that your Prime membership was auto-debited from your credit card or bank account, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams, pretending to be DHL, UPS, or a bank, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account and routing number, or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers now phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic person speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their India phone room, but then you speak to the East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Scammers always either use disposable VoIP phone numbers (e.g. MagicJack devices) or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake names and phone numbers that show up on Caller ID. India scammers often spoof fake toll-free Caller ID numbers that begin with "8". The Caller ID name and number is often useless with scam calls unless the scam setup asks you to phone them back. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling has no effect. I love to play with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and immediately hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, calling them back if their phone number can be phoned, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, always giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, asking them to speak louder and to repeat what they said to use up more of their energy, pretending to innocently ask the scum why he is shouting profanities at me, etc. The best defense against phone scammers is a good offense by not quickly hanging up the phone, but instead toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes to use up more of their time and energy so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never give an unknown caller your credit card number or Social Security number. Companies who already have your information may ask for the last four digits for verification. Some India scammers ask for your bank account and routing number or ask you to wire transfer them a payment, giving a fake explanation that they cannot accept a credit card or personal check. This is an instant scammer alert because scammers can withdraw money if they know your bank account and routing number (e.g. counterfeit cashed checks) and illegal wire transfers are far less traceable than unauthorized credit card charges. India scammers may threaten to have you arrested, but the IRS, Social Security Administration, and debt collectors cannot threaten to arrest or sue you on the phone; they are required to send you paper notices by registered mail. Some India scammers ask you to use your browser to visit a website that allows the scammer to directly access and control your computer and then they can install a ransomware virus to extort money from you. If the scam sounds very authentic, ask the scammer for their verifiable company name, street address, and a callback number that can be searched and matched to the company name and address, which all real businesses will provide. Every East Indian scammer will immediately fail this test since they all use spoofed fake Caller ID numbers or VoIP numbers that they quickly dispose of. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scammers, usually with a slight or strong East Indian foreign accent, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals. These India scammers belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves, robbers, and rapists who were serving jail sentences and released early due to prison overcrowding.

Caller Name: India scammer posing as AT&T trying to steal my credit card and Social Security numbers

East Indian calls me and asks for me by name (which many scammers do by looking up the names associated with phone numbers to try to gain your trust) and I can tell that he is speaking from a script, and he tells me that I am due a credit refund and he needs my Visa credit card number and Social Security number "for verification purposes". I can hear at least 8-10 other people talking on phones behind him. So I play along with his scam, stringing him along for about 50 minutes, giving him a random fake SSN number. I then tell him after 30 minutes that I left my Visa card at my other second home lol. I ask him if he can credit my refund back to my Diners Club card lol. Being in India, he still does not get it that I am playing with him. I then say, "Oh wait, I found my Conoco bank card" lol, and read off 16 random digits. I hear him typing, trying to charge my fake credit card number, and he says it does not work. I tell him, "You typed it wrong! Here is my number again (16 random numbers), I can use my Conoco card all over the country." Finally, after almost an hour, he realizes that I was scamming his scam. More than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake Social Security or IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty and credit card consolidation services, posing as Amazon to say that an unauthorized purchase was made to your account or that your Prime membership was auto-debited from your credit card or bank account, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to obtain your credit card or Social Security number and personal information.
