I Went Undercover in a Scam Call Center | Fakes, Frauds and Scammers
Most scam callers will do whatever it takes to steal your money. Most feel no guilt, but a small few know they are doing the wrong thing. We speak to Casey, a former scammer in India who is now working undercover in call centres — gathering evidence to help warn would-be scam victims (who sometimes listen, but sometimes fall for the scam anyway).
We also speak with Ben aka. Pleasant Green, a YouTube scam baiter who works to expose and catch scammers across the world. He recently joined forces with Casey, to try and save people who are about to be scammed out of their life savings.
In a series of candid interviews, Fakes, Frauds & Scammers relives some of the most audacious scams and fraudulent stunts of our time from the mouths of the perpetrators themselves. Whether it’s money, fame or simply an addiction to lying, we find out what motivated these tricksters and whether the highs, lows and ramifications were worth it in the end.
