      Bernie Bros are advocating for their own taxes to go up to give everyone else healthcare. Shows how much of an out of touch moron you are.
      The ones that avoid taxes are the republican billionaires like Trump who has admitted that not paying taxes "makes him smart".
      Yeah, keep making your stupidity transparent for the world to see. I think it's hilarious.

    Ironic that I found this video? Just this week I have had an IRS arrest warrant call and all total, in the last several months, 5 other calls wanting to arrest me. Every year and for many years, I have gotten a Federal refund, so I pointed that out to the fake IRS agent. That one, I hung up on. In all 6 of the calls, no one has come from the IRS to arrest me. Now that the IRS scam is sort of fading, it is my social security number is compromised, Amazon fake customer service to verify the correct credit card number on file, then my Microsoft is corrupt, which I don't have a computer, just a smartphone, also someone from credit service to lower my interest rate and last but not least, a subscription if $300 is about to be charged to my credit card. Just this week, 5 robos of some kind, the week before 7 robocalls. It never stops. This used to be sort of funny, something at the office to talk and laugh about. However, now it's not funny, it is getting very scary, almost like being stalked. It is a shame, but I have quit answering my phone, which is a landline. Everything now goes to voicemail. My friend from childhood, told me her mother, in her 80s at the time, lost about $3000 to these vicious snakes. So sad as that was her savings and living on a fixed income. Our United States government needs to step up and try to do something to put these thieves out of business. This just cannot continue as it's going now.

    So many comments in here saying things like "if you are stupid/ gullible enough to fall for this you deserve to lose money. The primary target for these thieving fuckers are the elderly and people with dementia. If you think those categories of people are stupid or gullible I'm glad I'm not related to you. Hopefully no vulnerable member of your family is ever robbed in this way. Good work by all the scambaiters wasting their time though! KitBoga is my absolute hero 😀

      @The Rational Human It's not your style, it is poor punctuation and shows a lack of understanding of how to write the English language properly, just as stupid as people who do not speak English properly, which you sort of allude to. They do get money from people, statistically the people tend to fall into the category of white trash in the south, who like yourself, lack English skills to communicate well in English. There are a whole series of interesting Venn diagrams to do on people that get successfully scammed by people with poor English skills, one of the consistent parts is not having the English skills to understand how poor the scammer's English is. Lack of familiarity with technology and how government organizations like the IRS or institutions like banks work is another big one of course, I know a lot of people like that, tend to be elderly.

    Awww I feel especially sad for the guy in the comments who paid and continues to get harassed. $299. Can we all just calm the racist remarks for a moment. The reason China, Nigeria and India have so much corruption is because they aren’t as fortunate as us North Americans. Imagine being unemployed and competing for reasonable work with little skill or opportunity. Imagine having to “poop” on the street as one comment mentions. We are not entitled to our perfect North american continent; we are thankful. Very lucky to have clean water, public toilets and very few people by comparison. I feel very lucky to know so many wonderful people originally from all over the world. Be thankful - this isn’t your job or the only means in which to survive. At this point we need a real government authority to get to the root and have those establishments blocked. First block the numbers - 2nd - receipted- where are you processing the 💳- wish we could have processed it and got a card company involved. peace ✌️ and love everyone first people - we’ll all be scrounging for clean water one day.

      Braden Scott interesting of you to assume i live in the US/UK. anyway, i never once suggested scams don’t happen in western countries. i am fully aware they do, however SPECIFICALLY phone scams have been very much cracked down on and reporting often leads to a quicker sentencing where in india (can’t speak of other countries) it does not. that’s the opposite of saying it’s race-based, man. i’m saying it’s based in legal action. since it’s easy to get say with phone scams in india, many people operate phone scams in india. because they’re humans, and where it’s allowed humans will flock to easy money gathering. also, as far as i can see, 5.5% of india lives in extreme poverty. sadly i can not find statistics of 2019 general poverty. there needs to be an understanding living expenses there are significantly cheaper so reading articles saying “they earn only $10 per X time!” needs to be converted into rupees and checked specifically. and you’re right, the poverty is dropping in an insane pace thanks to things like a blossoming hi-tech community! it’s absolutely fantastic, and it also Absolutely Does have an effect on daily life, sorry to say but scamming isn’t the “only survival option”.
      i’d be totally on your side if you’d have said that western counties should be doing more to actively support struggling/poor countries
      but that’s not what you said. and the fact you consider the exploitation of weak, helpless people, is absolutely disgusting

    • Braden Scott
      Braden Scott 8 days ago

      @Kip Trevor If you did research you would realize that scamming happens everywhere regardless of opportunity or regulations. There are thousands of scam artists in the United States (President Trump among them) who get away with scamming literally millions, people who steal from the elderly through scams, many of whom are white Americans. That is the point, this has nothing to do with Indians, suggesting that Indians are naturally scammers is racist when I know (white British) people in Devonshire that scammed their own elderly Grandmother, people in Yorkshire that have scammed me and when the criminals statistics show the massive amount of scamming that goes on on a regular basis throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, etc. none of which is dominated by any one racial group, rather it is dominated by the people that call it home. There are very few regulations anywhere to protect against scams under certain dollar amounts internationally, to have my property and money returned by the people who stole from and scammed me in Yorkshire I would need to fly to England to press charges, even though I am in the Commonwealth. Countries generally do not have regulations set-up for Commonlaw or Misdemeanors, and it does not become a criminal charge until it gets into large numbers, thousands of dollars. Police departments are also not setup to try and deal with any of that, you should have heard how confused the British police were about what to do. There are a three times as many Indians in the world as there are Americas, logic dictates that there are therefor more scammers just by population, never-mind opportunity or desperation.
      Also, a large portion of India does live in some degree of poverty, according to statistics from organizations like the WHO, IMF, etc. there are tens of millions of people in India living in poverty, which is a significant improvement over what those numbers were even a decade ago. You are right that the people doing the scamming are not in poverty (although they might be), they have a job that is keeping them from poverty (potentially, like many people they might be working hard at the only available job and still not be able to escape poverty). This is not a justification, but it is understanding and it does put them above people that live in places like Canada, the US and Britain where there are welfare systems and government assistance programs setup to prevent poverty but they still turn to scamming as a way of income. Or people like Trump (or a variety of big businesses, etc.) who could have never worked a day in their life and still lived in comfort of not success and splendour, but still choose to scam people. I also consider it mildly acceptable, because we scam and exploit these people, and have for centuries. My ability to go to Walmart to buy cheap shit (that I don't even need) is based entirely on a history of oppression and exploitation that is far worse than any of these scams. These scammers have never enforced their wills by firing into crowds of people or with gunboat diplomacy, we have. And we have done this to our own detriment, sending our jobs away because we were too cheap to pay a decent price for clothes, food, etc. Doesn't mean it's okay, but doesn't mean that they are some kind of evil monstrosity that are unique and that it is something specific to them. We do the same evil shit, I'm more worried about our evil because I have more (although still negligible) control over it. All I can do about their's is hope that better opportunities decrease their reliance on this kind of thing, that and waste their time to minimize the amount of people they can effect in a given day (which is like emptying the damn ocean one drop at a time, but still better than nothing).

    • Kip Trevor
      Kip Trevor 8 days ago +1

      is this a joke.? the people working these scams are Not living on the streets or misfortunate. the Huge majority of india isn’t. the assumption that because a country isn’t america, it’s automatically a shithole is fucking wild
      and giving people legitimization for scamming people, usually old people, out of all of their money (just this week there was a tragic case of an elderly person who committed suicide after getting scammed from all their savings) especially when they’re the people who need it most for medical bills and aren’t able to work
      that’s absolutely disgusting, and no amount of justification will ever, ever make up for that
      p.s.
      if you’d have actually done any research before commenting this you’d know the reason most of those scams happen around india is because of the incredibly flexible & generally non-enforced laws regarding things like telephone scams. mixed with racism (local indian people are often raised to feel toward americans) it gives scams like this an air of legitimacy in their respective countries

I don't want to go to work for 6am tomorrow to sell people cheap shit at the big-box-store-I-work-at that will probably break and that they can get for cheaper by shopping around (within a 10 minute walk in some instances) or checking Amazon. But I'm going to. And fuck, a lot of the time I am not even sure that I want to survive, what kind of horrible shit would I put up with a real desire to live and real responsibilities? Gets me are the people preying on their own families, the elderly, people who can't really help themselves.

    ANYONE that pays a "tax debt" via bitcoin, iTunes cards, or any other type of gift cards DESERVES to be scammed and is an idiot! There's the immediate red flag right there. Wake up fools!

      Also as the IRS says, they do not even call you like this.
      You would receive a mailing if it were truly the IRS.

      @getpoked you are aware that, for example, a lot of elderly people are on their own, right? Their children barely visit them or even look after them. So yeah, they might think is weird the part about paying with bitcoin, or gift cards, or whatever, but when that pathetic piece of sh*t start threatening them, screaming to them on the phone, they get scared and comply. My grandmother never cared about calls, if she didn't recognize you right away she hung up. My grandfather? Not so much, he couldn't imagine people trying to scam him or trying to get him to subscribe on a magazine or whatever, he thought people couldn't be that 'evil'.

      @Sarah-Anne CarneyAnyone that is "seriously vulnerable, mentally unwell, intimidated or elderly" should have friends or family, or someone informing them and protecting them. I would do the same if someone close to me was any of those things you mentioned. That isn't an argument. This is a hard world , and we should be protecting ones around us if need be. This is far from immature or cruel.

      Or seriously vulnerable, mentally unwell, intimidated or elderly people. No one deserves this. These people are threatening and can be convincing to people who aren't aware these scams exist. It's immature and pretty cruel of you to have that attitude. It suggests ignorance of the more vulnerable people around you. Very sad to hear you have this view.
