My replacement.

Indian man convicted in call-center fraud case scamming Americans out of millions

According to admissions he made as part of his plea deal, Patel operated a complex scheme with help from co-conspirators in the U.S. and India. From call centers in Ahmedabad, India, Patel’s employees would impersonate officials from the IRS and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to defraud victims across the U.S.

Said victims were threatened with arrest, imprisonment, fines or deportation if they did not pay alleged monies owed to the government, the DOJ said.

Patel admitted to operating and funding several India-based call centers from which these elaborate schemes were perpetrated.

According to a co-defendant, Patel was arrested in India in 2016 but paid a bribe and was released. He was arrested in Singapore in September 2018 at the request of the U.S. He was then extradited to the U.S. to face charges in the money laundering scheme.

My career at the time I was laid-off (and retired) was setting up, running and maintaining Call Centers.  My job was shipped off to India.   This kind of shit didn’t happen on my watch.
