India Busts IRS Scammers

Police in India have raided nine call centers in Mumbai and arrested 70 people who were calling phone numbers in the United States pretending to be Internal Revenue Service demanding payment for taxes.

A police official said that an additional 630 people are also under investigation in the scam after the Wednesday, October 2nd raid.

The India police commissioner explained that victims were instructed to go to a nearby department store & buy a prepaid debt card, deposit the money on the card & then transfer it to a bank account in the US.  The scam netted the operation approximately $150,000 a day, according to The Wall Street Journal.
