Ever been at the receiving end of a spam call. A viral video uploaded by the US police department just shows you the way how to handle spammers.
Police officer in the Apex Police Department in the USA, Stephens, was at the receiving end of a scam phone call. The video, which has now gone viral, was uploaded by the police department on Wednesday.
Watch the video here:
The spammer was heard saying, "Social security administration and law enforcement agencies have found 25 fraudulent bank accounts opened and used fraudulently using your social security number to commit a fraud of more than 3 million dollars."
After relentless persuasion, insisting the officer to verify the last four digits of her social security number to which she denied, when the spammer sensed that the officer would not budge, he hung up.
At the end of the video, she warned, “Folks, these are scam calls. Don’t ever give out your information. Don’t ever verify information, even if they have it. That information can be found on the web. They’re all scammers."
As the caller had a thick accent, many believed that the culprit was an Indian man.
One user commented, "An Indian who has a bunch of voices in the background?"
"If an Indian calls your phone just hang up," said another.
An Indian national in the comments section of the video came forth and even apologised. "As an Indian, I am thoroughly ashamed and apologize."
