Over 20 Indian-origin persons sentenced in massive call center scam in US

In the United States, over 20 Indian origin persons have been sentenced up to 20 years in prison for their involvement in a multimillion-dollar India-based call center scam. The prison sentences for the 21 people convicted this week range from 4 to 20 years. Several of the convicted will be deported to India after the completion of their sentence.US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said, the stiff sentences imposed represent the culmination of the first-ever large-scale, multi-jurisdiction prosecution targeting the India call center scam industry. According to US officials, the call center scam defrauded thousands of US residents of hundreds of millions of dollars.  Prosecutors said the Indian call centers in Ahmedabad used various telephone fraud schemes to defraud mainly vulnerable Americans, including the elderly and legal immigrants.
