The U.S. Embassy organized the special screening of a documentary film Bogus Phone Operators, an investigative crime series at the American Center in New Delhi. During the eye-opening documentary “Bogus Phone Operators,” the audience witnessed how U.S. and Indian authorities teamed up to unravel a multi-million-dollar scam by impersonators preying on elderly U.S. citizens.

Through the lens of the investigative officer who led the raid, the documentary “Bogus Phone Operators” sheds light on the scale and severity of the alleged scam, its impact on U.S. victims, and the subsequent investigation involving cyber experts, lawyers, and a joint operation between Indian police and the FBI.

U.S. Ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti introduced the event by saying, “I’m proud our Legal Attaché office is highlighting the successful partnership between U.S. and Indian law enforcement in fighting cyber-crime. By disrupting scammers and potential victims, we’re making a real impact together.”

Yule Kurup, the Producer of Bogus Phone Operators (BPO) shared the meaning behind his documentary.  “We are proud to present ‘BPO’ to audiences worldwide. We as Producers are dedicated to telling engaging and thought-provoking stories that resonate with audiences worldwide, that sparks conversation and inspires change. This documentary serves as a stark reminder of the pervasive threat posed by cybercrime, and the importance of remaining vigilant in an increasingly connected world. Through our exploration of the Thane Call Centre Scam, we hope to raise awareness and empower the viewers to protect themselves from similar fraudulent schemes.”

Satyaprakash Upadhyay, the Director of Bogus Phone Operators, added, “Scammers who make fake phone calls are spreading fast, targeting people worldwide. They are not just random people trying to take money from the victims. They are part of a big, smart technically advanced group that knows how to get our personal information. They even pretend to be police or government officials without being afraid of getting caught, because they are backed by a big network. It’s time to understand their tricks and work together to stop them.”
