Fight Back against the Scammers

This video below is an example of why I love this guy "Pierogi" so much. He is so much more than a scam-baiter (People who call up scammers to waste their time so they don't scam others). He is much more about getting as much information to help the victims of these scammers. I started watching his videos a while back and I'm pretty much hooked. He is a Hero (a blue-haired Hero) in my book. I get so angry knowing that thousands, probably hundreds of thousands of elderly people in the United States are being scammed like this. Help your elderly relatives. Have them watch some of the videos to learn about these scammers. Or tell them to never (ever) respond to an unsolicited call or email. Verify the information by looking up the number on the back of your card, or from a bill, or the official web site. Sadly, even googling for info is no longer safe, the scammers pay for google ads so their scam sites come up when you do a search. I'm in IT, and I can recognize these sorts of things, but I think it is too much for our elderly. We just have to do whatever we can to help protect them. I would like to see some way that this can be stopped, but there is so much corruption in India, where many of these call centers are. Money talks there, and they pay off the police to protect the call centers. One of the largest call centers has 550 employees! Can you imagine how many people they are scamming a day? A month? A year?

Anyway, back to my hero where a victim is helped, and she tells her story. Check out his other videos (be careful, you might get hooked like I am. I watch his live streams on Twitch whenever possible)

3. It's incredible how easily Russia and China play people

Misinformation and attacking facts is very successful for both and very dangerous
