Phone numbers are pretty random and if your an professional scam indian (my blog) telling me or the zoo we have a virus*, or tax refund then its safe to say most of us regard those as crime.
What surprised me and many others was that clearly they had been ringing the wrong phone numbers when somebody in the US and elsewhere finally got the indian police to raid these crime call centres and arrest hundreds of criminals in phone fraud – i was only doing my job seems to be no excuse.
It will be interesting to see if any money is recovered by governments from tax fraud or if the money stolen will remain in India meaning that crime pays well for india. Perhaps if it does not it should be recorded as an economics net gain i suggest if this happens it should be called Kkaran Bahree netgain** funds.
Somebody in India did ring the wrong phone number once too many but the zoo is not one of those numbers.
