US Citizens Lost more than $10 billion to Indian Scammers in 2022

US citizens lost more than $10 billion to phishing gangs and fraudsters operating from India in 2022.

A majority of these victims were found to be elderly, who were duped of over $3 billion in the last two years, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) data shows, reported The Times of India.

Fraudsters running illegal call centres in India have been targeting people based in the US, especially senior citizens, on the pretext of providing technical support or other assistance.

Americans lost $10.2 billion through the Internet or call centre-related fraud in just the last 11 months.

This indicates a jump of 47 per cent as compared to the last year, when the total money lost was put at $6.9 billion, the report added.
