US attorney general William Barr told lawmakers on Tuesday that large criminal organisations based in India are among those scamming the elderly in America and that he had set up a strike force to combat the growing menace that he called a “sleeping giant” of frauds. US authorities have indicated and prosecuted many Indians for imposter scams involving the elderly and others, such as phony tech support rackets and Internal Revenue Service calls threatening incarceration for overdue income tax payments over the past some years.
