People love Super Heroes more than ever these days. I think everyone wants to be that hero, wants to be the one to save the day, and they would if they had the super powers. But they don't realize they have a lot of power to save lives or at least make a big difference in the lives of others. That's what this site is all about, things you can do, some of them have a bigger impact than others. Sometimes small actions have big impacts.
I was reading the paper today and saw an article about two teenagers in India that saved people in America millions of dollars. And it was typically saving people from losing all of their savings, not saving a couple dollars they wouldn't notice.
These teenagers worked in a call centre set up to scam Americans out of their savings by convincing them they owed money to the IRS. The scam worked on less than 1% of those called but for those it worked on they lost more than they could afford. These teenagers got caught up with the scam becaue they wanted jobs, and those around them had the mindset that it was ok to rob from Americans because America robs from the world, but these teenagers knew it wasn't right so they reported their actions to the FBI.
Can you believe this!? These kids called up the FBI to tell them what was going on. That takes a lot of courage and I think people in America should be celebrating these two.
Way to go Pawan Poojary and Jayesh Dubey, thanks for being you!
If you see something that is not right you have the super power to stand up and say something about it.
