The racket works in a way that it gathers the details of the taxpayers in America, England, and Ireland. After getting information on the details, the members in the racket call them and pose themselves as the officials of the Customs and Revenue department

As the Western countries impose severe punishments for the delay in the tax payments, the victims will send money to the fraudsters.
