Australians Fed Up with Indian Spammers
The combination of taking a call from India (and probably the fact telemarkers are annoying in general, plus their penchant for ringing at dinnertime, or obnoxiously early hours of the morning) has contributed to the stress of Indian call-center employees.
“Australian accents – especially in working-class areas – are very difficult to understand.
“The Australians then get frustrated because they are not being understood and when they realise the call is from India their anger gets worse.
“They can feel that jobs are being taken away from Australians and if they recently have been out of a job themselves, the abuse escalates,” he said.
