I know very little about politics and usually don't get involved in it but this is about policies involving security and I'm all for security.

Recently, Mark Rober, Jim Browning, and Trilogy Media released 3 videos exposing and attacking some of many scam call centers in India. In 2 (if I remember correctly) of the 3, they said something along the line of "India is full of good people who hate the small number of scammers" which seems to me like trying to suppress India's bad reputation as "the country of scammers".

I can see how they want people to see India positively. However, as shown in the videos, the government has been allowing such scammers to get away due to bribery and other bad reasons. Since the government isn't taking action, I think we should get more aggressive at getting them to do something.

When a company does something bad that compromises their users' security and rights, they're often quickly written about in the press. Even if they're not directly criticized and shamed, their mistakes are spread to the world. The same thing, I think, should be done to India and their scammers. Spread a bad reputation about it. That can take a heavy toll on the country in many respects. To stop the bad reputations, the government would be forced to take more aggressive action against scammers, weeding out the government officials bribed by the scammers or neglect the issue.

I don't know much about human relations so I could very well be wrong. I'd like opinions and historic evidence as to why such an approach might work or fail.
