When was the last time you used your actual voice to verify something? I don't know a single institution (bank, government, etc) that would even notice or say anything if I "changed" my voice.

Well, I don't speak about my bank. I speak about stuff like calling my grandmother pretending that I have problems and desperately need to raise a huge amount of money or calling my secretary to ask her to make a quick wire transfer to a company in Russia because we just made a business deal with them.

In a country where Indian call centers can steal billions of dollars from people by pretending to be the IRS or Microsoft Support and you need to send them Google Play Gift cards to pay your taxes, do you really doubt people would fall for this?
