Phishing Scam Impersonation Scam

A guy without introducing himself and without any preamble asked me to confirm my ic number. When I asked him his name, he said he was Michael. Then I asked why his number indicated overseas prefix. He said he was calling from mom but the number was overseas. I asked him why would mom's number be with the prefix +1. Then he started shouting at me and asked me to provide my ic number. I said he should answer my question first. I could hear some guys shouting in the background "confirm your ic number first" again and again. The background was extremely noisy.

Then when I refused to give him my ic number he called me a dumb lady, I said that he was dumb to assume that anyone would give him their ic number when I can clearly see it is a scam. He asked me if I was Singaporean, I said no. Then he shouted some obscenity at me and told that he can hear from my accent that I am Punjabi. I said sorry, I didn't understand him. Then he asked if I could understand Punjabi. I told him I didn't. Then he kept shouting obscenities and asked me to give my ic number after which I disconnected
