Beware of CIBIL Report Fraud

I would like to bring to the notice of the public a fraudulent e-mail that is being sent in the name of CIBIL.

The copy of the email is reproduced below:



Normally the CIBIL Transunion score is expressed as a three digit number and not as single digit such as 8.3.

On verification of the header information, it is found that the e-mail has emanated from Return path is :>

The IP address from which the mail has been sent appears to be

Public are requested not to respond to this fraudulent e-mail.

At the same time, I hereby give a notice to CIBIL that they are now been informed of an attempt by some body to cheat the public in their name and if they donot take suitable steps to prevent such misuse of CIBIL’s name, they will be considered as “Negligent” and providing indirect “Assistance” to fraudsters.

I request the Police anywhere in India also to take cognizance and issue notices to the concerned web hosting service providers as well as CIBIL to ensure that this fraud is stopped immediately.

  1. These fraudsters maybe misusing someone’s IP address especially if they are using IP address masker software. Here the innocent person’s whose IP address has been misused would get into legal hassles in the event of an investigation by the police.

    I see that such mails are being sent even now and everyday we are being flooded with emails from such notifications which seems to be a virus. It doesn’t necessarily talk about CIBIL only but various subjects including receiving of new order, KYC Verification pending, and always has a link “Click Here” which is a dangerous link. I am surprised how anti virus manufacturers and malware is not able to stop these mails.
