Today, I received a telephone call from the mobile number 90699 35661 which appears to be an attempted fraud. I am placing this for public attention so that people donot respond to the call. At the same time, the Internet Service Provider involved namely, Videocon is being notified for necessary corrective action.
The caller who was a lady made a call to my mobile at 14.50 hours and stated that she was calling from Consumer Court in Delhi and was informing that a 420 case has been filed on me. When I asked for the name of the person and further details of which court, she disconnected. Afterwards, when I tried to call back, there was no response.
Some of my friends have subsequently informed me that they are aware of such calls and in one case the caller suggested help to resolve the case through a lawyer and wanted the person to contact the lawyer.
I would like the public to be informed of such fraudulent calls and request them not to respond.
I also hereby give public notice to the Mobile Service Provider which according to information taken from the web appears to be Videocon in Himachal Pradesh that this incident indicates that they are abetting a crime by providing facilities of telephone connectivity to the fraudster.
I am expecting them to take action to deactivate the account to prevent any further frauds.
I also expect Police in the relevant area to take suo moto action since this is not an isolated attempt but is an organized syndicate that is running a call center to commit such frauds. I wish some responsible police officer takes up this case and busts the racket.
