Fraud by 9900880457: “Your phone will be deactivated”

For some time now a fraud is being attempted by some automated calls made from different numbers stating….” Calling from Telecom department …All your phones will be deactivated within 2 hours. Press 9 for more information” etc…

It is obvious that this is a fraud. However such frauds occur because telecom companies donot take preventive action and police donot come in except after some body who has lost money complains.

Just now I received such a call from the number 9900880457. Earlier such calls have come from other numbers also.

I want people to be careful about such calls. If possible the above mobile number (which may be fake) be traced.
