This is in continuation of my two earlier articles titled
I had already indicated a Delhi address in the document revealed in the previous article. Now I place before the public another document that exposes some names in Chennai as people who are involved in the chain of this scam representing a suspected fraud to impersonate the President of India, Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh as well as former Chief Justice of India Mr R.M Lodha .
The offence also involves possibly five forgeries, which includes the signatures of the above impersonated persons and that of Nilam Sawhney, Secretary of the office of CVC and a Trade Mark officer, Mr O.P.Gupta of Mumbai Trademark office.
It is now time for Chennai Police to act and continue this investigation.
I request Ms S.P. Lavanya in charge of the Cyber Crime Cell to take up the investigation suo moto and bring the culprits to justice.
There are two addresses in Chennai viz., No 44A, 18th Avenue, Ashok Nagar, Chennai 600083 as well as No 34, swathi complex, 2nd floor, Venkata Narayana Road, Nandanam, Chennai 600035.
There is a “Registration Number” in the letterhead (shown in the previous article) which could be a registration of a society under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act which also can provide some lead just like the Trademark registration number mentioned in the previous article which has confirmed the fraud.
There is a suspected forged e-mail sent in the name of R.M. Lodha and an IP address to follow which may even provide a mobile identity of the forger if investigated.
But in view of the address and landline number itself being available in the enclosed document, the IP address may not be required except to prove that the e-mail address of R M Lodha is being operated from a Chennai IP address and constitutes another proof of impersonation through a fraudulent G mail address registered in the name of firstname.lastname@example.org
I do recognize that the persons indicated in the enclosed document may themselves be not fully aware of the root of the scam and can turn out to be the proverbial “Mules” themselves. But investigating through them may be required to find out the central conspirators.
I request these persons whose names are visible in the document not to panic and if they are innocent, they should themselves approach the Police and initiate investigation to absolve themselves and help the authorities to find the real culprits. They should preserve whatever evidence they presently have with them to assist the Police.
Chennai Police has to their credit the first Cyber Crime conviction in India (Suhas Katti case) and further many more successes in the Credit Card fraud cases. Now here is an opportunity to bust a major National racket. I wish they take up this challenge and continue the investigation to the logical end.
If properly pursued, we donot know what surprises may be in store. This may reveal lot more than an attempted advance fee fraud and bust a national cyber crime syndicate.
The question is,
“Are We Serious in nipping the Cyber Crimes in the bud?” or
“Are we happy in letting it grow into a major scam in which several innocent persons lose their money before we start investigating?
Chennai Police have to make the choice.
