In recent times several frauds involving extortion of money by threatening a person that a parcel containing contraband items in his name has been seized by police and action is imminent on the individual. They then offer to help and in the process extort money through various means as explained in the above video.
I urge the Police to take action against the intermediaries namely the Banks and the SIM card issuers as facilitators of this kind of a crime.
Bangalore police seem to have disabled more than 15000 SIM cards in such complaints which is very commendable.
This action needs to be done across the country and Banks in villages like Jamtara who make this a profession must be closed if necessary.
