Telephone lines spoofed by fraudsters

Times of India

WASHINGTON: Indian embassy telephone lines have been spoofed by fraudsters in the US to cheat people for money, according to an advisory issued by mission which warned against entertaining any suspicious calls, reports Times of India.

The Indian Embassy here has informed the US Government about it and launched its own internal investigation.

It also issued a rare public advisory on such fraud calls that has cheated people with money, thus bringing bad name to the diplomatic mission.

“These fraudsters either seek personal information like credit card details etc. or try to extort money from Indian nationals by inter alia claiming that there are errors in their passports, visa forms, immigration forms etc. which could be rectified by paying money, and at the same time warning that the so called errors, if not rectified, could result in deportation of the individual to India or their imprisonment in USA,” the Indian Embassy said in its advisory.
