I got a call from a number saying that he is calling from Airtel head Office and I have won sum of Rs 25 lakhs, the person told me his identity as Kiran Kumar and his Number was - 00923477670982. He asked me to call Mr. Sanjay Verma (as MD of Bharti Airtel ) and his number is 00923467274158. I called at the no. of Mr. Sanjay Verma. He told me that i have won Rs. 25 Lakhs asking me details of my account no. in which i want the amount. I told him the account no. and then he asked me the Identity Card no. I provided him with the same.
Then he provided me with the Lottery No. as 444000. and asked me to purchase DISHTV Vouchers worth Rs 15700, only those which Have SHARUKH KHAN Photo on it, and saying that i have to give him the voucher No. right now on the phone Call. I Refused that its not possible for me to give you the no. right now and it will take me half and hour.
Then he asked me to switch off my Phone for half an hour and donot disclose this matter to anyone because of secrecy.
I called up the Customer Care of Airtel and asked them whether such gifts are really being given to customers. They refused and said these are Fake calls Coming from Pakistan and Dubai.
Then again i got a call from the Number saying that you talked to Mr Sanjay Verma and he asked you to switch off your phone and then I screwed him up over the phone.
I have blocked my debit card of the same account no. and also logged a complaint at 100.
The Police officials are saying that there are lot of such cases coming to them and government is not able to trace them because they are ISD numbers.
All I Would request to the concerned authorities is that PLEASE transfer this information on News Channels, so that many of us can be saved from becoming fools..
