[Resolved]  Abn Amro — Credit card settlement

I, g. C. Mishra, subjected to such a racketeering attempt recently; however, we did not end up falling prey to this racket. The facts leading to the present complaint are as follows:
In 2003, i had taken a credit cardfrom abn amro bank,
New delhi, for, which card was fully repaid in or around 2004. However, on monday, 08.05.2016, i received a call between 12 noon to 12:30 p. M. From +91-[protected]. The caller, after introducing himself as neena, stated that he was calling from the central bureau of investigation, new delhi, and had instructions to arrest me and my father for committing fraud. He also threatened that he would get me blacklisted and would ensure that i lose my job and do not get any job in the future, thereby spoiling my entire career. It was frightening to know that this person knew everything about me and my job. Sensing some sort of foul-play, when i asked him to share his complete details such as designation, etc., he didn't give any; on the contrary he asked me to call an advocate looking after the alleged criminal case against me. Since i was very scared and felt threatened, i called on the cell-phone number ([protected]) given to me by neena, which was allegedly being used by an advocate at the tees hazari court, new delhi, during my telephonic conversation with this advocate called, i was threatened with immediate arrest in the next 2 hours in the event i failed to deposit rs.1 lakh with the kotak mahindra bank in the next 2 hours. I was shocked to hear this, and therefore inquired from him as to why, and pursuant to which criminal case, i was being pressurized to deposit such a huge amount with the kotak mahindra bank (A bank with which i have done no business); however, completely disregarded my inquiry, and failed to give any detail about any criminal case against me. Rather, he falsely told me that card of rs.17500 from abn amro bank, and due amount on this was presently at rs.1, 00, 000 (Including the interest). Further, i was threatened that getting into any kind of litigation was futile as the said amount would not get reduced; instead, he warned that an out-of-court settlement was the only choice left with me as that would require me to deposit only rs.1, 00, 000 in the next 2 hours. I was also told that there was an imminent threat of my entire family getting arrested if i did not heed to his advice.
Kindly look into the matter as it is of serious concern. This is nothing but a mode of extorting money from innocent people through serious mischief. I believe this is a very big racket running on a large scale and making innocent people their victims by harassing them. Such sort of mischief should be tracked immediately and nipped in the bud.
