[Resolved]  Airtel — fraud call from dubai

I would like to draw your attention regarding the fraud call which came to my airtel number. It was from Dubai and they said they are from international office of AIRTEL. Their number was [protected] and they informed about a lottery which I won worth 10 lakhs.The person tried to ask me my PNB account number and further my address.It was really shocking for me when the customer care executive of AIRTEL told me that there is no such office of AIRTEL in Dubai.

This is a shameful act done .I as user of AIRTEL request you to take some action against this so that in future this happens to nobody else

Airtel — Fraud in scheme strategies

I have been using my Airtel Mob. no.[protected] for last 1 year under life time facilities ,even after taking tariff plans to changed my existing call rate no changes take place i have been complaining abt the same to airtel serv. centres call centres many times but no response received yet hence bearing financial losses

Airtel — Cheating act by Airtel Executive

Dear sir,

An Airtel Executive (Name=Pradeep, phone number = [protected]) came to my office and told that there is a scheme under which National roaming will be Free between two CUG simcards applied by the same person.

I asked him "one sim card is going to be in Bangalore, and one is going be in Chennai (I reside in chennai). Will there be any roaming charges if calls are dialled between these two sim cards?"

I asked this question almost 15 times in a month whenever I observed the 'increasing bill' online. He kept on saying "No problem. there will be no roaming charges. It will not reflect in your actual bill."

Now the bill came including the rental charges. He is not attending the calls now. I have already filed a complaint in Airtel. But they told they cant do any justice to me (callcentre executive I spoke with is 'Ramani') .

Expecting your Kind co-operation.

Airtel — my sim card

my sim card is not supporting internet on my pc, it shows some ppp link error, please tell me how to resolve this problem
Such hoax calls are being received regularly. They pretend to be fromAirtel Headquarters Dubai and will ask for Dish Tv IOTZ cards ranging from 9000/- to 9250/- stating that the subscriber has won Rs.10 lac prize and to release the lock they need the money.. I being a dealer of Dish tv advise all such persons to ignore the call and rather lodge the police complaint. Well Spread the message and in case it is possible to register police complaint, then pl. do it.

I know somebody from my contacts who has lost Rs. 40000 to these cheats. He was lured by a huge amount of Rs.10 Lacs. He paid Rs.8350 for some Platinum Card and then Rs. 20000 as Tax for releasing the money and another Rs. 13000 for some blaw blaw... These guys will tell you a new story all the time and will swear of their children that they have the amount lying with them which is ready to go in your account after you pay them the required money. They ask the payment to be made through the DISH tv ITZ cards. Surprisingly these cards are consumed within 10 minutes of reveal of the number of that card to these culprits. Since the calls are made from an international number, it is not possible to trace these people.
My sincere advice is to keep away from these people, they will show you a lot of money but you will get nothing but lose your hard earned money.
I had a missed call from some unknown number today.When I called back at this number, I came to that It was from Dubai and the caller said that he is calling from Dubai AIRTEL office. The number was [protected] and they informed about the lottery which I won worth 10 lakhs.The person asked me to give my account number so as to transfer money of Rs.10 lakhs.
He also said that around 135 Airtel number won this lottery.This call deducted Rupees 28 from my balance in mobile.When I called to Airtel Customer Care, they said there is no such office in Dubai.I was shocked that how someone got my airtel number and trying to hack my personal account number.

I requested the Airtel to take strict action against this number user mentioned above.As the company is such abig brand in India and there is no security check for the customers.
Also I got a fraud message once in my Inbox that is from TM-GUINNESS, the message is Congratulations!! your personal cell number have won a prize money of 700, 000.00 British Pounds for the Splash Promotion organised by Guinness Organistaion. Contact our fudiciary agent in England via e-mail for the claim of the prize money.E-mail:[protected], Tel:[protected]
Airtel should not transfer these messages from the unknown users and operators as it wastes resources, time and money.The sender or the caller should be caught red-handed.

i guess it is easy to get dubai sims in india because now that i think of it that crook who cheated my money was indian for sure and not an arab...
I got a call from the number [protected], saying that i have won Rs 25 lacs in Airtel Lottery. I knew from the very begining that this is a false call and somebody is trying to fool me. I screwed him up over the phone only and to my guess I was right I was a false call to extract money from me.

Just we aware of such persons asking for details. If possible make aware to your friends.
I just got a call from[protected], he said, I have won a Airtel lottery of 10 lakhs.. I said shut up and keep the phone. Though I never knew about this site, it was common sense after all. Why would any company give 10 lakh just like that?? be it Airtel or any gaint for that matter? If so, it would advertise everywhere by now.

I advise you please ignore such calls... BECOZ there is nothing like hard earned money...

I received a call from [protected] and they told me that i won rs. 25 lakhs...then they told me to call on [protected] to get further details...but after reading all the above comments i got to know that ther are fraud...
I am getting call from [protected] - Amit and told me that you won rs. 10 lakhs ... for further inquiry please talk to MR. Rahul Sharma [protected]. While making further inquiry Rahul Sharma told that purchase Dish TV coupen of Rs. 11800 from your nearest dealer so that you will get one secret no. and pass on to me. There after 3 representativs of Airtel will come to your resident and they will deliver voucher of Rs. 10 Lakhs after certain verification.
RS told that switch off your mobile and don't tell this matter to any body else... it is secret from airtel office.

Kindly help us what to do. this circumtancy because i can not switch off the phone... for receiving my normal call.

Be careful every one. AIRTEL please take some necessary actions
I going to put up the case file against airtel telecommunication in consumer forums, i lost my 10, 000 Rs today and surprisingly the dish TV coupon i bought is useless within half an hour, How the hell these Pakistanis are making money from a Dish TV recharge coupon.These numbers are from Pakistan "+92" or "0092" is Pakistan's country code. I can see so many people getting this kind of false call in airtel mobile only, So the moral responsibility goes to this Telecom industry either they take necessary steps or face the jurisdiction in consumer court. Airtel Telecom colud send a SMS or warning through customer care centers regarding to this fake calls but they did nothing. I even called up so many times to the Airtel excutive officer but no one picked my phone.

I have already complained(FIR against airtel telecom) in the police station and tomorrow i am going to consumer forum and mailing a copy of FIR to various news channel as well as local news papers also . Airtel will pay for the ignorance to their customers. It's almost 100 days when the first comment is posted here and airtel is still sleeping.

Let's see if i can bring Airtel into my toes and lick it as well.
Please note the point that only the airtel customers are having these fraud calls.these culprits can ask your home address, license card details, bank account numbers even your pan card number, as they asked these details from me.I request every one who read my message to beware of these Pakistani stupid [censored] frauds.I don't need to tell what is Pakistan? As the whole world know Pakistan is the most dangerous place and a heaven for terrorist.Pakistan is just a dummy land of republic nation they all are just terrorist.

Airtel is big brand in India but do not seem to take strict action against these cheaters.Sooner or later Aritel is going down. I'm going to throw this airtel Sim away outta my mobile.
