Gold Biscuit Scam — Gold biscuit scam

I am resident of Calicut,

Today morning I received a call from a person speaking Hindi from [protected] roughly at 10 am. He said his name was Mr. Rathode, a poor person and a resident of Alwar. He was offering to sell me some gold biscuits which he claimed to have found when excavating as a labourer near the Taj Mahal in Agra. He said some pipe laying work is going on there, and he was operating a JCB at 10pm in the night when he found the stuff about 4-5 feet underground. He said he had about 6 gold biscuits which had some engravings on them and precious stones embedded. He wanted me to come over to Patela (near Delhi) to check on the items and buy them at 50% of the market rate.

He said he got my number from a truck driver named Pappu he befriended while travelling from Agra to Alwar. He did not remember the truck registration number.

It is important to note that the only thing he was sure about me was that I was in Kerala. He did not know my name (neither do I know any truck driver named Pappu). Please note I have not revealed by name to him as well.

He had a solid story to back up his claim, and also offered a complete address in Alwar which I did not write down. I did ask a lot of details for which he had answers, I think the call lasted more than 5 mins. He was persisting that I not share his number with anyone else.

I am sure this is a scam, and I would not be the first person to receive this call in Kerala.

Hi there.. I am In talk with a Similar Guy in Rajasthan claiming to be Raju. And has given me same story. I had a feeling its a scam and I played along and offered to help him out. I also did a video call with him to see the gold bars and was fortunate enough to take a screenshot of it. I promised him I will come and take him with me to Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu where I can get the work done . Today I clearly told him that if he wants he has to come along with a Minimum quantity and only then things can work out. He claims that his mother is sick and will not allow him to come and crap. I have strictly told him that if he is willing to travel, I will take care of his stay and food and also give him a one way flight ticket.
Me to received a call just now talking in Hindi telling One person from Rajastan (his name was Raju as he said) told that while he was digging soil, he got gold biscuits..and i stopped him and asked him to contact Police. haha..I am puzzled how he got my number in first place. !!!

But I have never understood what these people do finally who get trapped in their story.

I too have been contacted by a person by cell no. [protected] on 1st july at 1.00 pm and he asked whether i m in town, and when i enquired about his identity he said that he knows me and he is a civil works mistri, and said his name to be Shankar. He told me to listen him first, he said that he is Working in Tezpur University, Assam and another fellow laborer found a pot of gold bars nearing around 500-600 gms. He have verified a part of it from a jeweller and got Rs.3500. Since the laborer could not leave the place as he had taken advance for three months, he invited me to come to Tezpur and check the bars first and then make payments. I told that i will call him in the evening. Later in evening his call came, and tried to convince me that i sud come, as this is God wish that he got my number and sud not drop this offer. I being confirmed that this is something fishy, i told him that i can come only after 5 days, and hanged up the call. but even then he called me twice, to which i didnot responded. Again on 2nd July i recd back his call to which i replied that i have no money to buy, you can find any other person.
Im also getting such kind of calls...they talk like poor I booked tickets to and fro for which I lost Rs 2500/- which I cancelled after reading all this...It's better than loosing lacs...

Friday, 13 December 2013 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Crime Branch of Delhi Police have arrested a member of the ‘Tatlu Gang’ who used to loot people from Jammu & Kashmir and Odisha by luring them on the pretext of selling them gold bricks of Mughal era found during excavations behind Taj Mahal. The accused, identified as Mohammad Salim Khan (25), was arrested near Rajokari flyover on Tuesday.

Khan (25) is a resident of Bharatpur, Rajasthan and was arrested following a tip-off. The police have also recovered a .315 bore pistol with two live cartridges from his possession. Information was received that Khan, the leader of ‘Tatlu Gang’ is involved in inducing and luring innocent people of Odisha, J&K and other States on phone for selling fake gold bricks/biscuits at half rates, after projecting the same as genuine gold.

“Once their victims approached them with money, the accused person and his associates would rob them at gun point. Following the information, a trap was laid at near Rajokari Flyover, NH-8 and he was apprehended, ” said Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav.

Khan used to make numerous random phone calls to Odisha, J&K and other such relatively remote States of India posing himself as Rahul Sharma, an extremely poor labourer of Rajasthan engaged in digging work on different lands acquired by the ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) near Yamuna river behind Taj Mahal.

The accused used to lure his targets by saying that during the course of digging in the ruins near Yamuna, behind Taj Mahal in Agra. He had discovered some very ancient gold bricks of Mughal Emperor Akbar’s era and he was willing to sell the same at half rates compared to the market. Khan claims to have five such bricks, each of which is weighing approx. 800 gm.

“When the innocent victim used to come to meet him, he used to cut a minuscule part of the fake gold brick in the presence of victim and by trick of hand, he used to change the fake gold piece with an original one and handover it to the victim as a sample to get it checked, ” said Yadav.

As the sample happens to be genuine, the victim becomes confident after getting it checked from a jeweller and returned to conclude the deal.

“For delivery of gold bricks, he then called the victims in Mewat region and used to loot all the money and belongings of the victims at gunpoint. In this way, the innocent persons of remote States of India, unaware about the intentions of these criminals, got looted of their hard earned money, ”

said Yadav.
