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.
