[Resolved]  India Today / Bagittoday — Fraud calls related to winning of 5 lakhs

Address:Gautam Buddh Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, 201301

I have received calls from Fraudsters claiming to be representatives of Bag it today and advising me to deposit 10% of 5 lakhs in cash by visiting any nearest HDFC Bank and deposit the money to another HDFC Bank account located in Goa.
Reason for collecting this money is because I have won Rs. 5lakhs from Bag it today and in order to get the cheque from them I have to pay them an advance tax deduction which is the 10% amount of the total winning amount.

If you call and inform bag it today about it they'll only take down the nos. and say we are looking after this.
But they don't cause I have been receiving these calls from past one year now and till date bag it today has no clue about the Fraudsters.

Please beware of the following nos.and the people whose names are mentioned below:

1.) Ms. Sakshi Sharma called me from [protected] at 10:38 am on 04/06/16

2.) Ms. Ipsita called me from [protected]
at 12:24 pm on 15/06/16

3.) Ms. Dipika Jain called me from [protected] today I.e. 17/06/16 at 02:55 pm
