[Resolved]  Shaha Finlease — Threatening calls and abuse

Dear Sir/Madam,
I need your help in cracking down this scam targeting NRIs and Indians working for IT companies. I have been living in USA for last 10 years now working for New York State govt, I started getting these emails last year about a large balance on my Standard Chartered bank credit card which I paid off and closed before moving here in April 2007. They are asking me to show the proof/letter that I got from the bank at the time of closing the Credit card account or else pay the balance they are claiming. Anybody with sane mind will know that nobody carries the bank a/c termination letters for 10 years especially when you move to different country. Saha Finelease Pvt Ltd called me a couple of times last year but I ignored the call like other scams. If this was legitimate, they would have emailed/called on my registered mobile number in 2007 itself and never close my account if its unpaid.
Now they started calling my in-laws and parents who are not listed anywhere in the account. (Not to mention, I wasn’t even married back then so having their number in any file doesn’t make sense). They are getting these repeated calls and threats from Saha Finelease Pvt Ltd saying they will come to their home to collect the money, cancel our visas and arrest/kill us when we come to India. My parents and in-laws are traumatized by this harassment so I need to take a serious action against them now. They are well prepared like other scammers and try to get new addresses and information every time they call a new person.
When I called them to confront, the guy named Ashish (cell:[protected] offered me a settlement of Rs. 1 lakh which I obviously rejected so he started abusing me in Hindi and also threatened me that he has all my info and can make 100 fake Credit cards with my name and distribute them among friends to use.
Please help me putting an end to this and stop them from harassing my parents and in-laws further and also prevent my identity theft. They also mentioned that they will ruin my CIBIL history if I don’t pay them. Everybody know how these Credit card scammers misuse customer’s info to make fake cards and abuse it so I am afraid that might happen in my case as they have all the addresses and phone numbers and also my PAN card no.
I am confused what to do and why should I pay if I don’t owe a single penny to them?
Here is one of the links I found about their frauds -

I requested Standard Chartered bank to intervene and resolve it for me. I had closed my account but somehow they kept billing it. finally I had to pay 10, 000 RS so that they stop calling my family and don't tamper my CIBIL anymore. Frustrated but had to pay. Well, looks like its a new way to extort money from middle class these days.
