NEW FRAUD in Mumbai


I have received. an sms today from Airtel stating that they do not ask
anyone to switch off their mobile phones.Hence, the below story seems
to be really true.. Please pass on to as many contacts as possible.
An incident narrated by one of the Chartered Accountants...

This happened in Mumbai.......


I cannot stop myself from sharing this with all of you. It all started
when I received a call from someone claiming that he was from my
mobile service provider and he asked me to shutdown my phone for 2
hours for 3G update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I
did not question and shutdown my cell phone.


After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even
introduce his name. I quickly turned on my cell phone and I saw
several missed calls from my family members and the others were from
the number that had called me earlier - 3954380.
I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried
asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they had received
a call from someone claiming that they had me with them and asking for
money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard
'my voice' crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank
waiting for
next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am
safe and asked them to lodge a police report.


Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to
shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and
hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery had run
down. I myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the
officer that there were many such scams reported. MOST of the cases
reported that the victim had already transferred the money! And it is
impossible to get back the money. Be careful as this kind of scam
might happen to any of us!!! Those guys are so professional and very
convincing during calls. If you are asked to shut down your cell phone
for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND!


Your family or friends might receive the same call.
Be Safe and Stay Alert!

Please pass around to your family and friends !!!
