RSN™ : Indian Police Break Up Online Scam Center

Indian Police Break Up International Fake Computer Virus Scam Business

Those arrested have been running the scam out of defunct call centers.

Indian police have arrested nearly two dozen people on suspicion of defrauding victims around the world by sending fake pop-up messages warning them that their computers were infected with a virus and offering to rectify the problem at a price.

Police spokesman Ajay Pal Sharma said those arrested on Tuesday and Wednesday posed as authorized representatives of Microsoft and other companies and used their logos.

The arrests were made after input from the US and , Mr. Sharma said.

Microsoft was the complainant in the case.

He said those arrested have been running the scam out of call centers in the Indian capital and the neighboring states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh for months.

The Pop-Up Messages Prompted Victims In The United States, Britain, Australia, And Other Countries To Call A Phone Number Shown On Their Computer Screens

They would then be scammed out of money in exchange for supposedly fixing the problem.

Those arrested were mostly people in their twenties and early thirties who quit their jobs in call centers.

Police recovered hard drives, servers, laptops, mobile phones and computers from them, Mr. Sharma said.

In 2016, Mumbai police arrested 70 people for allegedly cheating thousands of Americans.

They would call their victims from call centers in Mumbai and tell them that they owed unpaid taxes and should buy prepaid cash cards to settle the debts or face jail.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or (www.IC3.gov)
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
