Fake call centre duping US citizens busted in Noida, 36 women among 84 held
The Noida Police claimed to have busted a fake call centre with the arrest of 84 people, including 38 women, allegedly involved in duping US citizens of crores of rupees, officials said on Thursday.
Based on inputs from US counterparts, the Noida Police started an investigation last week and conducted raids at the call centre, located in the Phase 1 police station area, on Wednesday.
According to a senior police official, the accused used to target gullible US citizens by convincing them that their social security number has been compromised. Later, they used to make money by selling fake gift cards and cryptocurrency in lieu of resolving the issue.
Police seized 150 computer sets, 13 mobile phones, one server, Rs.20 lakh in cash, 42 printers, and a luxury car from the call centre.
