How a fake Noida call center run by ex-insurance agents duped hundreds.

Phone data bought online for just Rs 2,500 was used to dupe hundreds of people in a multi-crore loan scam run from a fake call center in Noida, police said. Eleven people, including nine women, were arrested for selling fake insurance policies and loans.

The call centre, run by two former life insurance policy agents, had been operating for over a year from the fourth floor of a building in Noida's Sector 51 market. The gang used to lure people from outside Delhi-NCR by promising high returns on loans and insurance policies, police said.

Ashish and Jitendra, the masterminds of the scam, hired nine women to work as call center executives who called people to sell the policies. The gang used to purchase SIM cards through illegally purchased fake Aadhaar cards.

These SIM cards were used to hide their identity while targeting unsuspecting victims. The organization worked on a commission basis — the more people you lure, the more money you get.

The money from the scam victims was found in a Punjab National Bank account that was rented from a man named Arvind in Karnataka for Rs 10,00 per month. Both Ashish and Jitendra would then use debit cards to withdraw money in Noida.

After the police raid, the black diary used by Ashish was found. The diary details every financial transaction in the year-long scam that netted crores of rupees.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Shakti Mohan Awasthi said that it was busted in a joint operation by the Crime Response Team (CRT) and officials of the local Sector 49 police station on Friday.
He added that a similar scam case was registered against him in Ranchi at that time.

“Ashish and Jitender started this fraudulent activity after working at SBI Life Insurance in 2019. They bought the data of around 10,000 people from India Mart for Rs 2,500 and started calling people across India. , started defrauding them on the pretext of offering loans and insurance”. added

Police have identified the arrested persons as key accused Ashish Kumar alias Amit and Jitendra Verma alias Abhishek. The nine women who have been arrested are Nisha alias Sneha, Riju alias Divya, Lolly Yadav alias Swetha, Poonam alias Pooja, Aarti Kumari alias Ananya, Kajal Kumari alias Surti, Sarita alias Suman, Babita Patel alias Mahi and Grima Chauhan alias Sonia. Included.

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered in the case under the provisions of the newly enacted Bharatiya Naya Sanhita and all the accused have been sent to judicial custody.
