Noida Police had busted a call centre racket that was being run from Sector 63 Noida. The call centre operator used to dupe US citizens posing as US authorities. They used to call the American citizens, telling them that their social security number (SSN) was used for wrong purposes and would be blocked if they do not pay up the required amount. The callers would even threaten the US citizens of dire consequences if they failed to pay up and also threatened them with legal consequences. The call centres were being run by 2 persons from Gurugram who are repeat offenders.
The police arrested 126 persons working in the call centre and seized 312 computers.
