I got a fraud call recently and I was able to record it.
The person at the other end was posing as RBI officer and said that because I have not linked my Adhaar card with my bank account, they are getting closed and if I want to save them from not getting blocked, I will to do some verification on the phone call.
Never share the following things ever on a phone call with anyone
If you listen to the audio, you will realize that the person on the other side many times told me that the CVV number and account number is my personal information should not be shared with anyone. They do this to give a feeling that we can trust them and they are really some official people.
However, these people do not realize that their way of speaking and the language is such that it’s hard to believe that they are really some authorized person.
Please share if you have ever got any fraud call like this?

My father got a similar call after demonitisation .
He fell for it and almost gave all info expect CVV. AS HE WAS UNABLE TO HEAR THE OTHER PERSON PROPERLY (Poor pronunciation)
then suddenly my Mother realised it was a fake call n disconnected the call.
They also called the bank hotline number and blocked their card as he gave away a lot of information about the card.
That account was their primary account
I have earlier warned my mother about such calls and never entertain such people.
I told her to give only one answer to such people. Bank Branch is in front of my house n I will personally go there to talk thanks for your call n disconnect the call.
Thanks for sharing this !
Today I got a fraud call and recorded it. They are really fraud people and can con naive people easily. Please spread education about these as much as possible. I was mentally disturbed after I took that call and talked for 17 mins. Feel really bad for those who are connned by these frauds….
Please send the recording if possible !
IMHO you should go ahead and report it. We all have got such kind of calls at least once. But since you are running such a nice blog and have written so many books. You should take the lead on this front as well and this could be another way of you helping other and leading to formation of such an organization or initiative to catch such fraudsters.
How dare the fraudster calls the founder of Jagoinvestor. Reminds me of burglar planned to loot police station unknowingly.
🙂 .. they are not aware whom they are calling !
I recieved a similar phone call twice from an unknown person enquiring about insurance policy details.
Needless to say, these are happening quite frequently now-a-days.
Yea .. looks like the data is getting stolen or sold from insurance companies
What do you plan to do with this recording? Is there a common organization to report such calls via online route?
The plan for the recording was to share with you all ! . I am not sure of the common organisation where we can report it . please let us know if you come to know something !
As a responsible citizen, you should have gone a step further and reported to the police.
Thanks for your comment. Its recorded for sharing with others for now.
Out of so many crores of population in India, they try to fool you. How pity of them. Ha ha

Fraudster: aap hamare bank ka card use kar rahe hai?
Me: Konsa bank?
Fraudster: (taking a pause) SBI
Me: (since i dont have account with SBI so cross checking again) Konsa bank bola aapne?
Fraudster: SBI bank se bolraha hu. aap hamara card use karto hona debit card.
Me: Mera SBI mai account hi nahi hai.
Fraudster: (in rude voice)Nahi hai account SBI mai?

Thanks for your comment Nandkishor Desale
…However, it is also important to note that even if they DO sound like a professional/official/high ranking person, even then the personal details as mentioned above should NOT be shared with them over telephone under any circumstance.
