Maharashtra police uncovers fake call centre for cheating people in Canada: Report


Police in Maharashtra’s Palghar district reportedly have uncovered a fake call centre involved in cheating people in Canada through fraudulent online purchases and threats. The operation was carried out in a housing complex in Nane village of Wada taluka, where the call centre operated from six flats to evade detection by security agencies.

The accused obtained contact details of Canadian citizens illegally and used applications like X-Lite, Eyebeam, and X-ten to make calls. They targeted victims with fake online purchase orders and threatened them with criminal and legal action to force payments, including through Bitcoin.

Twenty-three people have been arrested in connection with the scam, with efforts to trace four more suspects ongoing. A case has been registered against the accused under relevant laws, and investigations are ongoing.
