The police dismantled 25 fake call centres in Delhi-NCR and arrested 300 people over the last five months for duping North American victims. The accused tele callers wouldimpersonate government agents, threaten people with tax fraud or other discrepancies and demand thousands of dollars as ‘fine.’ Some scammers would extort money to fix non-existent computer viruses. On Thursday, Noida police conducted its largest raid: 126 people were arrested from a sham centre that generated $50,000 per day. Twenty-five-year old Sagar Thakkar — who’s still at large — is said to be the racket’s mastermind.
