New Delhi: The mastermind of the multi-crore call centre scam has all the elements of a bollywood conman!

Latest in the reports being his penchant for lavish lifestyle. As per reports in the media, 23-year-old Shahgar Thakkar aka Shaggy had gifted an Audi R8 worth 2.5 crore to girlfriend on her birthday.

Quoting police sources, a report in the Mid Day said, “Sagar, who owns numerous high-end cars, was the first to buy it in Ahmedabad.”

However, the police is yet to know the whereabouts of his girlfriend.

Shaggy is the kingpin of the call centre scam wherein employees posed as US Tax Department officials, forced the victims, mostly loan defaulters, to part with their confidential bank and financial details, or threatened them with penal action.

After the scared victims provided the details, the call centre employees managed to siphon off money from their bank accounts.
