10,000 fake call centres running in Delhi, say police
New Delhi: Over 10,000 fake call centres are operating here and many of them indulge in illegal activities of cheating innocent people, a police officer said Monday.
"Over 10,000 fake call centres are running in the capital which are making around 2 to 2.5 lakh calls daily to people living in and outside the country," Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) S.B.S. Tyagi told reporters.
Such call centres are unregistered and are generating unaccounted money, he said.
"The raids are conducted whenever we receive any specific inputs about such call centres," Tyagi said.
Five people, involved in running an illegal call centre, were arrested Monday for cheating several people. They used to assure people of helping them in getting unsecured loans and insurance matters.
