Fake Call Center Busted in Noida, 8 Arrested for Loan Scam

Noida: A fake call centre was busted in Noida, leading to the arrest of eight individuals, including the operation’s female ringleader. The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) disclosed that the group, operating under the guise of facilitating online loans, had defrauded over 300 victims of substantial sums over six months.

According to STF officials, the gang conducted its illicit activities from a rented office space in Sector 63’s industrial area. They lured unsuspecting individuals with promises of obtaining loans from India Bulls Consumer Finance, utilizing counterfeit documents disseminated through WhatsApp.

Led by Additional Superintendent of Police Vishal Vikram Singh, the Lucknow unit of the STF spearheaded the operation resulting in the gang’s apprehension. Seizing a cache of incriminating evidence, including mobile phones, credit cards, laptops, and fake documents, the STF emphasized the magnitude of the deception.

The confiscated forged documents, including falsified ID cards and loan approval letters purportedly from India Bulls, shed light on the elaborate scheme. Victims were coerced into paying various fees such as registration charges, processing fees, and insurance premiums under the guise of securing their loans.

The individuals arrested, including mastermind Chhaya Singh, have been identified as Priya Shukla, Aanchal Chaudhary, Sulekha, Ankit Singh, Vijendra Pratap Singh, Archana Prajapati, and Shivani Thakur. An FIR has been filed at the local Sector 63 police station under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act, with investigations currently underway.
