Phone scam targets Indian nationals

Postby ScamNumbers » Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:47 am ... -nationals

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) says Indian nationals are still being targeted by a phone scam that has duped 36 people out of almost $75,000 in two years.

The agency says in the past month, three people made payments of more than $4000 to scammers.

The fraud involves Indian people being called and told there is a problem with their visa or arrival card information, and they need to pay money into a Western Union account. They are threatened with deportation if they do not comply.

INZ said it never calls people demanding payments, and advises not to pay any money over the phone.

Victims of the scam should hang up and report the call to police immediately, INZ said.

Indian Central Association president Harshad Patel said he had already warned its members about such scams.
