The cheats were posing as managers or customer care executives of banks and making ‘vishing’ calls to cardholders in Chennai.
Banks and police estimates that gang members could have siphoned off crores of rupees by doing online shopping and transferring funds from customers’ account to their account.
"Though all of them were from Haryana, at least three of them could talk in Tamil and extract details from the victims. Sitting in their call centre in Karnal, all of them were using only mobile phones to contact their victims in Tamil Nadu," noted S. Jayakumar, deputy commissioner of police, CCB, who supervised the investigation.
The gang was using the cover of a Vodafone distributor to collect details of bank customers but misused the information to defraud customers through ‘vishing’ calls.
