Elders of 70 to 80 years of age are the target of this gang, who are lured by the gang members with false inducements.
- After the complaint, the police engaged in the investigation of all the cases, all the gang members will soon be in the police custody.
If you are living in tricity then be careful! Here a fraud gang through fake network calling has become active, who are making only senior citizens their victims in the name of life insurance. Many complaint letters have reached the police against them. On the basis of which the police has also started investigation. This gang has made its victim more than 50 people of the tricity.
It is being told that 70 to 80 year olds are on the target of this gang, who are lured by the gang members by giving false inducements. The gang also includes employees working in the life insurance sector, who, as part of a conspiracy, dupe elderly couples by posing as 3 years life insurance for 12 years to lakhs of rupees. By doing this the gangs are also causing huge financial loss to the life insurance companies.
How do you cheat?
The gang members first collect data from the senior citizens of the city. whom they contact through telecallers. Two gang members Puneet and Puneet Arora, local agents visit the senior citizen’s house. Sell them life insurance policies on the basis of false promises and forged company documents. They also make false promises of giving gifts like gold coins, TV sets after the policy is issued.
Once the life insurance policy is issued, we try to keep the elderly person engrossed in talk for 3 years. During this, he could not reach the company office with his complaint in any way, if during this time an elderly person reaches the company office with his complaint, then the senior officer sends him back after misguiding him.
If the matter worsens, then other company joins.
Gang members work in a company only for 3 to 4 years. When their fraud cases increase more, they join another company. But by then they would have taken a hefty commission and salary from the company. When the elder reaches the company to get his policy money back three years or earlier, he comes to know that the policy which was sold to him as 3 years old is a premium payment plan of 10 to 12 years. If the policy is surrendered immediately, they will get the money deducted. One such case came to light with 70-year-old Sarita Khanna, resident of Mansa Devi Complex. Ankush Mittal, Branch Service Manager, Reliance Nippon Line Insurance, has given a written complaint to the police.
The network is spread from Delhi to Amritsar
It should be noted that an official working in the field of life insurance said that the network of Natwarlals selling life insurance on the basis of fake facts is not limited to the tricity. Their network is spread from Delhi to Amritsar. These people cause huge financial loss to the consumers as well as the company. When the company comes to know about their misdeeds, they join another company.
