Warning: Fake Call from Delhi court claiming case against you!

What would you do if you’re informed of a legal case someone has filed against you? As a law abiding citizen you don’t want any trouble with the courts and will probably seek advice from advocates to help you tide over the situation. There’re some people trying to exploit this vulnerability from the unsuspecting civilians and extract money from them in the process.
I faced this situation multiple times in recent few months, hence posting this for general public awareness.

I received call from unknown number, claiming to be court staff in some courts in Delhi. They state that someone has filed a case against me and ask me if I know about this. Naturally I say No. Next, I was asked to contact a lawyer for help.

First time, I tried to extract more information- like what is this case about, which court it is etc- but they won’t give any details, just suggest that we contact the specific lawyer whom they are naming.

At this point I grew suspicious-
-  No one initiates a court procedure without talking to opponent even once. Court cases can be lengthy and devastating, so every one goes to court only when other options are exhausted. If you're not involved in any business/criminal activity that could be even remotely illegal or unfair to another party, it is very unlikely  that anyone would initiate a court case against you
-   There is no reason why someone should file a case against me in Delhi, far away from where I am, as I have no personal/business interests in Delhi
- If a court case is registered, details are sent by post usually with instructions to appear in court on specific date.
-   A legitimate court staff shouldn’t have problem giving some more details like summary of the case etc

A little check on internet confirmed that this is fake call trying to extract money.

So I either started ignoring their calls, or would make some statements like “I am recording this conversation to give it to police” after which call would cease abruptly.

I asked Mr Dhruv CKV, who is a lawyer+RJ+Certified Tourist Guide to understand what is the authentic way a court case against me would be communicated. He told that there're two ways
- Court issues what is known as Summons to concerned parties, informing them on the case and seeking their response/presence.
- This is often communicated in person, mostly by a court staff
- Summons is also sent by registered post to your address

So essentially there is no need to fear a phone call. Wait for a formal communication, which will never come for fake calls like above.

Hence please be careful if you get similar calls. Ask for more details without divulging your personal information, try to apply some thought and validate if there’s any truth/sense. These people often get only a database of name and number from some agencies and try calling them one by one, hoping that at least some of them fall into trap. If you follow their instruction, you will be asked to make a deposit for court expenses/lawyer fees etc. They will extract as much money as possible till you suspect foul play and stop paying or till you go bankrupt.

You’ve been warned. Please share to help spread awareness. Thanks Dhruv for the legal inputs.

    6. Hi, I ma from kolkata.
      I received three calls within the span of 6 months stating that a complaint has been filed against my name and he/she doesn't knew what the case was about. They gave me a lawyer's number named Aravind to know the details about the case. I think these are a bunch of spineless people who are only interested in getting one's financial details and nothing else. Beware.

      The numbers are 07605817760 07605817759 07890824863.

    8. Hello,

      I got a call today from 7065652919. The lady says the Police will come to your address for legal activities. Not sure from where she is, did not give any information. and hung up the call when i asked her for more information on this. When checked the number on true caller it shows delhi. I have no connection in Delhi at all as this is so far from where i stay.

  2. Thanks for the heads up on this scam. As you have mentioned, anything that's got to do with the court will have a written summons sent to you. This scam must have been thought up by some jobless idiot posing as a lawyer who wants you to hire them.

    BTW if you have a recording of the call, why don't you share it with the cops? Impersonating a govt. official is a crime and will be taken seriously.

  5. I have got calls from some so called LIC guy, stating that our deposit had matured long back, why we hadn't withdrawn and that he would help in withdrawing the money.

  6. In the US, a similar scam is for the caller to say they are from FBI or IRS and say they have levied penalties against the person or some such bogus scare tactic. Even worse they use some spoofing software that really shows the call originating from Washington or some realistic looking numbers. I laughed an d hung up so the caller called me back right away angry that I would not believe him. What a joke.
    In reality such calls could be from anywhere in the world!

    The other scam phone call I lately get is from India. The callcenter fellows say they are calling "from Windows computer company" and offer to help get rid of a virus that infected my computer.

  24. Calls Received on 7th jan and 8th jan'2016

    Fist call on my number but my brother picked up, directly asking about me and whereabouts, contact number and so on...he grew suspicious so he asked what is this about and the guy named, Deepak Sharma, an investigation officer (it seems), states that there is a case filed against me for being a fraud so i have to appear on the court but before that they need to get hold of me so contact number asked. The next day, they called up my best friend with whom i have frequent contacts, this time the guy name is "Rajender Prasad from SSC company". Again with the same statement so my friend told the guy that i have gone to the police station to file a report on fraud calls. The guy got super scared and tensed, started shouting back at my friend why did i report to the police before i speak to them and not only that he threatened her if she don't provide my number this case will affect her too and they can also track her home address. I never get to speak to any of these guys. Freaked me out for a while until i found this page.. "FYI- they don't speak english, typical hindi speakers only".

  34. Just received a call from a person claiming to be Sumit Kumar Yadav from Naraina Police Station, Delhi from 9411039464 and he told me that they have received a complaint against me which they are forwarding to my local police station.

    He had my name, my father's name and my complete address as well... When I probe that what is complaint all about then he said I can only help you with the number & name of the advocate on the file which they have regarding my case. And suggested me to call him for further information.

    And gave me number of a person Adv. S.K. Dubey | 9719530216. I was so sure that it's a scam call as the person claiming to be inspector had really fake voice trying to speak how police persons normally do. But he was following a well prepared script like we normally use in call centers.

    I googled "Scam Calls from Delhi Police" and ended up here. I have recording of the call as well. But I choose to ignore but to put a comment here for other's reference.

    After having checked on this blog, i dared the person on the other end, that i had filed a complaint against her , but was amazed at her audacity when she said would have spoken to police in-charge ...after a few exchanges she hung up...

There was lady and she said that Are you Mr. XYZ (my complete name) and started telling that she is calling from New Delhi Tees Hazari Baug Court, and someone has filed a case against me, and when i asked "What is this call for?", she again repeated the same, again i asked her what is this call for, again she repeated the same, and the line got cut off. All the above numbers call, came in a span of 10-15 minutes continuously, as if someone is working in a BPO, and then their were huge background noise of similar talking. Only the last call i was able to pickup that too which cut off abruptly.

    So folks, when they call dont panic, and ask them the following, "Thansk to let me know that there is case against me, not i am recoding your converstatiion so that i can file a case aginst you who is clalling at my loca court, so that you can come here and fce the law and police" if they still continue, ask them the Case/Complaint Number, and tell them to talk to your lawyer.

  56. Folks, i just tracked the call and see who is behind this hoax calls. It looks like, if you are having any due pending from any of your Mobile/Broadband/internet connection, which you might have disconnected and asked them to remove it, but their billing kept going on and then they have turned to some BPO people to employ them to use this fear tactics to recover your money. I received today 2 calls and fortunately i discovered that it was from Tikona (9811699547,9582074717). They are using this tactics to fear you and make sure that they mint their money with the pending dues, which you might have not used at all or have some issues using their service. Check if this is you case and take action with your service providers accordingly.

  61. Call Vikram Rana or anyone whom you're asked to contact. After some talk they will eventually ask for money. Once you have their bank detail, it makes a stronger case to approach police- probably they will be getting deposits from people all over

It is really frustrating! i also got same type of call from 9555581369 saying that a legal complained has filled by someone in Delhi Court and asked me that "do you have any information about that" i said no. then she said she can give a Govt. Advocate mobile no. who will tell me about the case details.
    When i asked him that i dont know about any such type of case and will take care after receiving legal notice then she drooped my call.

  72. My brother runs a small retail shop & today morning a call came from delhi from number 08376072175 claiming to be delhi sub inspector & told my brother that some person purchased fake sim on his name and did not pay the bill , fir has been lodged in delhi & non bailable warrant issued to arrest him , told him to number of another lawyer yogesh 07053799044 . My father panicked & deposited 25000/- rupees in his account which claims out of court settlement with bsnl. The number used by my brother of bsnl ambala has no dues. When I called them confronting how can warrant be issued without summons by court , they are not picking up the call. Truecaller id says legal , financial , police , govt deptt. Is anyone from truecaller involved in this scam ?

  73. Very unfortunate to read. I think your brother is the first victim who actually lost money because of this scam out of all the comments here.

    Lodge a police complaint and also complain to bank manager where you transferred the money- they can suspend the account if they chose to

  75. Recently they started with this number +91-9643567468 saying calling from Delhi Police and collecting PII Personally Identifiable Information. They should not spell out Police as it's degrading the reputation and faith on Government agencies. This should be STOPPED immediately with harder laws. They are duping senior citizens.

  97. I'm not sure if anyone from law/enforcement/or any other department like operators Reliance keep track of it. I was trying to search a place on RelianceJio web site where I can put the number(s) for them to trace, (or any complaint page) which unfortunately I could not found as of now.
    By the way, I have many lawyers in my immediate family including District Judge & High Court Judges. I am going to take the appropriate action for this; it's enough - I just can't tolerate the way the lady on the other side was communicating. Also, take a note of it that you mostly cannot reach to that number since it is either pre-provisioned SIM or cloned SIM that these group of people are using. Through this media I would like to request RelJio to take care of their mass distribution of SIMs - without checking any background. Easy availability of these SIMs can be used for much more serious anti national activities.

  103. Firstly, thanks for this post and also to all who have made the time to share their experiences.

    Today I got a call from this number 7836079155. The lady on the line told me someone had filed a case against me in Delhi. Of course, she wouldn't tell me the details because they were in a "sealed packet." She asked my address and told me she would send a legal summon and that I have to appear in court. Then she asked me to get in touch with advocate R.K. (or was it R.P.) Chauhan to discuss the matter.

    She had got my name correct. I googled to check the number and landed on this post.

  108. I had got a call to from Delhi court.
    From a lady saying she has a summon from Vodafone company and needs us to be present on the same day as she called.
    She said if I wanted she will break the seal of some evidencial document and have a look or I can also contact some lawyer who is specially appointed for these thing.


    First I was confused n then I said I ll ask my lawyer to which she suggested and sent some number of the lawyer as the summon where due n I didnt hv much time.

    After clearing my head for few sec I realised it's a scam, after she was talking about breaking the seal and will cost me money n pay a settlement amount etc.

  114. Today morning my father got a call on his mobile from some one posing as a policeman from Delhi Police Headquarter and asked for verification of our Company Name, Address and Phone Numbers which to his surprise was correct, he said that Delhi Police Headquarter had received a complaint against our Company from a Legal Firm Chaudhari and Agrawal Head office in delhi regarding a non payment of amt Rs.36000/- when my father said we never have transactions from delhi he said that it is for nonpayment of Water and Electricity bills and when my father refused that as well he said that u had travelled abroad 10 years back it is related to non payment of your amount through Credit card, when my father refused that too he said you would have to come to Delhi Police Head quarter tomorrow morning and my father asked how come someone take a legal action without sending a legal notice then the person said that many times notices were sent to us but our office refused and they even tried to call our office but our numbers were not working. For sometime we were tensed and contacted many people and everyone suggested that this is a hoax call but as soon as i reached office i searched for this and here i am on your blog. Thank you guys now we are assured it was a scamster and tomorrow we are going to complain about it to the Crime Branch as well as Cyber Cell. But one this is puzzling me that is the caller did not ask my father to contact any lawyer.

  126. My colleague got a similar call a few minutes back. The call was from 9205462879, this man identified himself as Praveen Chaudhari, a policeman from Chandan Nagar police station, at Pune. This is in the zone of where my colleague lives. This 'policeman' states that my colleague owes a certain Ashok Malhotra some money and gives this Ashok Malhotra's number as 7042710683. Thankfully, a quick google search brought me to this site where someone has already been contacted with this number (thus getting a hit during the search). I did a truecaller reverse look up of Praveen Chaudhari's number and it looks like a Delhi Airtel number reported as SPAM by 72 people. Thanks for keeping this post running and updated.

    A point to note is that the "policeman" has my friends details including full name, address, phone number. The fact is these are extremely easily available however we tend to forget that in such a scenario.

    Thanks again.

  139. I am narrating the fraud call that I received today, so that people reading this can avoid falling for such a trap.

    This morning I too got a call from a guy called Sidharth claiming to be calling from some Delhi Court's communication department . Call was from number +91 9871492361 and he spoke in hindi. He asked me if knew that there was a case against me. He then said he has received a sealed file of the case number 502 and to get more details about the case and to manage the case related activities I should can an advocate name Jugal Kishore on number +91 9015932362. When I asked who had filed the case against me and what was it about, he said it was all inside the sealed case file and he did not have permission to open it. He said his job was to inform people when he receives such a file. He repeatedly asked me to call the advocate to get more info about the case.

    At this point I was a bit worried but after ending the call I searched online about this kind of call and got confirmation that this was a fraud call indeed.

    If you get such a calm try to stay calm and try to understand what its about but do not argue or get into a verbal fight. Do not reveal any personal details for any reason. Finally either ignore the call or complain to police.

    Stay cautious & share your experience for other's benefit.

  148. I also received a call (second time within 10 days) from a lady (No-95409 97202) saying she is calling from Tees hazaari Courts, New Delhi, and that a case against me has been registered against me here. She asked me to get in touch with a lawyer DK Malhotra (99538 06108).

    What are these guys upto? I am surprised that in spite of so much comments in public domain, our cyber crime police is not active on this!!!!!

  150. Hi, i also recieved a call from the number 8595454513 and she asked me to appear in court tomarrow.. I said, i dont knw abt the case, she said, if u cant come and i can help you, i said, i dont need ur help,send me court order, I will come and hang up the phone. Bcoz i knw frm the first second thts its a fake call..No one is free to make calls to everyone in court, they only send legal notice by post... So if anyone get call like this.. Kindly ignore and hang up the phone... Dont share much details of u
