Fake call from IRDA

Received a fake call yet again from these scamsters...they took away 1 hour of my time chewing my brains out and blaming the agent for not telling me of the additional bonuses. they asked me the policy numbers and the premium amount. I understood it was a fake call, as they should have had all the details with them if they are releasing bonuses against certain policies of LIC.

He managed to dish out an impressive bonus amount of 1,27,500/- loyalty bonus from LIC. Here is the interesting part...I took all the policies when I was in Delhi, so they should have my Delhi address in their records. Somehow they got my current address in Pune, which was a proof it was a fake call.

On top of it, they said the bonus is split into 2 parts: Silver and Gold. The gold bonus amounting to over 90,000 will be only given to me if I have a reliance policy and silver bonus amounting to some 35,000 will be given if I had a HDFC policy. To play, I said I have policies from both companies. That time they backed out saying they will get back to me with further information...

Fuckers....cheap marketing tricks...assholes !! IRDA - what are you doing? The number they contacted me from is 9313 216 577, and some Sujit Tyagi and Rajesh Shukla

Fake call from an an ill mannered female supposedly calling from a government firm

Received call from the most ill mannered female from the number +91 9136662059 claiming to inquire about my insurance policies and their bonus going to the agent. On telling her, I bought this from bank, not agent, she says" if you buy from a bank, you think there is no agent involved? ".
I knew this was a fake call and asked her to send me a mail about this on whatever email ID of mine is registered with them, on which she hurled choicest of abuses and disconnected the call.

Beware guys, do not entertain such calls at all.

Fake call with name of IRDA

Today I have received a fake call from this number : 08459438147. They mentioned they are calling from IRDA and they also mentioned that IRDA normally do not call any one but if there are any problem with your file then they give a call. According to them, IRDA has legally had flights with insurance agents about high commissions and then amounts getting invested into stock market. They have recovered 2.4 core from such insurance advisors which they want to distribute among several policy holders. The amount which they want to give me is 2.45L which is not a bonus, not a policy redemption amount but a scholarship amount. If I want this amount they their person will visit my address (I am surprised that they had my name + address with them, that’s it I think no other details). They claimed that someone called Mr Autual Shah has filed my papers to collect such amount which they found as fraud so either they will cancel my file then I will not get money or they will correct my file and process it then I have to pay 35000 deposit for 2months 10 days. For a illiterate / unaware people about insurance and what is IRDA this is a really very easy trap. Person started asking my personal details, and when I say I will not share anything then all of a sudden he disconnected the line.. beware. This is a fraud and fake call. IRDA cant call to distribute money.

Fake Bonus Call from IRDA

Today I received a call from +91 1409801051 which says that IRDA has declared a bonus of Rs 1,80,000 for my policy and they have called me from IGMS department for verification because I have nominated any Neeraj sharma to claim that bonus. They wanted me to deposit Rs. 35,000 to generate an INC code to claim this bonus and to stop transfer of money into Neeraj's account. I was surprised that how this can be...I did not authorise someone to claim my bonus. They gave me some registration no. and the number of Joint Deputy director of IRDA "Rakesh Bajaj - Hyderabad". 09716577168. When i traced this number it was issued in delhi. When i serched directory of IRDA - The name is not fake. I believe some other person was talking by changing name.
Finally I spoke on IRDA Grievance Call Centre (IGCC) toll free 155255 and they told it is fake call and do not provide any personal information.
IRDA should take a strong action for these type of calls. Their should a body who monitors these calls.

Fake call from IRDA

Received a call today from someone called PRIYANKA JAIN (+91-9136611494) that there was a SCHOLARSHIP FUND ISSUE (more than 2 lacs) in my name in the year 2011-12. As I have not claimed it, someone called Mr. Neeraj Sharma has issues a application to withdraw that fund on my behalf. Cleverly, Priyanka mentioned that Rs. 38,000/- has to be deposited (as refundable) to claim the benefit. I almost panicked and kept dialing some other numbers to register a complaint, the number was mobile number from Delhi (08459469627 - suspecion, why a govt office will have mobile as a complaint number). Anyway, I am happy that I have read through this section and am aware about this "FRAUD about FRAUD". Someone has to take action against all these people, it cannot be let loose. IRDA - What are you doing.... someone is spoiling your name and looting so many people, why can't you act.

Fake Call from IRDA

Fake Call from IRDA, Today I got a call from One Satyaprakash Rana claiming to be calling from IRDA and saying there are certain benefits due to me worth Rs 2,25,000 which is being transferred to some Rahul Aggarwal on my authorisation, the person was a smooth talker and experessed surprised that I did not know any Rahul Aggarwal so he then on pretext of asking some details asked for by Date of Birth to confirm and to reveal further details on policy etc, ofcouse I did not provide and instead asked him his landline number and email address after whcih he said he will get back to me, surprisingly his phone no was reachable after 5 mins and he said if I want further details I should come to Hyderabad office.... The number he called me from was 08459119188. Going by the comments on this site this clearly was a call aimed towards getting my personal details with an intent to misuse it for some fraud, suck tricksters can fool even the educated lot with their techniques,would request strong action against such people, there is a still a small chance that I am overreacting as the number is still reachable and the some person is answering the calls which is unusual. He had my phone no and name which made him call me confidently by my name.

He said that LIC has declared a bonus to me of rs. 143,000 however 63% of it will go to agent's account because agent has put his agent code in my policy documents and shown me his brother while registering the policy.

Also she told me that a person from Reliance will call me and they will come and collect my document.

I was surprised to know that the person on the phone knew all my details like my address, my Date of birth also the orgnisation I am working in.
How come all these informations are available to these persons?
This is really a serious issue and these personal and sensitve information should not be accessible to these people.

I was ashtonished to hear that a big brand like Kotak Life Insurance have logged in a life insurance policy of Mr.Prabhu Dev Agarwal proprietor of Haldiram Bhujiawala,who according to google also is a convicted person as of now and is under bail.My question is how can a company can log in this sort of policy in thier company violating the rules of IRDA. The annual premium is Rs.1Crore 15 Lacs with service tax and its a pure moral hazard case as per IRDA Regulations.

The form is already processed and awaiting for issuance.Please do the needful to take nessecary step to stop the same at the earliest.

Look forward for your kind action to be taken.

Fake Insurance Bonus call

Today I also received such a fake call from number 1409807679 . The person was claiming that he is speaking from Delhi and he is going to drop a mail for me to LIC for bonus which is pending for me. Though I said I didn't wanted to claim any bonus as I already received all my bonus, he was asking which timing he should put in mail so that I'll get a call from LIC during that that time. Also when I asked how you get this number, he was telling like we call the people who are government persons , retired people or who has good market reputation.I cut the call saying that I don't require any bonus.
