Fake call from IRDA

Today I got a call from +911409804233 calming to be calling from IRDA, and the lady calling told me that my current policy in loss and if I want to recover the money I need to surrender my current policy and buy a new one from Reliance Insurance after paying an anount of 30,000/-.
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.

Are they working for IRDA

Yesterday I have received 2 calls from the number -01143575739. They are claiming that they are the 3rd party of IRDA. Working/running complaint center insurance customers. I want to know is it true or false, because they told that they are calling from Noida, Sector - 62, UP but the calling number was from New Delhi of Bharti Airtel Network Operator. I want their complete address also.

Policy log in fo a convicted person

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.

IRDA - Fake Bonus Call

Today I received a call from 140930360 informing me about a bonus announced by LIC on my behalf of Rs 1.24 lac. However, to claim this amount i have to provide policy details, my address and PAN Card/Aadhar card details. I gave away my address and policy details but as soon he started asking my birth and PAN details I realized that this was a fake call and disconnected the line immediately.

Fake call from IRDA

Today I got call from Manoj Desai (09136763401) saying he is calling from IRDA(Hyderabad) and he is government officer and told me that "Your data of policy is with us, if you are not happy with your current policy and its not giving you good return then they have some policy which will give good returns". And then he started to taking my other information. I clearly say that I am not going to give you any single information about me. Please call me after 10 minutes. And mean while I search number in True Caller and I got result as "Reliance Munnu". So after 10 minutes he called me from some other number 09136423884. This time I told him that I going to file police complain against you as I am sure this is the fake call then he accepts that he is calling from Reliance Life Insurance and after that he disconnect the line.

Fake bonus call

Today i received a call from insurance verification department saying that i have got 154000 as bonus from insurance co. I have been rewarded because there is no withdrawl of insurance money in last so many years. He further said that i have to pay 28000 in name of reliance insurance ,out of which they will keep 500 as tax & return to me 27500. Also, a person will come from reliance insurance for verification and take the cheque. I then asked him for which policy i am getting this money? He said for all the policies. I got little suspicious as i have only got insurance policies from LIC and the guy was telling me that money will come from Reliance insurance. I searched the site and got this page. Thanks all the alert viewers for writing. Callers name was atul pande and his no. was 1409807547

FRAUD BY icici Bank, ask for FD but put mony in ICICI Prudential.

I visited ICICI Bank for Fixed Deposit but Rajesh Sharma employee put my money in Fixed Deposit. I never asked him to put my money in ICICI Prudential. I have urged many times to ICICI Bank authorities that I never visited ICICI Prudential; I visited ICICI bank on dated 28th Feb, 2013, to make fixed deposit of 2 lakh. It was last day of month and they show up as they have no time to deal with me and ask me just to sign the document which they will fill later on, because of their rush hours and closing. Because Before this I had never such a bad experience so I believed and signed and left the bank with this assurance that I will get fixed deposit receipt by courier. This fact that bank employee used his own discretion to put my money in ICICI Prudential about which I never listened. They their selves put my hard earned money in ICICI PRUDENTIAL for 7 years payments which are quite impossible for me to pay for such a lengthy period.On receiving wrong policy I immediately rushed at ICICI Bank Sector 17 C, Chandigarh & enquired about how they could put my money by their own. More over question was from where I would manage such a big money every year. Anyhow on agreed upon I handed over original policy to Mr. Rajesh Sharma, Manager, after all discuss. He clearly admitted in front of many staff members of ICICI bank that if I am not interested in this policy how they could compel me to retain it and accepted the policy in front of many staff members and assured for refund at an earliest.
He accepted the policy and retained till completion of free look period and as soon as free look period completed he sent the original policy by ordinary post at my locked residence because he was much aware that I had left for another place. Post was seen by our neighbor and he informed me. Till date I am trying my best to convey what happened with me.
I would be grateful if I may please help in getting my money back. I have also complaint to IRDA and awaiting their decision

Fake calls of Loan

I have been receiving calls from 01130778963 by some Sachin Sharma who claims that he is calling from Birla Sunlife Loans Department and he will help me get a loan at 4.95% from Birla Sunlife. The only condition is that I need to but a Traditional Policy as a guarantee to secure the loan. When I told him that I will assign my existing policy as a collateral he declined saying that the offer is available only with a new policy as loan requires a new policy.

amit mishra 09555570114

I got a call from some Amit Mishra from IRDA, who told me that he has 2 cheques for some bonus which should have been claimed earlier by me. He had only called to confirm if I was cool with them getting nullified.He told me that my agent should have informed but since he has not his intentions are questionable, as agents benefit from such things.

I dont remember having an agent, I told him my Dad knows all about it as he handles my policies. He gave his number 09555570114 and told me to have Dad speak to him at the earliest. He had my name, landline and address correct. Apart from that probably by coincidence the bonus he mentioned, was almost the same amount mentioned as bonus in a recent letter received from my insurance company. All this had me trusting him. He asked me where I worked, I told him I work in software coding and asked him what should I do to claim my bonus. He told me that he will connect me to the accounts department who would guide me stepwise. The call connected, the guy was polite but seemed confused. When I spoke to him sternly about the procedure, he panicked and said the cheques will be posted to me and disconnected.

To double check I called IRDA, they said they are closed on saturdays and sunday, so how come I got a call today which is saturday. Anyways I know nothing about insurance policies, my Dad is out of town and I am still wondering if it was actually from IRDA, if not is it risky that some fraud has my address, name and landline number.

I would very much appreciate if somebody could guide me through this.
