filed their financials with the RoC since 2010 Police suspect that all the call centres involved in the scam were controlled and operated by a mastermind who is still at large This is not the first time when call centres in India have been accused of perpetrating the IRS telephone impersonation scam The US law enforcement agencies first unearthed the IRS impersonation scam in October 2013 Subsequently in December 2013 they arrested Pennsylvania-based Sahil Patel 36 for running an IRS telephone impersonation scam through multiple call centres in India The FBI and Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) found that Patel the “ringleader” of the scam had duped hundreds of people of over Rs 6 crore between 2011 and 2013 Like the Thane call centre fraud Patel used VOIP technology to extort money from victims Since then the TIGTA has only seen a rise in the IRS impersonation scam in the US with an average loss of more than $5700 per taxpayer “The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration or TIGTA has received reports of more than one million contacts since October 2013 TIGTA is also aware of more than 6700 victims who have collectively reported over $38 million (Rs 253 crore) in financial losses as a result of tax scams” a July 2016 release of TIGTA stated In July last year Patel was sentenced to more than 14 years in Manhattan Federal Prison and $1 million in forfeiture for his role in the fraud after he pleaded guilty before US District Judge Alvin Hellerstein a statement released by the US Department of Justice said As a part of its consumer awareness and protection program TIGTA released several alerts and YouTube videos explaining the modus operandi of IRS impersonators But the Thane call centre raids revealed that these videos were instead helping the accused in perpetrating the fraud “To our surprise the questionnaire and script prepared by the accused was by watching IRS official videos available on the internet” an official said Software industry experts and officials from enforcement agencies in the country feel that absence of regulations to monitor BPOs high unemployment rate and slow conviction in criminal cases have together made India a hub for such activity “TIGTA is concerned that the recent arrests in India will not bring a total halt to the IRS telephone impersonation scams” said J Russell George Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration in an email response to The Sunday Express “Members of the public cannot and must not let their guard down” he added The Indian BPO industry had revenues of Rs 186 lakh crore in financial year 2016 according to Nasscom It employs 11 million people exclusively for outsourcing business India’s share of the global BPO sourcing market is around 38 per cent But there is no specific law in India that regulates outsourcing transactions except in relation to telecommunication services Most Indian BPO companies follow the global standards of certification However data privacy and integrity concerns related to outsourcing have emerged as the biggest concerns for the clients of Indian BPOs Nasscom is in talks with the government to set up a nodal agency to monitor collate and disseminate information on international IT frauds involving Indian entities “This particular incident is not much of a BPO issue We should not call them (Thane call centres) BPOs These are companies run by criminals to commit fraud Having said that we have recognised the issue and are closely working with law enforcement agencies” R Chandrasekhar president of Nasscom said “We are ready to provide whatever help possible to the police to get to the bottom of such cases We are committed to make India safer” he said (With inputs from

pulled out due to infighting in the party “I fought and lost three previous MLA elections because of the infighting in the Congress and didn’t want to fight the Antagarh bypoll I only agreed on the condition that I would be backed by the party… But I was told after nomination that I should not call several senior leaders like Ajit and Amit Jogi for campaigning I withdrew because I knew I would lose again” said Pawar who is now with the BJP While he spoke to mediapersons at the Press Club local leaders of the Raipur Congress held a protest showing black flags to Pawar and clashing briefly with police personnel Pawar claimed this was not the first time he had faced a threat from Congress supporters since the bypoll and was “sometimes afraid for his life” Hitting back at Pawar State

Congress leaders Bhupesh Baghel and T S Singhdeo and that Memon had been brought into the Congress on the condition that he would “agree that the voice was his” Agrawal has furnished copies of purported WhatsApp messages and an audio recording of a purported conversation between him and Siddiqui “It is clear that he was blackmailing people… In a conversation with me he admitted that the audio between Amit Jogi and Puneet Gupta had nothing to do with Manturam Pawar I thought I had to bring facts to light” Agrawal said Siddiqui said “Who is Sanjeev Agrawal to give any opinion on these matters… I said nothing about the tapes that don’t concern me I only confirmed that in the tapes which have my voice the voice is indeed mine” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App
