New Delhi. Be careful if you fill out a life insurance policy. Cyber thugs are adopting new tricks day by day to clean their hands on the pockets of the people. A new case has come up from Navi Mumbai. This fraud has been done in the name of renewing the life insurance policy. The thugs did a complete forgery and taking their victim into confidence, they cheated thousands of rupees. You must know how to recognize this type of fraud at the first stage itself and avoid it.
This is how the story of fraud started
This time a 40-year-old educated businessman has become the victim of thugs. My name is Mumtaz Ahmed. Mumtaz Ahmed does business. His business was badly affected during Corona, so he could not pay the premium of his insurance. In July 2021, Ahmed got a call. A boy was speaking on the phone, who gave his name as Kirti Chauhan.

Kirti told Ahmed that he was speaking to the company from where he had taken life insurance. Then Kirti also said that those who have not been able to pay their premium, the company is withdrawing their policies and refunding the money. If he (Ahmed) wants, he can pay the premium or take his own money by closing the policy.
One thing worth noting here is how the boy came to know that Ahmed had taken a policy from such and such company. Come on, somehow he must have come to know, then how did he come to know that Ahmed has not paid the premium. Actually, these are the subject of police investigation and the police must find out how this was possible.
entangled in things
That boy (Kirti) was confusing Ahmed with his words. He told Ahmed that he could get the maturity amount of his policy, which is about 17 lakhs released, if the outstanding amount of Rs 50,000 is cleared. This means that if Ahmed pays the outstanding premium of the policy 50 thousand rupees, then he will get 17 lakh rupees. Kirti Chauhan assured Ahmed so much that now Ahmed agreed to give 50 thousand rupees so that he would get 17 lakhs.

You can also call it greed. No company releases the maturity amount until the term of the policy is over. You should also keep this thing in mind. If any person gives you such greed by calling you, then you should be alert.
The whole gang of thugs remains active
According to the news of Times of India, four more people called Ahmed about this. The names of the four are – Rahul Sharma, Vikas Malik, Ajay Mehra and Sarfaraz Alam. All four told Ahmed that they were from the company’s staff. These four convinced Ahmed that everything was fine, there would be no problem. On the basis of this, Ahmed made the payment in the name of security charge and GST. After this, he told that a person will come to his house from the company’s side for your verification.
Even after waiting for several days, when no one came, Ahmed himself went to the company and found out. When Ahmed was told that he had not received any calls from the company, he was blown away. They had been cheated.
How to avoid such thugs
Whenever you feel that someone is luring you, then you should understand that cheating can happen. No reputable company asks you for money like it was asked from Ahmed. If you get such a call from any company, then you can call the customer care number of the company to confirm it.
