As a lot of people are booking IRCTC tour packages, fraudsters have come up with a fraudulent website offering tour packages in the name of IRCTC. The main intention of this fake website is to make money by cheating people who want to book IRCTC tour packages. The IRCTC has warned its users on this fraud by sending them a warning mail.

IRCTC has warned users that the website named www.irctctour.com is cheating people in the name of IRCTC and is tricking people into making fraudulent transactions. The IRCTC has filed a complaint against this website.

The look and feel of the fake website is just like the IRCTC genuine website. The website also claims that it is part of IRCTC which offers packages on behalf of the Company. IRCTC had sent a warning mail to its users and also a message has been put on its portal.

Here is what the email sent by IRCTC says:

IRCTC - IT Centre had recently received two complaints for fraud booking in the name of IRCTC. The fraud website is www.irctctour.com. The tour confirmation voucher is exactly the same of IRCTC.

A request has been made to create awareness among the near & dear ones through different modes of communication; in order to stop the fraudulent activities.

A few months ago, IRCTC had warned its customers not to share any confidential details related to their account numbers, ATM card, PIN, UPI details over the phone or through e-mails. It also stated that IRCTC never makes phone calls, send emails or messages to its customers asking for personal information for refunds on any canceled tickets.
