A doctor had received a call from a fraudster who claimed to be calling from HDFC Life Insurance Company. The caller told the doctor that her insurance policy was in a dormant state since 2013. He also told that she will be getting huge returns if she clears some meagre amount. After that, the fraudster sent an email from the email address and the papers resembling to the company. The email had information such as policy number, the premium paid, the last premium paid and so on. It also mentioned the offer to clear the balance in a one-time settlement. Believing it to be true, the doctor deposited the first premium to the account number provided by the fraudsters. Once the payment was done, she was provided the receipt of the funds cleared. After that, she had even received a letter which claimed to be from IRDA. The letter promised good returns against foreclosing of the dues. The doctor later made the second payment. But, she did not receive any receipt or email for the payment done.
