Recently, Cyber Cell of the Madhya Pradesh Police Department of India cracked a call center fraud case against US citizens and demanded payment by bitcoin. Eventually 78 people were arrested. It is reported that these scammers claim to be officials of the US Social Security Department and claim that the victim’s social security certificate is used for money laundering and smuggling of drugs. The victim is then told that if they are unable to pay the required amount of funds, their social security number will be frozen and will face legal proceedings. Victims were required to complete the remittance in the form of bitcoin, prepaid gift cards and other online payments, ranging from $50 to $5,000.
