|Pune Mirror report on June 10
Email fraudsters are getting innovative by the day. Following the report ‘More fraud emails’, (June 10), Pune Mirror stumbled upon the fraudsters’ new modus operandi.
This fraudster Radha R, claims to be the wife of Rama Ramalinga, the younger brother of B Ramalinga Raju of Satyam Computers.
Mirror replied to the fraudster’s email requesting for the identity of the sender. The reply came after 48 hours, along with an attachment of family pictures and a scanned copy of a passport.
This did not end here. A UK residential address and a phone number was sent to make us believe that the email is a genuine one.
The content of the latest email is: “I have attached some family pictures to this e-mail and also a copy of my identification, my contact details are below, +44 7010306041, Home number 12A Ramsey Island Chelmsford Essex England, IG11 8BB.
I would really appreciate it if you really told me about your feelings for this transaction, this involves a lot of money and I am taking a great risk and also blind trust in revealing this information to you, I do hope that you would understand this situation and try to keep what we discuss confidential, if you please provide me with your details in your next reply. Sincere regards, Mrs Radha Ramalinga.”
The photographs attached in the email, on initial examination, appear genuine. However, a closer look reveals the handiwork of a skilled photoshop expert.
The passport copy sent by ‘Radha’ reveals flaws at the first look. It is apparent that the typing on the personal details page is a cut-and-paste job.
Moreover, the dates of issue and expiry on the page do not match with the rules of Indian passport authority. On the page, date of issue is June 3, 2002 and date of expiry is June 3, 2012. In reality, the authority endorses the passport to be renewed on June 2, 2012.
However, the phone number given in the email is an active one in UK, though we could not verify the address.
