Indian Propaganda Against Pakistan on Telecom Front

Time of India has reported that fraudulent calls are being originated from Pakistan that appears to be involved in lottery scams, victimizing Indian Mobile phone users. Though newspaper admits that technology can be used to change the phone number.

Newspaper further claims that allegedly these callers from Pakistan have access to subscribers’ database of cellular operator Bharti Airtel.

In a general advisory to all mobile/landline users, Airtel has urged subscribers to avoid responding to suspicious calls from unknown numbers, especially those beginning with +92.

Now this is interesting that fraudulent premium IDD calls are being made from Pakistan against very low commissions, as described by Times of India. It said that fraudsters ask for DTH recharge which is way below the viable ROI for the model.

All mobile operators in Pakistan are offering in range of Rs. 6 to Rs. 10 per min call charges for India.

On our part, PTA must come in action and should investigate if any such calls are made in abundance to India or not? If yes then culprits must be shown the bars, otherwise, this claim by Indian operator should be dealt accordingly.

  • Yes its hard to believe that a fraudster will make IDD call, particularly when conversion rate is as low as 0.06 percent (Ref: some research report, i don’t remem name of).

    But fact remains there that authorities should look into such matters, at they are quite damaging for our image.

  • Pakistan is always silent on such things. Examples are Mumbai blasts, and other things.

    We shouldn’t expect any thing from our authorities when it comes to damaging our repute internationally!

    I though expect that some high official is going to say it in press release that this is fact :-p

  • ye indian telecom ki security ha ka WE PAKISTANI can get access to their telecom database
    or ye sub jhoot hai

  • I am not sure about the technology but such incident took place where a friend from chandigarh recieved call from a pakistani mobile no and the gentle man asked her to deposit money because she has got 5 million prize from a mobile company from pakistan.

    I tried calling the no she provided me but there was no responce then i went to the head office to locate the identitiy of the phone user but company said this number is not registered here.
    so we are not sure what is going on ….probably the forces on both sides of border who are not interested in peace are doing all this

  • You can cheap (Euro 0.01 /min or even free ) calls to India using different VoIP Operator. But why would Pakistanis do that ? And calls to a country where 70% is below poverty line ?

    Detecting VoIP calls is almost impossible for PTA, as you can use VPN + VoIP software having builtin tunnling supoort and these calls are not originating from local operators, so what will PTA do here ?

    After reading above comments I feel most of us have already started feeling the guilt..LOL

    @Aamir Atta, your thread seems imcomplete, what are their exact allegations, have they given any proof of this activity ? So that you advised PTA to take action ?

  • Hey…..i think der is no need 2 create a controversy..! Even i read d news in d paper but its just in d favour of d telecom users in india…..take a chill pill !! It happened wid sm of d telecom users dat dey recieved sm msges n calls regarding d same…, airtel didnt wanted dis 2 happen wid others…..prevention is better dan dealin wid an attack like 26/11 again!
