NEW DELHI: There is soon going to be a massive crackdown against the illegal telecalling industry running from different parts of the country involved in cheating US citizens. For the past couple of years, India has emerged as the ‘cheating hub’ from where callers dupe US citizens by scaring them or making fake offers.
To end this menace along with combating other sophisticated crime, the top investigative agencies of the US and India have collaborated.
This week, senior officials from the US Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) met with their counterparts from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Delhi to “further improve law enforcement collaboration.”
According to reports, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Arun G Rao of the US Department of Justice Civil Division’s consumer protection section and FBI officials met with officers from India’s primary investigating agency.
According to a statement released by the US Department of Justice, the senior officials addressed ways to tackle new crime trends, such as combating increased telemarketing fraud.
They also reaffirmed their shared commitment to strengthening cooperation in combatting crime, including efforts to investigate and prosecute cyber-enabled financial crimes and telemarketing scams.
The teams also addressed the need for continuing collaboration in combating growing technology-based crimes by facilitating quicker information interchange and evidence sharing, in order to maintain the security and safety of individuals in both jurisdictions.
