Delhi police busted a fake call center engaged in male prostitution and arrested the mastermind of the gang. The call center which operated in Sector 1 of Avantika in Rohini in Delhi used to trick people under the guise of providing employment as a ‘call boy’ or gigolo.
More than 50 people were duped out of thousands of rupees by the fake call center.
While the mastermind of the racketeering, a Delhi University graduate who owned the call center, was arrested, eight women who worked as telephone operators to trick people into paying, received summonses.
FAKE CALL CENTER CUT
A case was registered acting on a complaint lodged by a man who alleged that he had been defrauded of Rs 70,000 in a clandestine manner in which he was offered a job as a “call boy” or gigolo. The fraudster deceived him in the name of registering as a gigolo, booking and advance.
During the investigation, it was discovered that the recipient’s Paytm account was being used to obtain defrauded money. Based on technical surveillance, the location was located and a raid was carried out at Avantika, Rohini, Delhi.
At the scene, the police seized 12 basic keypad mobile phones, an Android phone and laptops used in the commission of the offence.
The call center was run for selling potency enhancement pills and sprays and under this guise they tricked people into joining the gigolo service.
The kingpin, identified as Mehtab, had employed 8 women to call and advertise on porn websites. Callers used to dial random numbers and ask people to have drugs to enhance sexual potency.
If someone claimed that his virility and vigor were great and that he did not need such drugs, the callers would ask him to join the gigolo service that offered handsome pay and then tricked the person on behalf of the registration as a gigolo, reservation and advance.
