KOLKATA: The cyber cell of Kolkata Police busted two fake call centres that had been cheating US nationals in the name of IT major, Microsoft .


Cops conducted twin raids following a complaint lodged by the legal counsel of Microsoft Corporation who alleged that such fraudulent activity was causing loss of clients and prestige for them. This is for the first time Microsoft approached Kolkata Police, urging for an action against fraud.

“Two separate complaints were received from Bhupinder Singh Bindra, attorneys of Microsoft Corporation India against some illegal activities of technical support scams, run in the name of Microsoft. The first complaint was against a call centre at Topsia. The second complaint was against another call centre on Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Road,” said joint CP (crime) Murlidhar Sharma.
