Last week a reader emailed me letting me know about a call he received from someone with a Delhi phone number.
The caller claimed to be with a big financial institution and said that they have a scheme going which works as follows:
- Invest Rs. 50,000 upfront, and get a 5 gram gold coin free.
- Get Rs. 115,000 as full and final settlement after 5 years.
The reader insisted that they mail him the details or email him because he was suspicious, and rightly so, and the caller said that he can’t send him the details because it’s a secret offer only for a chosen few!
The caller hung up after repeated insistence of seeing any paperwork, and it sure looks like a con game to me.
Have you been approached by an offer like this, what do you make of it?
