It started in the US as a simple text fraud. Now, this fake parcel scam innovatively adapted to India as an intricate scheme with multiple tech-savvy players.

Listen to this Article At 11:39 am on March 7, 2023, I received a phone call from FedEx stating that a parcel I sent had been stopped from being delivered. A man called Kiran Sharma, (who said his ID number was 943210), confirmed my Aadhar card details which he already had. He said a parcel containing three passports, four pan cards, and four ATM cards was sent with my details from a plot in Dadar, West Mumbai to a Mandeep Singh in Oak Park, Toronto. He even recited this Mandeep Singh’s phone number)

Sharma then said that it seemed that I was the subject of a scam where my Aadhar and PAN Card details had been misappropriated and asked me to speak to the officers in Dadar Police Station to sort the situation out. As I live in Delhi, he offered to connect me directly to what he said was the emergency hotline number for Dadar Police Station.

I spoke to an officer called Bhupendra Nagar, who gave me the landline number of the police station so that I could verify that I was speaking to the right person (this was on his initiative – it had not occurred to me to verify this). He then called me on Whatsapp video, asked me to lock my doors and do a 360 degree video to show him no one was around, so he could be sure nobody had coerced me into making this complaint. He then asked me to send him pictures of me holding my Aadhar card and PAN Card on the WhatsApp number he had called from.

I believed him and then complied.
