The Criminal Investigation Department(CID) of the Assam police has shut down a call centre which has illegally obtained the personal information of US citizens. The call centre was run by one Rajesh khan and 37 employees who were working under him, all of whom were charged for criminal conspiracy, fraud and other offences read with the section 66 of the Information technology act, 2000.

According to the report of the CID, the employees from the call centres used Voice Over Internet Protocol, which is a technology that enables audio communications through the internet. Using this technology the employees of the call centre called several citizens of the US, claiming that they were calling from the US social security centres and that they were aware of the crimes that the citizens committed. Some people who fell prey to this gave out their Social Security Number(SSN) which enabled them to obtain bank details of the US citizens. Using this info they withdrew cash from their account fraudulently
