German cops in India to probe data-breach case

Dwaipayan Ghosh reports:

The CID, along with German cops, is raiding several places in Salt Lake and New Town for the past 48 hours in connection with a fraud worth several crores involving a German firm.

The accused had allegedly set up an IT firm in Sector V and was providing technical support to the German company.


Around 1000 German citizens have allegedly been duped by the BPO so far.

This is the second report like this I’ve seen/noted recently. The previous report involved rogue Wipro employees scamming TalkTalk customers.

But it seems that there have been more incidents that didn’t always make the news or my newsfeed here. Gnosh also reports:

The Bidhannagar and Kolkata cyber cells have recorded six different FIRs in this regard in the past six months.

One of the cases was reported on this site in June, 2015.
