Notification of phone fraud

Recently, the IND received two notifications of phone fraud.

​Persons representing themselves as employees of the Ministry of Justice and Security  tried to cheat people out of their money that way. The victims originate from India and are student/employee. The fraudsters call using a visible 070-number.  The IND calls or with an invisible telephone number or with the number + 31880430000

What can you do?
If you are confronted with this fraud, we advise you to report to the police. The measures that can be taken to counter these scams are considered.
It must be underlined that the IND never contacts you by phone to request payment that way. Therefore, never transfer money in response to a request by phone.
