Suspected fraud by GBIC

On 30th June 2020 I received a phone call from Ajay Verma mobile number 8800487160 purporting to be from Lokpal office, Bhubaneshwar regarding an insurance policy I am holding. He was speaking in Hindi and asked whether I received a letter sent on or about 30th March 2020. I told him that a lockdown was imposed due to Corona and I had not received any letter since then. He said that a claim amount of 3,25,000 penalty had been recovered from the insurance company and to contact Mr. Kamal Kant Batra (mobile number 09560613247) at Hyderabad office of GBIC for claiming the same.

When I contacted Batra, he sent me an image of the letter purportedly sent by GBIC on their letterhead in chaste Hindi, signed by Avinash D Sehgal, Senior Manager. The letter asked me to submit a copy of the insurance policy and other documents at the Lokpal court together with the requisite fees. I informed Batra that the lockdown in Mumbai had been extended to 31 July. He then asked me to submit the same online. The letter reads as follows:

I suspected something was not alright, and I told Batra to donate the amount to PM Cares fund. The department seemed to have my residential address as well as my mobile number. This is for your information and necessary action.

  6. I got a call from a person saying that he is speaking from LIC service department, and told me that the broker has claimed the 70% of the bonus associated to my LIC policies. He advised me to complaint against LIC in beema lokpal, Next day a person telling his name KK Bhattacharya from Beema Lokpal from the mobile number 8700422556 and told me that I have to purchase a new policy of the company which will recover the whole money of my LIC policies along with the bonus and agent commission. Next day a person Mr Ajay Kumar contacted me from the mobile number 7417343651 representing himself as a broker on my LIC policies and asked me withdraw the case from beema lokpal, when I refused to do so , he threatened me that he will spoil my all the money related to the LIC policies. I told this to Bhattacharya, Then KK Bhattacharya washed my brain that he blocked his broker code and the game starts, and Mr. Bhattacharya issued me a Edelweiss Tokio life Insurance policy of Rupees 52500/annual and told that this money will be returned me by the lokpaal. Then next day a person representing himself from GBIC Mr. Kuldeep contacted me from the number 8218088139 and asked me to purchase another policy to get the UIN number for the claim the amount from LIC INDIA against the case and told that it is mandatory as per new rules by IRDAI, he said that a bonus amount will pe paid to me against this UIN rest of amount will be paid later by IRDAI . And then I told to Mr KK Bhattacharya about this. After some time Bhattacharya contacted me again and said that as per new rule I have to purchase a new policy and a policy from Bharti AXA Life Insurance Company with premium amount Rupees 143161/ annual. It is going on for two or three days they are saying me that the payment file is sent to IRDAI for the payment of bonus amount. I contacted both persons regularly, but their reply remain same that file has been sent and it is under process. Then a new person Mr. Rohit contacted me from the mobile number 9990893698 representing himself from LIC INDIA, and my my file came to LIC office for the claim and asked me that as my claim amount is more than 15 Lakh therefore I have to submit NOC, to make a NOC he advise me to either fom government or from insurance sector. he said that NOC by insurance is refundable but if I go through the government it in non refundable. Then he asked me to find some person other than me and my nominee to submit the NOC on behalf of me and they forced me to purchase two more policies. Then i purchased two policies from the same companies Bharti AXA Life & Edelweiss Tokio life amounting Rs 99,999/- and 52,786/- annual premiums, After that I asked to Mr KK Bhattacharya to mail me the full details of my CASE against LIC India, He send nothing to me, and now they don’t receive the call when I try to contact them. They call me later and saying the new thing that claim files from DECEMBER-2020 are pending and are under process and it will take time for the payment.
    Then I went to my hometown and visited my home branch of LIC INDIA. And I was shocked with the answer, they told me there is nothing like this and my all the policies are in force.
    Finally I was looted by the group of these people, all are fraud.
