Warning for Fraudulent Telephone Calls

 It has been brought to the notice of the Embassy that some fraudsters are spoofing Embassy of India telephone lines to make calls aimed at cheating people. These calls are shown as being from the Embassy telephone numbers (+30 2107216227/210 7216481).  These fraudsters are trying to extort money from Indian nationals by inter alia claiming that there are errors in their passports, visa forms, immigration forms etc. which could be rectified by paying money, and at the same time warning that the so called errors, if not rectified, could result in deportation/legal problems of the individual to India or their imprisonment in Greece.

2. This is to confirm that no officials from the Embassy make any telephone calls seeking personal information from any Indian or foreign nationals except if any additional documentation is required from an existing applicant.

3. The Embassy of India hereby advises members of the public not to entertain any suspicious telephone calls made in the name of Embassy of India. They are also advised not to reveal any personal information like credit card details etc or transfer any money in response to such calls. They may bring such matters to the notice of the Embassy at the email ID:
