All Indian nationals in Greece are advised to be careful of telephone calls from fraudsters posing as officials of the Embassy and offering to help. Following points may please be noted:
i) To make believe, frauds manipulate telecom equipment to make Embassy’s telephone number appear on your cellphone;
ii) Frauds use a standard message that local Government is going to deport or arrest people who have given false information about their immigration status.
iii) An offer of help is made by asking to transfer money to the account of a lawyer hired by the Embassy.
Kindly note that Embassy of India does not authorize any company/lawyer for making such contacts. Embassy has no role in decisions relating to visa/immigration status of foreign nationals in Greece.
