Advisory on Fraudulent Calls 

Embassy of India
Athens
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).  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 of the individual to India or their imprisonment in Greece.

2.       This is to advise that no officials from the Embassy make such telephone calls, seeking personal information from any Indian or foreign nationals and asking for transfer of funds.
  
3.       The Embassy of India hereby advises the people not to entertain any such telephone calls made in the name of the Embassy. They are also advised not to reveal any personal information, particularly credit card, bank account details or transfer money in response to such calls. They may bring such matters to the notice of the Embassy at the email ID: hoc.athens@mea.gov.in
