Further, these agents faking as representatives of Embassy of Kuwait, New Delhi are asking those who contact them to deposit big amount of Indian Rupees to the under-mentioned bank account towards mandatory attestation fee charged by concerned Indian universities and Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) for verification by using a fake email ID: firstname.lastname@example.org. The details of the fraudulent bank account are as below:
Account No : 7860201005987
Account Name : Mr. Laltanpuia
Name of the Bank : Syndicate Bank
IFSC Code : SYNB0007960
The Embassy of Kuwait, New Delhi has confirmed that they have not asked anyone to deposit money in any bank account for the above purpose and that the email ID email@example.com does not belong to them.
