Ripping off NRI - passport scam at Indian airports
04. Jul 2007 at 13:24
 
Attention all NRI at Indian Airports (I got this from a friend in India)
 
Dear All,  
 
Be Careful At the Indian Airports, This is a well organized conspiracy by Indian Immigration, Police, Customs and Air India staff with  
 
networking at all the Indian International Airports. Be watchful when ever  
 
you  
 
give your passport to Immigration/ Customs/Air India staff. The pass  
 
port can be easily tampered and can create trouble to you. They have  
 
found easy way of making money from NRIs. This is the way it works:  
 
 
 
At the time of the passenger's departure, if the passenger is not  
 
looking at the officer while he is stamping the exit, the officer very  
 
cleverly tears away one of the page from the passport. When the  
 
passenger leaves the immigration counter, the case is reported on his  
 
computer  
 
terminal with full details. Now all over India they have got full  
 
details of the passenger with Red Flag flashing on the Passport number  
 
entered by the departure immigration officer. They have made their money by  
 
doing above. On arrival next time, he is interrogated. Subject to the  
 
passenger's period of stay abroad, his income and standing etc., the  
 
price to get rid of the problem is settled by the Police and Immigration  
 
people. If someone argues, his future is spoiled because there are  
 
always some innocent fellows who think the honesty is the basis of getting  
 
justice in India ...  
 
Please advise every passenger to be careful at the airport. Whenever  
 
they hand over the passport to the counters of Air India , or  
 
immigration or the customs, they must be vigilant, should not remove eyes  
 
from  
 
the passport even if the officer in front tries to divert their  
 
attention. Also, please pass this information to all friends, media men and  
 
important politicians. Every month 20-30 cases are happening all over  
 
India to rob the NRIs the minute he lands. Similar case has happened with  
 
Aramco's Arifuddin. He was traveling with his family. They had six  
passports. They got the visa of America and decided to go via Hyderabad from  
 
Jeddah. They reached Hyderabad. Stayed about a month and left for the  
 
States. When they reached the States, the page of the American visa on  
 
his wife's passport was missing. At the time of departure from  
 
Hyderabad it was there, the whole family had to return to Hyderabad  
 
helplessly.  
 
On arrival at Bombay back, they were caught by the police and  
 
now it is over 2 months, they are running after the Police,  
 
Immigration officers and the Courts. On going in to details with him, he  
 
found  
 
out the following: One cannot imagine, neither can believe, that the  
 
Indian Immigration dept can play such a nasty game to harass the innocent  
 
passengers.  
 
All the passengers traveling to & fro India via Bombay and Hyderabad  
 
must be aware of this conspiracy. Every month 15 to 20 cases are taking  
 
place, at each mentioned airport, of holding the passengers in the  
 
crime of tearing away the passport pages. On interviewing some of them,  
 
none of them was aware of what had happened. They don't know why, when and  
 
who tore away the page from the middle of the passport. One can imagine  
 
the sufferings of such people at the hands of the immigration, police  
 
and the court procedures in India after that. The number of cases is  
 
increasing in the last 2-3 years. People who are arriving at the  
 
immigration, they are questioned and their passports are being held and they  
 
have to go in interrogations. Obviously, the conspiracy started about 2 to  
 
3 years ago, now the results are coming. Some of the Air India counter  
 
staff too is involved in this conspiracy.  
 
 
 
KINDLY SEND THIS TO AS MANY AS YOUR FRIENDS ACROSS THE WORLD AND ALSO  
 
REQUEST THEM TO CHECK THE PASSPORT AT THE CHECKING COUNTERS AND BEFORE  
 
LEAVING THE AIRPORT
