Etisalatanonumous calls from isd code +92

Dear Sir,
My name is Gopa Dutta. I use the mobile number [protected] which is in the name of my husband, Mr. Kishan Dutta.
I have been receiving calls from unknown numbers with ISD code +92 which is for Pakistan. These calls are from different numbers with the same ISD code +92. My husband uses mobile no: [protected]. Even he has received such calls on various occasions. So have many of our acquaintances and a string of emails warning about these calls is doing rounds on the internet now. I can produce these emails, if need be.
To substantiate my statement, I have received a call on 19/01/2009 at 17.49 hrs from +[protected] and again two calls on 03/02/09 at 18.49 and 18.52 hours from +[protected].
When some of us, including my husband, tried calling the numbers from where they received these calls, they were invariably told that they have won a 1 million gift voucher from “Etisalat’. When this is dismissed as rubbish, the person on the other end starts using an abusive language that would put a decent person to shame.
More so, these calls come through at odd hours too
It is obvious from the foregoing that the database of Etisalat customers is available to these callers and they are not only harassing your customers, but also maligning your name.
I request you to probe this matter and resolve this issue. I am sure, you would have received more complaints about this issue.
Awaiting your quick response.
Best Regards.
Gopa Dutta.

    Dear,

    Regarding your above complaint. Please keep in mind that these people who are calling they are calling annonamus numbers without having a data base or anything of that kind. Also make sure that you haven't listed your phone number in the directory cause as you know it is available for anyone who enters etislat. Rest asure that know one is using etisalat data base and as long as this person who is calling is outside the country no one can reach him or do anything to him.

    It's the same thing happening with Yahoo and MSN Email Accounts, did anyone of the people sending fraud emails get cought.

    Regards

    Dear Ppl,

    I have been getting anonymous calls from numbers starting from +92 which I understand is from Pakistan. I got the first call in the afternoon once in the first week of December and have received a call today ie 06th Dec'09 at 15.30 hrs.

    While, I dont have any clue as to how they have my number, it seems this problem is persistent with many other customers as well. Hope concerned people take necessary action.

    Hi all, This is Rahul from India. I have just recieved a missed call (at around 12:15 IST), while I was talking to my wife. The number flashed was +92 [protected]. It was only when I googled, I found this forum and also the plot and ploy of some evil-minded people based probably in Pakistan. May god grant some wisdom and may god save Pakistan.

    Hi All,
    I am also an irtel customer and twice a day I also received call from a number +[protected]. This is Pakistan's number and the person said that we have won a prize worth rupees 10 lakh. They were asking for the house address also. I know this is a fake call. They people ask about the house address or bank details... PLZ NO ONE GIVE THESE DETAILS.

    It is my request to the government to take some necessary action as these people are trying to expand their names that they can reach the common people also...

    Plz take some action... Even that person gave another number to confirm that this is a valid gift pack. That number was also from Pakistan...

    I got miss call from +92 [protected] and just when I was trying to reach this number, it clicked my mind that +92 must be of some place near to India.When I checked this number, this number is from Pakistan.
    I have heard that some people hack and misuse some information for illegal work. I request the concerned authorities to please take action for this.

    Hi all, I also got a missed call from no. +[protected], when I called back, I was told that I won a lottery, at the same time, I disconnected. My Question is why are all these calls coming to AirTel subscribers only, and what is AirTel doing regarding this . Pl feel free to contact at [protected]@gmail.com

    Even I got a call today around 2.30 p.m. from +[protected] and the person spoke in Hindi / Urdu and was claiming that I have won lottery worth 10 laks. He tried calling me 2-3 times and later switched off the phone.
