Fresno Pair Accused of Using India Call Center to Facilitate Loan Modification Fraud

As a consumer, has this ever happened to you?

Your phone, computer or other service isn’t working properly. In order to get “help,” you are forced to use the vendor’s overseas call center, where foreign call operators mightily try to pass as American using American names despite having heavily accented English.

In a unique twist to outsourcing, Fresno residents Sharanjit Kaur, 36, and Baljit Singh, 47, are accused of setting up a call center in India to run their business that has been accused of loan modification fraud, among other things. The two have been indicted by a federal grand jury on 46 counts of conspiracy, mail and wire fraud, and international money laundering. They allegedly opened several companies, with names such as Consumer Financial Services, Consumer Credit Repair, and Client Financial Services, that claims to be able to provide debt settlement services, credit repair services and low-interest credit cards. Consumers who were lured into the alleged scams were often instructed to mail monthly checks for the services, none of which were performed.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner’s office is prosecuting the case, which was investigated by President Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force.
