New Delhi: The DCI has issued a cautionary notice regarding a new pattern of fraudulent calls from unknown persons posing as DCI officials. The council has issued a warning in this regard to the principal/management of the dental colleges and presidents and registrars of the state dental councils.
According to a recent notice, the apex council received reliable inputs about a fraud which is underway using different mobile numbers and thus duping the dental authorities.
Adding details about the modus operandi of the fraudsters, the council alerted the authorities that unknown persons are calling from numerous mobiles pretending to be the executive members, acting president and secretary of the dental council of India and demanding unethical favours and information.
Therefore, the apex council has now issued an advisory to the authorities to not get misled by the fake calls and avoid falling prey to the fraudsters.
