Fraud Alert: Beware of Fake IELTS certificate racket

The below fraud email was received by a person in Uttar Pradesh who fortunately contacted MG for help. It is clearly a case of fraud. The content of the email are such. Beware do not deposit money in personal bank accounts of anyone on the basis of emails received. Beware of phishing and similar scams. This person in Uttar Pradesh would not have been able to recover his money from this fraud from Mizoram. Apparently this fraud also had the mobile number of the prospective victim and kept calling him claiming they are calling from the British Council. We ask the person to refer to   https://www.idp.com/india/studyabroad for correct information about IELTS. There is no short cuts to a good IELTS score and to get a visa do your pay touts and agents on the basis of emails and phone calls.
