Beware of spam calls in the name of Indian embassy officials

The Indian Embassy in Doha has warned people in Qatar to be beware of calls made by scammers claiming to be of the embassy.
In a tweet, the embassy urged the people not fall for such calls, which are intended to extract personal information.
"Beware of spoof call masquerading as Embassy Officials (sic)," the embassy said in a tweet on Thursday.
One of the ways spam callers mask their identities is by “spoofing” local numbers. If a number looks familiar, you’re probably more likely to pick up the call.
The embassy called on people not to disclose personal details such as passport or bank account numbers through the phone. It also urged them to report suspicious calls at +974-442 557 77 or at cons.doha@mea.gov.in.
