Police spokesman said that the main accused Digvijay Rajput and Krunal Sharma with their common intention set up  a fake call centre at Morjim and employed people and procured personal detail of citizen of United State through illegal means and by using computers and virtual private network contacted their victims through interactive voice response system by impersonating as officers of social security administration and law enforcement authority of the US.
