On Tuesday (15th February, 2011), the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cautioned general public against fictitious offers of receiving money from abroad. The central bank said that such transactions are illegal and the people should not fall in the trap.

The RBI advisory said:

'Members of public have been cautioned against making any remittance towards participation in such schemes/offers from unknown entities since such remittances are illegal,'.

'Any resident in India collecting and effecting/remitting such payments directly or indirectly outside India is liable to be proceeded against for contravention of the Foreign Exchange Management Act,'.

The central bank has also advised the general public to immediately file a complaint with local police or cyber crime authorities against such fictitious offers.
