Who gives them our cell phone numbers?A few minutes before, I received a call from an unknown lady introducing herself as a trustee of some charitable organization I have never heard of. I just told her that I will get back to her. Every single day, I receive phone calls for buying credit cards, taking personal loans, debit cards, home loans and what have you!
I really wonder who gives them these numbers. Even when I am so busy with official work, these calls come from nowhere. One theory going around is that the bank officials are sometimes bribed to give the cell phone numbers ( this is unverified). Another is the Aadhar card data, which is another source of worry.
Can some Member please do tell me how our confidential information is leaked?
