Debojyoti “David” Dey, the founder of Team iNSANE Esports, has found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Guwahati Police’s Crime Branch, in a coordinated operation, has apprehended David as a mastermind in a widespread and sophisticated call center scam that has spanned the past two years.
Team iNSANE Esports, a renowned name in the Indian esports community, particularly in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), now faces an unexpected and potentially damaging connection to illegal call center activities. The arrest is a crucial step forward in the ongoing crackdown on these fraudulent call centers operating in the shadows of Guwahati and beyond.
Guwahati Police Arrested Team iNSANE Esports Founder in Call Centre Bust
This investigation has focused on a secretive network of deceitful call centers that posed as tech support providers. They employed an array of fraudulent tactics, including intrusive pop-up ads and enticing toll-free numbers, designed to convince unsuspecting victims that they were reaching out to legitimate service providers. Once they established contact, these criminals gained remote access to their victims’ devices and forced them into believing that their personal information or bank account details were at risk. This ultimately tricked them into making payments in the form of bitcoin or gift vouchers.
The law enforcement agencies launched a meticulously planned series of raids, targeting eight different locations across Guwahati, including residential premises, commercial buildings, and shopping centers. Inside, they discovered not only evidence of the elaborate scam but also several individuals, some of them young women aged between 21 and 25, who were allegedly part of the operation. Additionally, alongside these arrests, the police seized a massive amount of equipment, comprising numerous desktop and laptop computers, an array of mobile phones, and a plethora of electronic devices.
David’s arrest has startled the entire esports community. His name was synonymous with the growth and success of iNSANE Esports, and his contributions to the gaming industry were well-known. However, his alleged involvement in this extensive call center scam raises pertinent questions about his activities beyond the esports arena.
This unexpected twist has cast a shadow of doubt over whether these illegal activities were in any way connected to iNSANE Esports, a matter that will undoubtedly be scrutinized closely in the days to come. For now, the gaming world waits in anticipation, hoping for clarity amidst the uncertainty surrounding one of its prominent figures.
