Members are requested to be careful

I have come across an advertisement in The Navbharat Times dtd. 13/03/2015, a copy of which is attached. I have every reason to believe that the advertisement is fake and hence brought it to the notice of Delhi Police Commissioner. The content of the mail are reproduced for the members as awareness and precautionary. Please convey the same to as many people as possible.
"I have come across an advertisement in NBT dtd. 13/03/2015, a copy of which is attached.
Looking at the modus-operandii, I have reasons to believe that such advertisements are fraudulent and requires your immediate intervention to ensure that the public is not trapped with their fake business. May be an advertisement in the newspaper cautioning people to stay away from such schemes.
The modus operandii which has come to the notice is that an advertisement titled "Chehra Pahachano" induces public to respond. After few minutes a call is received by the participant from them saying that the participant has won the prize in the lucky draw. The participant would be asked for a choice as to whether he/she would like to
1. Get the vehicle or
2. Get the cash in lieu of
In case of option No. 1, he is asked to deposit a sum of Rs. 18,000/- in their account and in case of option No. 2, he is asked to deposit 1% of the value of the vehicle which is being told as Rs.15,500/- ( value being Rs. 15.5 Lakhs) to be deposited in their account. When the participant ask them to deduct 1% amount from the value of vehicle and pay balance 99% of the value to the participant, the call is disconnected.
The option No.2 leads to believe that the advertiser is adapting to fraudulent practices.
In view of above I seek your intervention in nabbing the cheaters and a suitable advise to the public through an advertisement of Police. NBT should be able to disclose the name and address of the advertiser and need to be held accountable. A fake call by Delhi Police could be of help to trace them.
With regards" more

Dear Mr. Sanjay Sharma Ji, Thanks for your comments. Yes it is not only the duty of police but an individual should also need to be alert and that was the purpose of the post. I partially agree to the role of RWAs as most of the RWAs have their own agenda. I had offered my services to one of the RWA to connect me with those residents who are facing problem with DHBVN in Faridabad. Two reminders have not yielded any result for the past more than six months. Sorry this could not be a case with every RWA. more  
Thanks for sharing the information. It is not responsibility of police only. We have to educate our society for such frauds, thru RWA. more  
Thanks for informing the police; not sure if they will act. Or even if they can! A Lawyer would know better.
Every caller will be informed that they have won. Each will be asked to deposit a small sum of money for 'registration'. Desire for acquisition will drive people to willingly give a 1000/ or so amount to get a car worth several lakhs. Once a sufficient amount is collected the numbers will become unresponsive. more
