New insurance renewal scam

My health insurance policy is due for renewal and yesterday and i received a call from someone who claimed to be from ICICILombard . The agent confirmed my details and also my policy details which matched. He then shared the premium quote which matched with the renewal notice i had already received in email days ago. I told him i was comparing quotes and would decide in a few days.

He then said that since i had not made a claim in over 5 years they can offer me a discount of 20% on the premium. I said fine, please send me a revised quote and he immediately sent me an email which looked official & had the renewal notice attached as well. He also sent me the payment link on Whatsapp.

The link to pay via payment gateway in the email was not working. Only the link to pay via UPI was working. This made me suspicious, and the UPI ID was also not seeming genuine. Then i saw the sender domain on the email and it was a parked domain '' During this time the agent via WhatsApp kept following up, urging me to pay asap as the discount would expire. I told the fellow he's been found out and i know he's a scam artist. more

Timely detection saved your money. In public and general interest, report this ussue to cybercell, ad well to ICICI detection cell for further action.
