Shocking Work From Home Scam Revealed: This Is How Unemployed Youths Were Robbed
The Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) unit of the Delhi Police said on Sunday that it had cracked a phony work-from-home (WFH) job racket and detained four person.
“We received complaints that websites like https://theresumesearch.com, https://www.jobsearchnet.in and https://resumetofill.com were engaged in cheating people by promising them work-from-home jobs,”
DCP (IFSO) K P S Malhotra said.
Who Are These Fraudsters? Did You Get Similar Threat Calls?
These fraudsters looted money from the innocents. They provide impossible tasks and give a deadline, now if someone doesn’t complete the task within the deadline , the fraudsters force the innocent to pay the said amount.
A search of the National Cybercrime Reporting Portal revealed that there had been more than 60 complaints filed by various victims.
According to the officials who carried out the investigation, the fraudsters first create fraudulent job portals and by this process they collect resumes of people looking for data entry and work-from-home jobs.
During the inquiry, a squad led by ACP (IFSO) Raman Lamba apprehended four persons in Delhi, including a woman. Rohit Kumar, the website’s registrant, Mohit Singh, and Tarun Kumar were identified. Tarun and the woman, whose identity was withheld, were both telecallers.
“Rohit had created these websites and, then, started calling unemployed people for data entry jobs,” the officer said.
What If Someone Failed To Complete The Task?
Now if you do not complete the task , you will be forced to pay the said amount as per the agreement.
Not just this,the fraudsters keep the audacity to demand more money by sending legal notices and threatening innocent people searching for jobs.
“Job seekers are made to sign legal agreements that if they fail to complete the work on time, they would have to pay a penalty. They are then given impossible tasks,”
An investigator said.
