Crime Branch begins probe into fake job racket
New Delhi: Delhi Police Crime Branch has registered a case and started probing a case against fraudsters for running fake job racket in the name of a private security company.
Police said that scamsters were using web portal, e-mail id and phone calls to dupe job seekers of their hard-earned money. The investigating agency said that the security company filed a complaint alleging that fraudsters are misrepresenting themselves as recruitment agents of the company (complainant) and offering senior security job.
Police further added that the fraudsters asked candidates to deposit amounts in three categories (registration, verification, procedure charge). The cheaters took online payment from targeted victims. They also prepared fake offer letter by using the fabricated letterhead of the company. Later the targeted candidate reached the company office for inquiry related to the job. The company officials apprised the candidate that the letter was fake.
