Haryana Police busts fake online job racket
Chandigarh, May 5 (IANS) A special team of Cyber Crime Cell in Haryana’s Faridabad has arrested four people from a fake call centre who were involved in an organized online job fraud to cheat unemployed youth, particularly south Indians, a Haryana Police spokesman said here on Saturday.
Police recovered mobile phones, laptops and computer systems from their possession.
The arrested have been identified as Naveen Gandhi of Faridabad, Abhishek Singh alias Pankaj, a native of Uttar Pradesh presently residing in Faridabad, Harpreet Singh of Delhi and Dheeraj Singh Mehta of Uttrakhand, living in Delhi, the spokesman said.
The accused used to take record of applicants from job portal ‘shine.com’ to contact them on phone promising a job in airlines and hotels at abroad and duped them by taking money into their bank accounts as fees, he added.
“They used to target south Indians mostly so that anyone could not trace them due to far distances,” the spokesman said.
He said that accused had also created a commercial mail identity in the name of ‘jetairlines.com’ to cheat innocent people. “For this purpose, they also used Jet Airways logo while sending emails to the applicants,” he added.
A case under IT Act has been registered against them at police station Faridabad, the spokesman said.
