Hyderabad: The cybercrime police of CCS, detective department, Hyderabad, raided two call centres in Delhi and Ghaziabad and arrested six persons involved in two online job frauds.

The arrested persons have been identified as Ravinder Kumar Pandey, Vijay Rawal, Priyanka, Amar Kumar Singh, Prakash Tiwari, and Shivam Tripati.

Hyd man cheated of Rs. 78K

In the first case, the police received a complaint from a resident of Langer House, Hyderabad, in August 2020 saying that he had fallen prey to a job scam and had been cheated to the tune of Rs. 78,000. According to the complainant, a day after he created a profile on Naukri.com he had received a call from Sharma who said he was checking his profile details. They offered the complainant a job in Tata Company. Then, they asked him to pay Rs. 2,600 as registration fee. In this way, the fraudsters asked him to deposit in total Rs. 78,000 for various charges like processing charges, verification charges, and convenience charges.

When the complainant got suspicious, he called the Naukri helpline number and was told it was a fraud case. Then he realized that he had been cheated and filed a police case.

The prime accused, Ravinder Kumar Pandey, is from Benarus in Uttar Prdesh and lives at Bindarpur in south west Delhi. He had worked as telecaller in a few call centers where he learned that they were making money by cheating people by offering them jobs and loans. About two years ago he hatched a plan to start a call centre.

Pandey along with Amar Kumar Singh, Shivam Tripati, and Prakash Tiwari started a call centre and recruited female telecallers. They decided to cheat people on the pretext of providing jobs. They collected resumes of aspirants from various job portals and offered them a job. They collected money in the guise of registration fees, processing fees, training fees, and security deposit. After collecting the money, they would stop responding to their calls.

Ravinder Kumar Pandey, Amar Kumar Singh, Shivam Tripati, and Prakash Tiwari were arrested on Saturday in connection with this case.

Fake IndiGo job

In another case, on 3 December 2020 the police received a complaint from a girl student from Mehdipatnam, Hyderabad. While searching for a job on 8 October she had received a call from a woman who introduced herself as Maryam and offered her a job as a ticketing executive in IndiGo Airlines at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. She asked the girl to pay registration fees of Rs. 2,500 which the latter did. Subsequently, she was asked to transfer a total amount of Rs. 6 lakhs in various installments towards different charges. Later, she realized she had been cheated and filed a complaint at the cyber crime police station.

Two persons, Vijay Rawal and Priyanka, were arrested in this case.
