Hyderabad: The Cyber Crime Police arrested a person accused of job fraud and brought him from Delhi to Hyderabad on Saturday.
The police said that a complainant was cheated to a tune of Rs 96,563 by Sachin Yadav and his associates when he was searching for a job. The complainant said that some unknown persons claiming to be from Naukri.com called him and offered him a job. He was lured to transfer a total amount of Rs 96,563 through e-wallet. After transferring the money, he found their mobile numbers switched off after which he registered a case with the police.
“The accused and his associates have been cheating job seekers by contacting them over mobile phones and emails. The accused procure the information on unemployed persons and offer them jobs in exchange for money through e-wallets. After collecting the money, they would switch off their mobile phones. So far, the accused might have cheated many in the pretext of providing jobs across the country,” said the police.
The police seized a laptop, eight mobile phones, two routers, two debit cards, and six SIMs from the accused. Sachin Yadav was remanded for judicial custody.
The police requested the general public to not believe in such type of job offers as genuine companies would not collect money to provide a job.
