Fake Job offers is a big scandal in India. In our country, the unemployment rate is very high so there is a chance of fake offers and the people are deceived at a high rate.
The promises of fake agencies:
One should remember about the fake offers from the agencies. Sometimes, with some agencies, it is fine to have the offers but such agencies are very few. Most of the agencies have been offering them on paper and in reality, they have not been providing. It is better to have a review of an agency and should not offer money to them. Most of the placement agencies, get the payment from the company they recruit for.
Apart from agencies, fake job provider emails us and tells that. They say that they need some registration money to be paid. They claim that they are from corporate and very big companies. We should check the email address because the domain of any company would come up with their company’s name itself.
Be very careful:
Even NDTV journalist, Nidhi Razdhan also fell into the trap of a fake job offer. Some people claimed that they were the recruiters from “Harvard University” She believed in them when the fake HRs of the fake Harvard University set different rounds and asked her to join the organization by 2020 September / October and again they postpone it to January 2021. Later Nidhi realized that it was a fraud call and filed a case. Unfortunately, Nidhi resigned from her job as well by falling prey to this online phishing.
How a common man can identify if it is a true or fake job offer?
1. Check the email: If you get an email, with the offer, then check the domain name.
2. Don’t give money: Agencies are being paid by the companies so, if anyone approaches you that, and asks you for money to be deposited, don’t believe them.
3. Check if your profile is there: Nidhi Razdhan was offered for an Assistant Professor in Journalism but, that particular position is not available with Harvard University. This could happen to us, so we should be careful
4. Do not share your personal details.
The above said ways of cheatings may happen, so we should be very careful.
