Online job fraud: Man conned of Rs 13,186

22-year-old accountant became a victim of a job fraud after being offered a job with Air India. Mukesh Prajapati came across a vacancy on job website It advertised for an accountant’s job with Air India at Ahmedabad airport.
Prajapati called up the number mentioned in the ad on June 9 and a person identified herself as Nandini asked him to pay Rs 2,100 as registration fee, which he paid. Later, a man who identified himself as Satyam Bhargav and asked him to pay Rs 5,420 as laptop charge.
Prajapati paid the money. Later when he didn’t receive any communication, he once again called Nandini and sought refund. He was asked to pay more towards cancellation and GST charges.
Despite doing so, he didn’t receive any refund and the calls went unanswered. In all, he ended up paying Rs 13,186. He then filed a complaint with Meghaninagar police on July 18.
Meghaninagar PSI RD Jadeja, said, “A letter will be sent to Air India and their reply will be sought about the advert. We are accessing all technical details of the case. Normally, crooks seek money in the name of different charges and people fall for such traps.”
