Gurugram August 16
The Gurugram cyber-crime cell on Sunday busted a fake job portal and nabbed three for allegedly duping people in the name of providing jobs amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
The police said the accused had purchased job seekers data from a renowned job portal and created their own “dial4career” portal.
It was in July that the cyber cell received a complaint about the portal duping a man of Rs 13 lakh in the name of securing a job in good company amidst the ongoing slump. The investigations lead them to Hans Enclave residents Sanjay Kumar and Sonu Kumar.
The police said: “The duo, along with a UP-based accomplice, would target job seekers and make them pay a processing fee running into several lakhs in their Paytm and then go off the radar.”
The police nabbed the duo and their accomplice on Sunday and have frozen their accounts.
“There can be many victims. We are currently investigating the issue,” ACP Karan Goel said.
