Mangalore, August 19: A youth has lost Rs 9,500 after falling prey to a fake job racket. Hence it shows the increasing of fake job rackets by taking undue advantage of the youth who are in need of a job after their graduation.
One of the youth had registered his name and had uploaded his resume in one of the reputed job portals and on August 12, youth received an email to his email id from one Dhanraj Mehta under the letter head of M/s Larsen & Turbo Ltd offering him Executive Manager Post. The email had also provided details of vacancy and fixed the interview date on September 2 in Mumbai. Hence,
The youth had believed the mail and deposited the amount to SB account number 33019304823 of State bank of India in the name of Mahesh Kumar. But, when parents of the youth suspected the genuineness of the person, tried to contact the Mr. Mehta on his mobile number +91-8937869943 and enquired about the above issue, he informed that he has received the amount and disconnected the call without giving further details. Though they tried to contact him repeatedly they got a busy tone and now suspect that Mr. Dhanraj Mehta along with Mr. Mahesh Kumar were systematically cheating youngsters after promising jobs in the name of top companies. It is suspected that many other students have been cheated the same way and trapped in this job racket and the police need to look into the matter and give the justice to the victims.
