As jobs are shrinking in our Government/public/private sector departments and lot of students are passing out from many professional colleges, the fake job racketeers are booming in our country. Nowadays, our youth are desperate to find a job and their desperation makes them prey to fake job racketeers. Generally, these Job racketeers exploit the big brands like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro etc. They take money from candidates of small town and rural areas; sometimes they show you the offer letters in a fake letterhead of reputed companies. I know many people cheated in this way showing me the fake offer letters of big IT companies such as TCS, WIPRO L&T etc. These job racketeers are fishing out your personal details from many reputed job portals such as Naukri.com, Monster etc. and exploit you later. Sometimes these fake racketeers make lookalike website of reputed company with similar domain name.
How to detect a fake job offer?
All the companies follow certain rules in recruitment in India. Under no circumstances the candidate is asked to pay in any form for their candidature. Genuine professional Recruiters and Companies always use their official email IDs for correspondence. If you receive a job offer from a third party mail such as G Mail and Yahoo,etc, it is suspicious. If you receive a job offer from a Company, first, check its authenticity with different public channels and check with those who working with the same company. No genuine recruiters/Companies ask your Bank details, PAN details etc.
Recently, companies started issuing appointment letters with QR code, which can be scanned on your mobile phone. Sometimes, offer letter can be verified in Companies website verification page. Some companies turned to digital signatures for differentiate the original with fake one.
Some of the reputed and reliable sites are www.naukri.com, www.monsterindia.com, www.indeed.co.in, www.timesjobs.com, www.shine.com, www.careerbuilder.co.in etc.
