Scamsters are estimated to have siphoned off nearly Rs 2 crore.The biggest fraud involved a Bengaluru youth falling prey to a fake placement offer at US auto major Tesla and shelling out Rs 24 lakh. Besides, 50 more complaints of job fraud involving loss of smaller amounts too were registered. Police investigation revealed that the fraudsters pick targets mainly from job portals and lure them with lucrative but fake job offers from behemoths from IT, aviation, automobile, hospitality and other sectors."The culprits register as employers or consultants in various job portals and fish out resumes of job seekers containing email IDs and cellphone numbers.

Taking it for real and as a backdoor entry to the dream job without interviews or aptitude tests, the victim transferred the money the fraudster demanded.
