A 28 year-old Matunga resident has filed a complaint of cheating after being duped by a gang who gave him a fake job opportunity and conned him to the tune of Rs 1.30 lakhs. The victim identified as Yogesh Rathod had alleged that after he created his job profile on Quikr.com, four men approached him and offered a job at Indigo airlines but in the name of fees, they cheated him without returning the said amount.

According to Matunga police, Rathod created his profile in December last year and on February 2019, one of the accused who introduced himself as Ashish called him and told that his resume has been shortlisted for the job of a ticketing executive at Indigo airlines at Pune but to get the selection process started, he needs to pay some amount.“It all started after the gang demanded their first amount. After Ashish, another people named Sidharth, Raj and Abhishek called up Rathod as airlines executive and started asking for money for some reason. All the accused tried to make money from him in the name of obtaining reference ID, interview charges, document verification, making identity cards and passport, job insurance, family insurance, penalty and so on. The accused provided different bank account numbers to Rathod and asked him to deposit small tokens of money at different time intervals in a bid to avert suspicion,” said a police officer.

Rathod also alleged that the quadruple posed as genuine executives so there was no room of doubt. As per police reports, Rathod used to run out of money and when he told this to the accused men over phone, they said that if he fails to deposit the money, his name for the job shall be cancelled so out of fear of losing the opportunity, Rathod did as per directed. The accused told Rathod that all his money shall be refunded to him by a cheque after he gets the job.

In small chunks, total Rs 1.30 lakhs was given to the accused and after a telephonic interview, Rathod asked for his appointment letter which was never made available to him. “Whenever he asked for his confirmation letter, the accused made some excuses which led to some suspicion. After being convinced that he was being cheated, Rathod asked for the money which too was not given to him following which he approached the police and registered a complaint. A case has been taken under section 34, 419 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code and further investigation of the matter is underway,” the officer added.
