We have written about these fake jobs before, but it appears everyone is falling for these scam emails coming from a firm called Sam Consultants.
They send email to internet users asking them to register with them against a initial fee of Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 10,000 to get a job with monthly salary of Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 50,000.
They ask applicants to deposit initial fee in a bank account in order to get the hiring process started.
We don’t know from where they get email ids of those seeking jobs, but it is assumed that fake job portals are helping them to gather email data of those who apply for jobs online.
For those who are getting emails from Sam Consultants, don’t deposit any money into banks accounts or send it through any other mean. This company is a scam and they won’t give you any job ever. Not only the Sam Consultants, but any job offering that requires initial deposit is likely to be a scam.
If you get any email from Sam Consultants, then you probably need to report it to NR3C (FIA) as well.
Here’s a sample email that is sent to random users:
