“We have received such complaints that the organisation’s name is being used by fraudsters to dupe job aspirants.
“We have alerted the Cyber Police here and have advised candidates to verify such job offers with us before making any financial transaction,” said Farhan A of L&T’s HR Department.
Officials probing cyber crimes say that emails claiming to be from reputed companies, aimed at duping job seekers are on the rise.
“We have received around 15 such complaints over the last few months. In many cases, the perpetrators are based outside India leaving no scope to trace them,” said N Vinayakumaran Nair, Assistant Commissioner, Hi-Tech Crime Enquiry Cell.
“If the recipients of such mails are job seekers, they should crosscheck details with the company concerned. However, If there are mails related to online lottery operated from abroad or other phishing attempts, it should be totally ignored,” Vinayakumaran Nair said.
