Mumbai: The cyber crime investigation cell (CCIC) of the city crime branch is probing a case against a person who, posing as an employee of a Godrej company, sent emails to several job seekers, asking them to deposit Rs 6,850 in an account for a job at a new Godrej plant, with salaries ranging from Rs 30,000 to Rs three lakh per month.
P B Rao, assistant general manager (Industrial Relation) of Godrej and Boyce Manufacturing Company Ltd, filed a complaint stating that someone was trying to dupe people using their company's name. The email states, "Your bio-data has been selected for our new plant (manufacturing of refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines). The company offers you the post of an executive/manager in your respective department.
The sender further stated that the recruitments are being done for new plants across the country. Candidates were asked to deposit Rs 6,850, to be refunded after the interview, in an account at Hyderabad Bank of India.
Godrej stated that their recruitment office was flooded with calls after the fraud. "The mails asking candidates to deposit money in an account against their so-called selection in the so-called 'Godrej Electronics India Ltd’ are fake, they said. Police say they will initiate action once they get the details about the mail’s origin from the server.
