Gujarat Job Scam, Four Men Arrested in Hyderabad for Cyber Fraud Targeting Job Seekers

Hyderabad: Cyberabad police have arrested four men from Gujarat for allegedly cheating people under the pretext of offering work-from-home data entry jobs. The accused, identified as Rahul Ashok Bhai Baviskar (25), Sagar Patil (24), Kalpesh Thorat (26), and Nilesh Patil (24), were apprehended based on a complaint filed by a victim who lost Rs. 6.5 lakh in the scam.

Modus Operandi:

Established Fake Company: Baviskar set up a bogus company named “Flora Solution” and lured job seekers online with promises of data entry jobs.
Recruited Accomplices: He enlisted Sagar Patil to assist him, while Thorat and Nilesh Patil provided bank accounts for the illegal transactions.
Offered Fake Work & Extorted Money: Baviskar offered “captcha typing work” to victims and assured payment. After victims completed the work, he’d reject it, citing errors, and pressure them with fake legal notices demanding money for contract violations.
Nationwide Reach: The gang targeted job seekers across India, duping multiple victims with the same scheme.

Investigation & Arrest:

Following the victim’s complaint, police tracked down the accused in Gujarat and arrested them. During the raid, officers seized six mobile phones, a laptop, and five debit cards used in the operation.

Cyber Crime Awareness:

This incident highlights the importance of caution when seeking online job opportunities. Be wary of offers that seem too good to be true, especially those demanding upfront payments or personal information. Always research companies before applying and never share financial details with unverified sources.
