Warning Signs and Vigilance: Shruti Chaturvedi’s Guide to Avoid Job Scams

Shruti Chaturvedi, an entrepreneur and content creator, recently shared a video on X (formerly Twitter), enlightening viewers about crucial markers that can help job seekers identify and steer clear of fraudulent schemes.

In the video, she stressed that any demand for payment in exchange for a job opportunity should be seen as a red flag for potential fraud.

Chaturvedi cautioned against falling prey to individuals or companies requesting money for employment, emphasizing that legitimate jobs are secured through hard work, not financial transactions.

She highlighted the tactics employed by fraudsters, such as flaunting extravagant lifestyles, a substantial social media following, and positive media coverage, as deceptive measures to lure job seekers into their scams.

Explaining further, she dismantled other ploys used by scammers, such as promises of coaching, claiming that the money invested could be recovered within the initial months of employment.

She asserted that these claims were unequivocally fraudulent and urged job seekers not to succumb to such enticing yet deceitful propositions.

Addressing the vulnerability of unemployed individuals, Chaturvedi reminded viewers that being jobless did not warrant exploitation.

She advised vigilance against sweet-talking scammers and encouraged individuals not to get ensnared in fraudulent traps, even if it meant a prolonged period of unemployment.

Providing tips to distinguish between genuine and fraudulent employers, she outlined the legitimate process: candidates should expect an official offer or joining letter on the company’s letterhead upon selection.

She urged job seekers to verify the company’s registration on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website. Moreover, she stressed the importance of receiving official correspondence from the company regarding salary, payment schedules, and job responsibilities.

Chaturvedi concluded by cautioning against organizations demanding payments for training purposes, categorically labeling them as fraudulent.

She underscored the significance of staying cautious and vigilant to avoid falling victim to such scams.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) announced its identification and blockage of over 100 websites engaged in job fraud earlier this month.

These platforms were found to facilitate organized illegal investment-related activities by overseas entities using digital advertising, chat messengers, and rented accounts to execute job scams.
