Many fraudulent recruiting agencies are reportedly extorting money from unsuspecting job seekers promising them to get them hired in some of the leading companies in the Gulf region, job seekers have often been warned before-hand about the practices of such agencies.
One such case has come forward quite recently, when Qatar based Al-Sraiya Group came to know that an agency in India is making false job offers on its behalf in India.
To rectify the issue the company has already filed a complaint with the Indian Embassy in Doha, who has reportedly forwarded the said issue to Proctor General in India for further investigations.
To make people aware about the complaint filed by the company, the embassy also posted its letter head on its official social media channels.
The letter was signed by the COO of the company, Ahmad Nasser Sraiya Al Kaabi, requesting the Indian Embassy to take stern action against the fraudulent recruiting agency and also warned candidates about falling prey to these agencies.
The company reportedly had received calls from people based in India, enquiring about the authenticity of the offers that had been made to them in the name of the company, the candidates had also been asked to deposit money with the agency. The agency that was identified by the candidates was Joy International, 1st floor, DB Road, RS Puram, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
The clarification letter from the company further added that it only deals with registered agencies in India and all the recruitment procedures are completed via the e-migrate portal of the Indian Government.
In order to improve transparency and prevent candidates from getting duped the Indian Government has made recruitment of workers through its e-migrate portal mandatory.
It is also the responsibility of the job seekers to make sure that the job offers that they receive are valid and genuine before making any payments whatsoever and it is also important that should anyone come to know about any fraudulent agencies, he/she should immediately get in touch with the authorities such that people are not duped by these fakes.
