According to the Gulf Times, the court found them guilty of running a fake online firm where they posted vacancies on behalf of certified companies, without the latter’s knowledge.


The crime came into light after job applicants contacted the companies with regard to the job vacancy enquiries, following which company officials came to know of the crime and thereafter, lodged a complaint with the authorities concerned.

Post investigation, it was found that the culprits had allegedly collected big amount of money from job seekers and in return, gave them fake documents bearing fake government stamps and logos, online. All such payments were carried on a money transfer agency.
