Beware of conman dishing out fake Reliance job offers
Some conman have perfected the art of deceiving gullible job seekers and are dishing out appointment letters in the name of top corporates, thus making it difficult for their prey to differentiate between what is true and false
IN THE present times of economic recession and global slowdown, be careful if your are desperate for a job. There are people in the market ready to take advantage of the gullible job seekers with false promises and non-existent job offers.
 
Some conman have perfected this art to such an extent that they are dishing out appointment letters in the name of of top corporates, thus making it difficult for their prey to differentiate between what is true and false. 

In one such startling case, a young engineer from Mumbai, Manish Tiwari was approached by a person claiming to be a senior HR executive at Reliance Industries at Jamnagar. Tiwari, a fresher just out of engineering college was asked by this executive, who gave his name as as Manish Jain, to send the scanned copies of his educational certificates, if he wanted a job at Reliance Industries in Jamnagar. On hearing this offer, an elated Tiwari sent his documents promptly to Manish Jain and waited for  the response.
 
He was asked to send the documents at
relianceindia@yahoo.co.in  and  hrdepartment@reliance.org.in.IN, which he duly did. Tiwari, however, became suspicious as soon as he found that the documents were delivered only at the Yahoo address but not at the official email address of the company. Another reason for getting suspicious was the casual manner in which his interview was conducted, he told Merinews.
 
Tiwari, however, said that he waited for Manish Jain to reply and also told him about the non-delivery of mail at the company address. To this, Jain, who now claimed to be Senior Director, Recruitment at Reliance Jamnagar replied that there was problem with Reliance website. Jain further told Manish Tiwari that he had been selected for the job and asked him to go through the offer letter and see the terms and conditions.
As soon as Tiwari received the appointment letter, it became apparent that this was a con job as there was clause asking for a bond worth Rs 24600 to be fixed. As per Jain's directions, the payment was to be made in favour of one Nitin Mitra, SBI account no: 20016780732 on July 17.
  
This clearly alarmed the young engineer, who immediately made inquiries with the Reliance at Jamnagar and found out the entire offer was fake. He also said that while he was inquiring into the issue, he talked to Jain, who again asked him to deposit the money in the said account. Talking to Merinews, Tiwari said that after he realised about the fake offer, he wanted people to become aware about the fraud being perpetrated upon young people. A lot of people would be conned in the name of Reliance and it is important that people get to know the real truth, he said.
 
He also said that despite the fact Manish Jain was claiming to be based in Jamnagar, his mobiles had Mumbai numbers.
 
The HR department of Reliance Industries, when contacted by Merinews in Mumbai said that there was no person with such name and designation within the company. They also asked to check out the same with Jamnagar office to ensure the veracity of such person. In Jamnagar, an official of Reliance Industries, denied the existence of any such person and said that it was not possible for someone to ask for money in lieu of a job.
 
When Merinews tried to contact Manish Jain, both his mobile phones were switched off.
