Hi Everyone,

My name is AK Singh and I'm a post graduate , tech savvy professional.

I want to raise the concern of all members of corporate fraternity on a serious issue of fraud mails of employment offer under the goodwill of best companies like tata group , L&T , Deloitte , PSU companies , Kingfisher etc to name a few. You will be surprised to know that i have a collection of 100+ such forged mails under the name of many big companies.

I recently came across a TOI article stating the Cyber Crimes have increased to 123% in comparison to last year 2012-13 and up to 24,000+ crores in India for 2013-2014 so the matter is serious more than we think and out of those 24,000 crores 30% are cyber frauds of employment and job offer/lottery mails.I already brought to notice of such incidents to few companies last year and what reply i got was that an FIR already had been registered and a notification was put of the website , but even after a year passed i haven't come across any news pertaining arrest of any such fraudster,

It's disturbing and i feel sorry for the victims of such cyber crimes, you see an unemployed youth or a corporate aspirant opens a mail with so much hope and the fraudsters hit their bulls' eye.

I , after interacting with members of HR fraternity of few Indian companies came to know that even IT or ITES companies are unable to tackle the issue.So i thought of sharing this issue with all and what are the possible solution you think.

After taking input from all of you for a month i'll be preparing a report and sending it to government for consideration.

Also i am attaching herewith , one of the most recent fraud mail i received for job in one of the company's of TATA Group...see, analyze, discuss and enlighten with the solution to catch the fraudsters. I already traced the E-Mail IP and ISP and have already sent a mail to the the company.

Sharing with you...

This is the mail
