Online frauds have been on the rise in recent times, and the case of a 33-year-old man from Mumbai, who lost Rs 3.42 lakh while looking for an online part-time job, is a classic example of how scammers operate.

According to the police, the man came across an advertisement for a job at Amazon on Facebook on April 3. On clicking the advertisement, he received the WhatsApp number of a woman who identified herself as Marry, a hiring manager for Amazon. She allegedly asked the complainant if he was looking for a part-time job. When he inquired about the work, she told him that the candidates needed to work towards increasing the sale of the company’s online platform by completing various tasks, the police said.

The fraudsters then asked the man to create an account and complete some tasks, promising him a good income. After creating an account, the complainant first received an Rs 80 bonus, and then he was asked to make a Rs 200 recharge and buy a product. Following this, Rs 450 got deposited in his system’s account (eWallet). Trusting the company, the man continued to complete one task after another, buying their products, making recharges, etc., spending a total of Rs 2.4 lakh.

Within a few days, the man had earned a total of Rs 5.13 lakh, and he could see the profit in his account (eWallet). But when he tried to transfer this money into his bank account, he got an error message saying his request was declined. When he asked Marry, she told him that if he wished to withdraw the money, he would have to pay 20 percent tax or else he would not be able to withdraw the money, the police said.

Since the man did not have the money, he mortgaged his family’s gold and used it to pay the 20 per cent tax (Rs 1.02 lakh). However, even after this, when he tried to transfer money from his eWallet to his bank account, his account got deactivated. He then realized that he had been duped. By then, he had already lost Rs 3.42 lakh.
