GUWAHATI: Assam’s refiner Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL) said a fake website has been created in its name through which money is being collected from candidates in the name of providing “jobs” in the company.
As per reports, the firm has already lodged an FIR with the police and filed a complaint with the National Cyber Crime Reporting portal, NRL General Manager (Corporate Communication) Madhuchanda Adhikari said in a statement.
“Unscrupulous elements have created a fake website bearing URL www.nrlindia.in of Numaligarh Refinery Limited by replicating NRL’s authentic Corporate Website www.nrl.co.in to defraud money from unsuspecting candidates for fake vacancies advertised under Career section,” she added.
Meanwhile, the company requested everyone to be cautious and not pay any money on the fraudulent website against non-existent jobs.
Notably, the fake website features a link named ‘Career’ on the Main Menu of the Home page.
Clicking on the link takes one to the page where 3,235 fake vacancies are being advertised seeking details of the candidates and redirecting them to the Payment Application page for making a Rs 1,000 online transfer for their application.
