HUBBALLI: A man was cheated of Rs 1.65 lakh on the pretext of offering an online work from home job.
Google had carried an advertisement of a DRD Solution company offering a work from home job. The complainant had apparently applied for the job and came to an agreement on the work with the company over mobile phone calls.
Some days later, the company said that the complainant had not completed the work within the deadline and they had filed a case in a Gujarat court against him. They added that he would have to pay a fine to avoid the case, which scared the complainant.
The company took the bank details of the company and got Rs 1.65 lakh transferred from his account in multiple phases, said the Hubballi cyber police.
