NEW DELHI: India has issued an advisory regarding fake job rackets in Thailand targeting IT skilled youths for the post of Digital Sales and Marketing Executives.

“Instances of fake job rackets offering lucrative jobs to entice Indian youths for the posts of 'Digital Sales and Marketing Executives' in Thailand by dubious IT firms involved in call-centre scam and crypto-currency fraud have come to our notice recently by our Missions in Bangkok and Myanmar,” the official spokesperson of the ministry of external affairs said.

The IT skilled youth are duped in the name of lucrative data entry jobs in Thailand through social media advertisements as well as by Dubai and India based agents.

“The victims are reportedly taken across the border illegally mostly into Myanmar and held captive to work under harsh conditions,” the report said.

“Before travelling on tourist/visit visa for employment purposes, Indian nationals are advised to check/verify credentials of foreign employers through concerned Missions abroad, and antecedents of recruiting agents as well as any company before taking up any job offer,” the external affairs ministry said.
