Fake NRL website created to trick job seekers, complaint filed

Guwahati: Largest PSU Refiner in North East India Numaligarh Ltd Refinery (NRL) said on Monday that a fake website had been set up in its name through which money was collected from applicants in the name of creating “jobs” at the company.

The company has already filed an FIR with the local police station and lodged a complaint with the National Cybercrime Reporting Portal, NRL Director General (Corporate Communications) Madhuchanda Adhikari said in a statement.

“Unscrupulous elements have created fake website with URL of Numaligarh Refinery Limited by replicating genuine NRL corporate website to defraud candidates money unsuspecting for fake vacancies advertised in the career section,” she added.

The company asked everyone to be careful not to pay money to the scam website for non-existent jobs, Adhikari said.

“The fake website has a link named ‘Career’ in the main menu of the homepage. Clicking on the link takes you to the page where 3,235 fake vacancies are advertised to search for details of the candidates and redirect them to the payment request page to make an online transfer of Rs 1,000 for their application,” she added.
