Agartala, June 11 (TIWN): The chit fund issue has not yet solved and a group of cheaters have started cheating unemployed youths in the name of providing job at Multi-National Companies (MNC). It is the latest style of cheating after deceiving people by chit fund and lottery message through mobile phone. Many job-seeker youths became victim of financial loss by a network of cheaters.

The job seekers youths were attracted by the advertisement of different newspapers where the authority assured to appoint large number of youths at multi- national companies. The advertisements also stated that salary of Madhyamik passed youths will be Rs.15,000 per month and salary of graduate youths will be Rs.30,000 per month or more.

At the same time mobile number for contact was mentioned in the advertisements. Observing such advertisement many job seekers were attracted and contacted with the mobile number. On being contacted the authority said that interview will be called within few days. They also their address as fee for appearing interview. Accordingly some candidates sent the amount of money to participate the interview.

After few days, the cheaters made phone call and said that the candidates have no need to appear in the interview because number of candidate is less than the number of vacant posts. Also, a few candidates were informed that they have been selected for the job. The office is in Kolkata and the joining letter for candidates will be sent if they send Rs 5000 for uniform and other formal items. Many among the candidates sent the amount according to proposal of the cheaters. But, joining letter did not arrive after 15 to 20 days of sending Rs 5000. They also found the contact number switched off which was mentioned in the advertisement. Then the job seekers realized that they were cheated by the authority. It is worthy to mention here that hundred of youths were deceived at Unakoti district during last six months.

On the contrary, CBI detained the Director of a Chit Fund group Pragatisheel Group of Companies who was absconding since long period. Earlier, the company has collected crores of money from the people of Kumarghat, Kailasahar, Dharmanagar and other areas but did not return back the amount to the investors in the maturity period.

As the money was not returned during the maturity period the investors were disappointed and angry which led the Director Arindam Das flee with the huge amount which was collected from the people. The CBI soon acted in the case and arrested the Director but still the people are disappointed as in a similar way the Director of another company called Relation is also missing. They are still assured that the CBI will be able to arrest the Director of Relation who is also accused of running away with the money of the people.
