Dubai jobs firm dupes Indian family friends

first_imgDubai: Six Indians, including a brother-sister duo, were duped by a bogus recruitment firm in Dubai which took money from them on the pretext of providing jobs, a media report said Monday. Ishrat Fathima, an HR professional from Tamil Nadu, told Khaleej Times that she persuaded her younger brother, a cousin and three of their friends to pay Rs one lakh (around Dh 5300) to be hired by the same HR consultancy company where she worked. “I did not know it was a trap as I worked for the company for a month and they paid me my salary on time. Now my family is furious and they are all demanding money from me. But how will I cough up Rs 500,000 when I myself lost money and got cheated?” Fathima, 27, said.

After the interview, they offered me a job for Dh2,500 plus incentives.” According to Fathima, her harrowing experience began when the company refused to stamp her employment visa and also did not pay her. “They asked me to pay Dh3,500 as a security deposit for my employment visa. I knew it was against UAE labour law but they insisted it will be reimbursed,” said the woman, who has a Business Management degree and five years’ experience as an HR professional in India.

But a month later, the company asked me to come back again on visit. When I questioned them, they said the employment visa can only be stamped on my passport and refused to send a soft copy. I had no choice as I had already paid them Dh3,500.” The ordeal did not end for Fathima as even during her second visit, she was not paid any salary. “I knew things were fishy. So, finally I took up another job offer from one of their clients, and thought that was the end of all my troubles in the UAE. But I was wrong.” Fathima said she was paid her first months’s salary and was awaiting her employment visa to come through.last_img read more
