Three arrested for cheating unemployed youth after promising jobs at MNCs

The Sampigehalli police arrested three persons who posed as HR managers of reputed firms and cheated unemployed youth looking for jobs in Bengaluru.

The arrested conmen––Kali Prasad (38) from Bhubaneswar , Abhijeeth Arun (34) from Pune and Abhijith Mohanty (21) from Odisha– allegedly promised them jobs in Multinational Companies for a huge fee. 

The trio had jobs in private firms but decided to scam people to make extra money. They reached out to candidates looking for jobs and conducted fake interviews online. Candidates who were ‘successfully selected’ were asked to pay money for security deposits, fees, etc.
