Six Indians, along with a brother-sister duo, were cheated by a false recruitment company in Dubai which took money from them on the word of giving jobs, a media report told on 5 Aug 2019.
Ishrat Fathima, an HR from Tamil Nadu state, that she convinced her brother, a cousin and also her three friends to pay one lakh Rupees which is equal to approximately Dh 5300 to be recruited by the corresponding HR consultancy firm where she worked.
Fathima told she did not understand it was a trap as she worked for the firm for a month, and they gave her salary on time. Her family is angry and asking money from her. She is worried about managing this situation as she itself lost money and got duped.
As per the Fathima, her painful experience started when the firm rejected to stamp her UAE visa and also didn't pay salary.
She said they asked her to pay 3,500 Dirham as a security deposit for her employment visa. She understood it was opposite UAE labor law, but they told that it would be reimbursed, she holds a Management degree and also five years' work experience as an HR in India.
Fathima was sent back to India on the assurance that she will get her employment visa shortly. But after a month, the company requested her to come back one more time on a visit visa. When she asked them, they told the UAE employment visa can be stamped on passport and declined to provide a soft copy. I had no option as she previously paid them 3,500 Dirham.
The trial did not stop for her as even during her next visit, and she was not given with any salary.
The false employment offer racket is separate from the visit visa racket for untrained workers. This one principally targets white-collar professionals in areas like healthcare, education, and management.
