Many of us might have got message on Whatsapp or otherwise offering part-time jobs, click based. Once you join them, they offer a minimum Rs 140 to Rs 500 a day, but after that they insist small investments, ranging from Rs 5,000 to Rs 15,000 as merchandise promotion.  Union Home ministry’s cyber crimes wing detected them all as fraud and cracked its whip today.

Over 100 websites, which facilitated organised illegal investments and task-based part time job frauds, were blocked following a recommendation of the Union Home Ministry. According to an official statement, these websites were being operated by overseas actors. We can’t talk to their representatives, but only get calls from a group administrator – who  later transfers us to a group.


Task based part-time jobs

The Indian Cybercrime Coordination Centre (I4C), a wing of the Union Home Ministry, through its vertical National Cybercrime Threat Analytics Unit (NCTAU) had last week identified and recommended over 100 websites involved in organised investment and task based part time job frauds be blocked.

Following this, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), invoking its power under the Information Technology Act, 2000, has blocked these websites, the statement said. These websites, which facilitated task-based organised illegal investment related to economic crimes, were learnt to be operated by overseas actors and were using digital advertisement, chat messengers and mule and rented accounts.

The proceeds from the large scale economic frauds were seen to be laundered out of India using card network, crypto currency, overseas ATM withdrawals and international Fintech companies, the statement said. The I4C is an initiative of the Home Ministry to deal with cyber crimes in the country in a coordinated and comprehensive manner.

Many people who want to take up part-time jobs and make good money just by clicking some Youtube videos take up these offers, thus losing some money, after gaining a little.
