Bhubaneswar: As part of its crackdown on cyber fraud, the Odisha Crime Branch (CB) has alerted the state police about a fake website that has been cheating job seekers on the pretext of proving employment.
In an advisory to all district SPs, DCPs of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack and Superintendent Railway Police (SRP) of Rourkela and Cuttack, the Crime Branch said the website www.shinejob.tech, launched by fraudsters, is hosted on German IP Protocol.
Describing the Modus Operandi of the cyber fraudsters, the CB said the website has different web pages and soon after the user access the website for job, he/she will be directed to the web page to submit her/his identity details, credit card details and CVV number. The website charges the users Rs 10 for applying job. Further, the user is redirected to another web page, where the applicant will be asked to submit PayTM pin. At the end the website shows payment gateway error, informed the CB.
After getting the details, the fraudsters hack the ATM card and CVV number to withdraw money from their bank accounts, the CB cautioned, adding that the original website URL is www.shine.com.
