    Engineer in India job scam


    Please note that in May and June 2014 a fraudster has been posting fake adverts on free Indian job sites. The jobs are most for `Engineer’ with an Australian company named Santos Limited [a real company but not advertising vacancies this way].

    The fraudster seeks to trick candidates to make payment to his bank account for such charges including recruiter fee, visa application, medical check etc. DO NOT send him any money – there is no job and he has no right to charge anyone – he is a fake.

    The fraudster uses the following [false] name and contact details:

    Name Dr. Mark Collins
    Phone +91-9582675266
    Email recruiterunit@consultant.com

    He also uses the same text to claim he is a recruiter, it goes like this:

    Santos Limited is The Largest Leading Oil and Gas Producer Supplying Australia and Asia Customers With over 3,000 Employees across Australia and Asia, Santos’ Foundations Are Based On Safe, Sustainable Operations And Working in Partnership with host communities, governments, business partners and shareholders. Currently We Need The Service Of The Following Field Of Discipline. Mechanical, Electrical and Chemical Engineer. Geologist, Petroleum Geologist and Site Geologist
    Welders, Diesel Mechanics and Fabricators For more information contact our Asian recruiter. Dr. Mark Collins +91-9582675266 recruiterunit@consultant.com

    Please do not reply to this fraudster! Report his fake adverts to the job website and demand that they remove the advert at once!

    Re: Engineer in India job scam

    Sorry to read that you lost money to a scammer running a scam but happy that you found this site to post your story.

    Anyone that says they can help you get your money back is the EXACT same scammer, trying to steal more of your money.

    Thanks for posting up that information on a scam.

    Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post containing the name the scammer is using, his email address, phone number and the emails themselves and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".

    Wasting a scammer's time legally and safely is called "scambaiting". If you google that word, you will find sites where you can read scambaits, post up the emails and email addresses of scammers, post up a fake website, read up on how to alert a hosting company that they are hosting a fake website, ask questions and learn all about the hobby of scambaiting.

    Since that scammer intended to steal your money, he did not give you his real life information. All you have is one of his fake names, one of his free email addresses, one of his fake stories and one of his paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers. None of that information is going to help your local law enforcement agency track down that anonymous scammer sitting in a cyber cafe half way around the world from you.
