Police on Friday arrested 16 people, who allegedly cheated over 500 people through fake job websites. Police said the accused had duped the victims of Rs 4 crore. Police said those arrested were highly educated.

Police arrested the accused from their offices in Sectors 7, 62 and 64, and confiscated 148 CPUs, 64 monitors, 21 cellphones, 10 walkie-talkies and two laptops.

The masterminds of the racket — a couple — are absconding. They are residents of Sonepat, Haryana. Police said the 16 arrested were working for the couple. The couple had also hired three “brokers” based in Noida, who were paid 64 per cent of the total transaction amount for their services. They are yet to be arrested.

SP (Crime) Sunita Singh (Gautam Budh Nagar) said police were on the case for a year. “The last four months saw a spike in the number of cases and we used to get frequent complaints from duped customers. We tracked their calls with the help of the cyber crime department and raided their offices,” Singh said.

Singh said the accused used to call up people at random from a database they had maintained. Police said they also used social media platforms to target unemployed youths. “They used to pose as consultants and send false interview and appointment letters of various IT companies. In return for their consultancy services, they used to demand huge sums of money,” Singh said.

Police said the three “brokers” used to supervise the online transaction of money between the victims and the fake job syndicate.
In the last one year, police received nearly 500 complaints. “After certain transactions, the accused used to shut down the websites and close their respective bank accounts,” a police officer said.

A case of has been registered, police said.
