These websites are offering employment opportunities to the aspiring candidates and misguiding the job aspirants through the layout of website, content and presentation in a manner similar to original website and asking for money from the respondents for the applications.
While these websites have come to the notice of the Department of School Education and Literacy, there may be more such other websites/social media accounts promising jobs and demanding money for the recruitment process, it warned the job aspirants not to fall prey to such claims.
"The General Public is, hereby, advised to avoid applying for job opportunities on such websites and to ensure themselves that the websites are authorised by visiting the official website of the concerned Department/personal inquiry/telephone call/e-mail to safeguard their own interest. Any person applying on these websites will be doing so at his own risk & cost and shall be responsible for the consequences thereof," the press release from the Ministry of Education said.
Oneindia had recently published a story on typosquatting and how miscreants cheat people.
Cybercriminals first register the domain names of misspelt URLs. They will book multiple domains that have high chances of misspelling. If the original website is www.buyshoesfree.com, they try to book domains like www.buyfreeshoes.com, www.buyshoefree.com, www.buy-shoes-free.com, etc. Read more about it here.
A fake website claims to be associated with the Government of India's Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan has no links with Samagra Education and beware of fake websites claiming to be associated with the government of India.
