Tech News Desk – An ad has been circulating on Instagram for the last few days. This ad appears in sponsored posts and stories. This is an advertisement for work from home job. In this, it is being promised to give 50 thousand to one lakh rupees in a day. These are a type of fishing aid. Applying in these can be harmful to your bank account.
What is written in the advertisement?
This ad begins with a question. It is written- Do you want to earn something extra in your spare time? After this it was told that they are hiring online staff. After this, it has been said to give 50 thousand to one lakh rupees a day. Salary will be done on daily wages. There will be no delay in payment. It is further written in detail – work from home. Working hours will be flexible. Internet access will be required. You must have your mobile phone with you. The names of those who posted these ads are appearing on Instagram as Kaveri and Anar. However, both these accounts are not present on Instagram. These look like Facebook accounts that don’t even have any followers on Facebook.
Advertisements claiming to give 50 thousand to one lakh rupees a day are being seen on Instagram. This advertisement neither mentions the job to be done nor the details of the person to contact. At the same time, the link that opens after doing Learn More, also does not seem very authentic. If you see any such advertisement on social media then believe that these advertisements are fake. Because where highly qualified people can’t earn 10 lakhs a year, how can a company give you 50,000 a day and 1 lakh i.e. at least 1.8 crores a month? If you see any such advertisement, report it immediately, this one step of yours can save many more people from being cheated.
How to report an ad?
In any post of Instagram, you see three dots with the name of the person posting. In the picture above see the three dots near the up arrow on the right hand side. If you tap on those three dots then you will see five options. You can get information about Instagram ads by tapping on Hide Ad, Report Ad and Why you are seeing Ad, Account Posting Ad and tap on the last option. From that you have to select the report add, after that you will see different options. There is another option in this – this is spam. Clicking on it will report the ad. Instagram will then take necessary action on that ad and the account that posted it.
How to avoid job scam?
Real companies give you money in exchange for work. Doesn’t ask you for money. So if someone is offering you any kind of job and asking for money in return, then understand that the matter is wrong.
Second, no real company will make an offer that is beyond imagination. An average person with good qualification, good experience works hard for a whole month, gets scolded by 10 people for work, still he does not get lakhs of rupees in a month. And if a company is giving you an offer of 5-10 thousand per day instead of pressing four like buttons sitting at home, then it is fully guaranteed that this company is cheating people.
If you see a job offer, then you should do a thorough research about that company on the internet and social media. Get to know the owners of the company. There is very little information online about the fraudulent companies and their owners. As soon as you apply, the fraud company will start pressurizing you to join. You may also be bullied.
When it comes to jobs, these tips will help you avoid these common scams-
Do not check phone calls, SMS or emails from unknown numbers or suspicious email IDs.
Do not share your important bank related information with unknown people through email or text message.
Do not click on links in messages from unknown numbers. If any suspicious link comes from the ID of friends on social media, then inform about it to friends.
If you receive a message asking for money on a friend’s account on social media, please confirm with the friend before sending the money.
Everyone wants a good paying job. But the salary should also be reasonable. Just like if you get 50 rupees daily even after working hard all day, then it will not be fair to you, similarly getting 50 thousand or one lakh in a day in part time job without job description is also not fair. Pay special attention to this matter.
