  3. When exactly was this article posted? There is a confusion in the dates.

    1. Hello Jacob,

      Thing is that, I had this blog hosted earlier on an idiot Indian web hosting company. Due to some technical issue in the server, many of my posts got deleted. When i asked for the back-up, they simply raised their hands !! Can you believe it? I had a copy of my website and hence I manually copy-pasted those posts and hence the change in actual date.

      I also did copy-paste comments.

    He deserve this.

    I am following such scams from past 2 years. Most of them remains out of reach of police. Last year there was bigger scam named as CEDA. A BITS Pilani alumni created a fake organization and recruitment. It is expected that about 50,000 candidates applied for this post and application fee was Rs 400. All major education websites published about this recruitment.

    I tried to make a complaint. Even I know this man and I had his mobile number. Then people started to find my role in this scam. So I stopped to follow this scam. I talked to the scammer via phone and he admitted that he made the website himself. Here is link to the post where I posted his details – http://goo.gl/J1CFKK

    Such brainy frauds deserve to remain behind bars!!!

    I respect you a lot . Please don’t support such frauds.

    1. Who deserves what Ramandeep?
