I got a call from a woman named Vithika. It was about an online data entry job. The contact person was a woman named Vithika Chaudhary (Mobile. 9666521059) (Email. [email protected]
She gave me some images of text and told me to type them and correct the mistakes. I did the job and asked beforehand that if they should not demand any registration before payment. She said no registration will be required and the payment will be based on the accuracy of the job, blah, blah.
However, once I finished the job. She told me to register with 650/-, some GST crap. I told her that it is not possible so she reduced the amount to 350/-. She told me that a verification will be required with that amount.
I got the fraud and blocked her number. Don't get fooled by these frauds who give very mediocre jobs for large payments.
They give you images with text that can be easily typed using Google Lens. This was the first clue in fraud but I still did the job to check if it's genuine or not.
Online data entry jobs are 95% frauds. Just improve your skills, learn some software or coding, and don't respond to these shitty jobs.
