We come across this website for recruitment of 5159 MANIPUR GRAMIN VIKAS KENDRA. We checked the link but found it very suspicious! This definitely looks like a scam website where they collect the small payment fees from applicants.
Here's our findings:
- We opened the recruitment link http://manipur.gred.co.in/ and our first impression is that there's too many grammar mistakes in that short information. Secondly the pay scales are way too high for the post. The application fee is also same for General/OBC and SC/ST which normally is not the case when we apply for competitive exams.
2. The recruitment link http://manipur.gred.co.in/ is a subdomain. So we checked the main domain http://gred.co.in but found that the website is showing underconstruction page.
3. We digged further to check Whois of the domain. We found that the domain name gred.co.in was registered just last December and registered only for a year! Registered under the name of one Sachin Kumar from Chandni Chowk.
4. We researched further and submit some dummy information to reach to the last page. This is the page after submitting the personal details. They are asking for admit card fee. Nowadays admit cards are downloaded online.
Even after registration we did not get any email confirmations. Normally in any online job application, after registration they send email confirmations.
5. Clicking the Pay Now button takes to an unusual payment gateway.
6. Their final webpage after submitting all the details is http://gred.co.in/man/thankyou.php. However we found out that this page can be visited even without submitting the personal details. How can one access the payment page without even filling up the application form?
Please note that the application name, email and mobile number is blank, however they have generated a registration number. We have checked again, the registration number changes everytime we refresh the page and the registration number systematically increases by 1.
Please note the content below. Even though we had not filled any applications and have directly access the link http://gred.co.in/man/thankyou.php its showing the information "Thank You for Your Registration. You will receive your Admit Card in Next 15-20 Days at your Home Address. Click Below Pay Now to pay your Admit Card Fee" We are pretty sure this is Fake!
Now here's the thing. For 5159 job vacancies, if 10,000 people applied paying Rs 98 each, the scammer will walk away with 9.8 lakhs.
We are pretty sure this is a scam website. Please do not fall for such websites. Apply at your own risk!
