Instances of fake job rackets offering lucrative jobs to lure Indian youths for the posts of Digital Sales and Marketing Executives in Thailand have come to our notice recently.

The Ministry also highlighted that the “target groups” for these rackets are “IT skilled youth who are duped in the name of lucrative data entry jobs in Thailand through social media advertisements as well as by Dubai and India based agents”.

According to the MEA, the victims are taken across the border illegally and held captive to work.

Before travelling on tourist/visit visa for employment purposes, the MEA advised Indian nationals to check/verify credentials of foreign employers through concerned Missions abroad and any company before taking up any job offer.
