Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) claimed to have arrested six members of a fraud ring from Dhaka’s Mirpur as they swindled a large sum of money from job seekers with false promises.
The accused are Md Masum Billah, 33, Khairul Alam Rocky, 20, Md Kamruzzaman, 22, Md Mahmudul Hasan, 32, Masud Rana, 24, and SM Raihan, 24.
Rab also seized many devices, including eight mobile phones, SIM cards, fake appointment letters; a keyboard, CPU, monitor, laptop and resumes of job seekers during its drive Wednesday, Superintendent of Police Bina Rani Das of Rab-3 said Thursday.
The arrestees published fake advertisements for different jobs – including those of security guards, assistant supervisors, and marketing officers – on social media using the name SSF Private Company.
The fraudsters told the police that they were also deceived by fake job advertisements on social media before making a profession out of it.
Legal actions will be taken against the arrestees, Bina Rani said.
