How gullible unemployed youth are cheated easily in job scams

Most individuals are of the opinion that job scams involve large amounts. While this could be true in some of the cases, especially recruitment for overseas opportunities, organized job scams also involve a small amount of money. The success rate of job scams that involve a small amount of money is actually higher. This is because an individual who has lost a small amount of money will not spend too much time or effort in trying to recover it. Scamsters take advantage of this and loot a large number of people of a small amount of money. This actually becomes a very large amount if the numbers are taken into consideration. Many of the so-called NGOs that operate with intentions to defraud the public often piggyback on the various initiatives launched by the government.

For instance, the government launched the skill development mission with an aim to empower weaker sections of society with various skills for better employability. This initiative is widely advertised and popular. Organizations that intend to cheat gullible people take advantage of this, by either being a part of the initiative for claiming to be a part of the initiative. With a large number of NGOs in the scheme and initiative, it becomes difficult for the government machinery to monitor the actual actions. This creates grey areas which are then exploited by the NGOs.

One of the biggest scams that are presently affecting a large number of unemployed youth is the skill examination scam of Sabal Bharat Sansthan, an NGO in Jaipur. Established a few years back, this NGO conducts examinations for four different categories. A small fee is charged for the examination, and individuals blindly pay the amount in the hope of getting scholarships or employment opportunities. However, the whole exam is a farce and no one really gets employment opportunities.

The credentials of the individual behind the NGO are itself suspect. Sunil Gurjar, the founder of this NGO was under the scrutiny of investigation agencies for his role in the murder of Bhanwari Devi in 2011. The murder rocked the government at that time and twelve individuals were arrested for various roles in the murder of a midwife who was sexually exploited by a group of politicians including a state minister.

The role of Sunil Gurjar in the case highlighted the nexus between power brokers and people in power. The NGO that he has founded has not actually helped individuals, but it has only taken advantage of the desperation among unemployed youth to look for employment opportunities. With higher rates of unemployment, the NGO enjoys wide patronage from a fresh set of unemployed youth every single year. The whole exam scheme is a huge fraud with the modus operandi itself clearly indicating that the scheme is an eyewash. The lack of complaints and the influence of the individual ensure that the organization continues to run its dubious activities without any scrutiny.
