Over the past one month, people who have been duped by fraudsters posing as Indigo associates and recruiters have reported to the Indigo management about these frauds. Post that, the Airline has been reaching out to the masses through social media and press announcements about fake appointment letters issued in the name of Indigo.
“Some who have been duped in the past reached out to us,” shares Raj Raghavan, SVP & head-HR, Indigo with HRKatha.
Many of the fraudsters, posing as Indigo recruiters would post a vacancy ad on social media using original Indigo logos and attract aspirant applicants.
Raghavan further shares that since the Company has come across such instances, it has been running campaigns on social media, spreading awareness about these fake appointment letters being issued by imposters.
“We have launched a combing operation on social-media platforms and have managed to pull down several fake job advertisements which were placed to lure people,” tells Raghavan.
Company officials have shared that Indigo does not charge any money from the candidates to offer internships, training or a job opportunity at Indigo.
Raghavan clarifies that Indigo has certain recruitment processes and systems in place through which it hires people. Also, Indigo is working with the police as well, to stop this menace of fraud job letters.

Even on their official website, Indigo has cautioned people that the company does not charge any money for the registration and application process or even for ensuring a job at the Company. It further informs people that selection or confirmation of a job at Indigo is not done only on the basis of a telephonic interaction. “Do not accept any offer or selection confirmation e-mail basis interviews only through telephonic medium and without any face-to-face meeting,” states the official recruitment website of Indigo.
As per Raghavan, it is not just the aviation sector that is facing the issue of fake job offers but other sectors are also victims.
