The Goa Police Cyber Crime Cell, in coordination with the Mumbai Anti Terrorism Squad, have arrested a man accused of running a fake job racket on Sunday after he boarded a plane in an attempt to flee.

The accused, identified as Sumit Upadhyay, allegedly created a duplicate website in the name of Ouvert Marine, mimicking the original, through which, he would issue fake placement letters for jobs on board cruise ships and ask aspirants to pay fees up to 5-lakh for processing each fake placement.

The Shipping Company, Ouvert Marine, had filed complaints with the Goa Police as well as the Director General of Shipping.

The Cyber Cell immediately took down the fake website and froze all its accounts. Further detailed investigation led the Cyber Cell to the prime accused Upadhyay, who, the Police said, hid his real identity using several fake identities, sim cards and travelled across UP, Delhi, Mumbai and Guwahati.
