Home Jobs Experts (365homejobs.com & teamhomejobs.com)
Work-from-Home Data Entry Jobs Provider
Is Home Job Experts Fake or Real?
Why is Home Job Experts Fake?
365homejobs.com is the website of Home Jobs Experts, which claims to be a company providing data entry jobs. Much like, SmartOnlineWork and BPO Projects India which have been reviewed on this blog previously, Home Jobs Experts provide work like Paragraph Typing, Captcha Work and Online Data Entry Jobs. However, they require a fee to be paid before a person can start working with them.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that the site has been registered on 30th April 2020 in New Delhi under the name of Deepak Gaba. The company does not have a presence on social media networks or a listing on Google My Business. Deepak Gaba’s name does not appear anywhere in the website content and no profile of him could be found online. However, a search for the phone number provided with the domain registration displayed the name ‘Star Health Insurance (Deepak Gaba)’, which suggests that Deepak Gaba might be an insurance agent.
Surprisingly, the website mentions that it is registered under GST as well the Government of India’s Udyog Aadhar scheme for MSMEs. The details provided are genuine, as revealed when cross-checked with the GST website.
It is interesting to note that though the website has gone live only in April 2020, the GST registration has been done in April 2018. No field verification of the company has been conducted by GST authorities.
The Features section of the Home Jobs Experts website prominently displays a hand holding currency notes alongside some features which portray the jobs as easy and convenient.
The next section is the Packages section and things take a suspicious turn at this point. There are various packages mentioned ranging from ₹2,000 – ₹3,000 for different types of jobs. The subsequent section is Payment Options, which suggests that anyone can make a payment and start working using the packages. There is no mention of any qualification criteria or background check.
A google search for the company brought up some reviews on Quora, where users complained that they have been defrauded by the company. They allege that they have not got any response from Home Jobs Experts after making the payment to purchase packages.
Taking into consideration all the above information, it is my conclusion that Home Jobs Experts is not a trustworthy website. Though the GST registration and Udhyog Aadhar details are legitimate, the website doesn’t give much information to confidently say that Home Jobs Experts is not a scam. There are no contact details given on the website, there is no refund policy mentioned and not even a company address is provided. The website is quite new at the time of writing this and already a number of complaints against Home Jobs Experts have popped up online. Overall, the website gives a shady impression and does not look credible in the slightest.
As we have seen earlier on this blog, work-from-home data entry jobs scam is quite common. Any company which asks for payment before the candidate can start earning is very likely to be a scam, as no genuine companies operate that way.
If you have been a victim of such a scam, you can take the following steps:
- Lodge a complaint at the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal
- Lodge a complaint with PayTM on Twitter, Customer Care or through the app, UPI app such as Google Pay or the Bank with which the company has an account.
- Report the website to Google using the Suspicious Site Reporter extension for Chrome
- Give a low rating to the website on Web of Trust. You can also install their extension for the same.
- File a complaint with the Indian Consumer Complaints Forum
- Write a review on websites such as MouthShut, Scamadviser and TrustPilot.
- Block all numbers of the scammers on TrueCaller, mentioning the words Fake, Fraud or Scam in the name.
- If the company has a listing on Google My Business or Google Maps, file a complaint using the Business Redressal Complaint Form. Also, leave a negative review explaining what kind of experience you had.
Most important of all, arm yourself with the knowledge of scams to prevent becoming a victim in the first place.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
