Copy-paste & Data Entry Job Platform
Is Resumetofill Fake or Real?
Why is Resumetofill Fake?
Resumetofill is a website that claims to pay workers for tasks such as copy-pasting resumes and data entry. The site is an exact copy of ResumeFilling.com which is a known scam.
Though ResumeFilling’s site no longer exists, they ran a fake job scam by contacting people looking for work through job portals. They made them sign a fake agreement and then claimed that the worker made a mistake in the work. They then started harassing the worker and threatened to sue them unless some money is paid as ‘portal charges’.
Workers should know that the contract these fake job companies make you sign are not legal documents. Their threats are meaningless and you can safely ignore them. Do not pay them any money.
Resumetofill’s website is of extremely poor quality and contains text that makes no sense at all. There is no proper information about the work to be done and the content is filled with random buzzwords like ‘affiliate marketing’
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 13th February 2021 in Gujarat, India. The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact details have not been provided. Therefore, it is a new website that is being operated anonymously.
Even though the domain registration data clearly shows that the site did not exist before February 2021, the website footer states that the site has been active since 2020. This is clearly a lie.
The website contains a ‘Demo Video’ which shows the interface of the platform. This video has been uploaded on YouTube and likes and comments on this video have been disabled, probably because people they scammed were leaving negative comments and dislikes.
The YouTube page itself was created only in March 2021. This, once again, shows that Resumetofill has not been active since 2020.
There is a page on the website called Refund & Cancellation Policy where it is stated that refunds will not be given under any circumstances. This does not make any sense because no charges are mentioned on the website.
It should be noted that any job that requires you to pay before you can earn is a scam.
Resumetofill is trying to portray that workers are actually paid by showing a screenshot of a Google Pay transaction. However, this screenshot can easily be fake as the sender’s details are hidden. There is also no way to know whether the payment was made to a real worker or one of their own people.
It is also a violation of privacy to publicly show payment details. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that the screenshot is real.
Resumetofill does not seem to have any social media profiles.
The contact details provided on the website include four mobile numbers and an email address. The email ID was found to be working. All four phone numbers have been marked as ‘Scam’ in TrueCaller.
The location of these numbers is shown as Gujarat, which matches the domain registration data.
There are several reviews for Resumetofill available on sites like Scamadviser and CyberCrimeComplaints. All the reviews are negative and confirm that Resumetofill is running the same scam as ResumeFilling.
Workers are made to sign a fake agreement promising good earnings. However, it also states that the worker has to pay the company if there is any mistake in the work. Real companies do not have such policies.
Once the fake agreement is signed, an overwhelming amount of work is given that can never be completing within the deadline. Regardless of whether the work is completed, multiple people from Resumetofill tart contacting the person and harass them with fake legal threats.
They try to scare the workers into paying money by threatening to file a case against them. Many different phone numbers have been mentioned by the reviewers, apart from the four given on the website.
It is extremely obvious that Resumetofill is a scam. They contact desperate job seekers by finding their profiles on job portals. They promise large payouts for simple work and make workers sign fake agreements. After the fake contract is signed, they give so much work that it is impossible to complete with the given deadline.
Even if a worker completes the work, Resumetofill will always say that there is a mistake and refuse payment. Further, they will start harassing the person by calling and messaging constantly with fake threats.
As their fake agreement states that the worker has to pay the company if there are mistakes in the work, they use this as an excuse to ask for money from workers. No money should ever be paid to Resumetofill because their contract is not real, which means they cannot take any legal action.
All the information on the website is fake. Resumetofill is not a real company and the work they provide is not genuine. Their threats about legal action are empty and they cannot actually file a case against any worker.
If you are harassed by any fake employers who ask you for payment due to errors in the work, simply block them.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
