Is VHSoftTechSolutions Fake or Real?
Why is VHSoftTechSolutions Fake?
VHSoftTechSolutions aka VetriHonest is a website that claims to provide data entry jobs that involved tasks such as captcha-solving.
The website states that workers can earn up to ₹12,000 per month for captcha-solving work. This is the first sign of VHSoftTechSolutions being a scam as this kind of work pays very little.
At most, you can earn ₹20/hour which is ₹160/day for 8 hours of work. This amounts to a maximum of ₹4,800 per month and realistically it will be even lower.
However, it becomes pretty obvious that it is a scam when you look at the ‘How it Work?’ page. The company asks for a ‘refundable’ fee of ₹850 for registration.
No legitimate company will ask workers to pay before they can earn. Any company that asks you for money to work for them is almost guaranteed to be a scam.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 27th November 2020 in Chennai. The registration details are supposedly of a company called VetriHonest, but these details are likely to be fake. The address does not appear to be real and the phone number is shown as ‘Maxwell Communication’ in TrueCaller.
The quality of the website is extremely poor. The content looks like it was written by someone who barely knows English.
There are also random buttons like ‘Request a Quote’ which makes no sense as the company does not provide any services that require a cost estimate. This clearly shows that the site has not been created by professionals.
The Payment Gateway page is the only page on the website that any effort has been put into. It is obvious that the main purpose of the website is to receive payments from victims.
It contains the bank details of three separate accounts as well as UPI payment information. The name is shown as ‘Vetri Honest’ when checked on Google Pay.
The website contains some poorly-written reviews. These are meaningless as they are likely to be written by the scammers themselves.
VHSoftTechSolutions does not have any social media presence. There is a YouTube video embedded on the website, but it is from a random channel called DigitalWaltTV that itself might be a scam.
The contact details on the website include an email ID and address. Strangely, no phone number is mentioned on this page.
The address is incomplete and it is likely to be fake as it is different from the information provided for domain registration. The email ID was found to be working when tested, however, it does not mean much due to reasons covered in the next section.
VHSoftTechSolutions has written fake reviews on sites such as Scamadviser too. There are multiple reviews containing the same text, making it apparent that they have been written by the same person.
The negative reviews confirm that VHSoftTechSolutions is a scam. Users have mentioned that after they paid the registration fee, the company sent them the login details of 2Captcha, which is a legitimate captcha-solving website that pays.
However, registration on 2Captcha is free, which means that VHSoftTechSolutions is taking money for no reason. The company also stopped responding to users once the amount was paid.
It is quite obvious that VHSoftTechSolutions aka VetriHonest is a scam. The company claims to pay up to ₹12,000 per month for captcha-solving work. No company pays this much for simple work, making it clear that VHSoftTechSolutions is nothing but a scam.
The most obvious sign of VHSoftTechSolutions being a scam is that they ask for a ₹850 ‘one-time registration fee’. No real company will ever ask you to pay to work for them.
Users who paid the registration fee have confirmed that it is a scam, as they were given the login details of 2Captcha. Registration is free on 2Captcha and the payouts are extremely low. Therefore, VHSoftTechSolutions is making false earning claims and taking money for nothing.
Two different company addresses are provided and both seem to be fake. The website quality is also extremely poor and shows that VHSoftTechSolutions is not run by professionals.
The company has also posted several fake reviews on Scamadviser and on its website too. It is advisable to avoid signing up with VHSoftTechSolutions aka VetriHonest as they are just scumbag scammers who want to steal ₹850 from job seekers.
After publishing this article, some guy called ‘Kevin Honest’ messaged me on Facebook saying that he will pay me to take the article down.
He has cloned a site called Ki-tech (kitech.org). Both sites are identical and look like the same scam.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
