We are living in a world where every single part of our life has got digitalised, while it has obviously increased our comfort level, sadly, it has also provided a mask to the frauds and creeps who try to hide behind fake identities to harm others.
While there are a lot of job portals available online, word of mouth for getting a job reference is still one of the most useful methods. However, there always remain a possibility of the personal data present in the resume to get misused by the stalkers.One such incident happened with a Chennai based blogger Namya Baid, who had shared her contacts with some friends and he passed her profile to some people, but what followed next is a stuff of nightmares, and people really need to stay alert from such kind of fraudulent creeps.
Here is the post that Namya has shared on her profile
“Girls, and everyone around. This is something serious. I don’t want anyone to go through this. So please please be careful before attending any calls.Recently I had started applying for jobs and a friend passed my contacts to people he knew.
Someone called me and claimed to be from Air France (+91 73566 88358) and the moment I started finding it fishy, I kept the call recording on.He claimed to be from Air France and asked basic questions.Then my height, weight. It was fine till that. But then he asked my chest size and waist size.
Then he said this was first round, now someone will call for the second round. He called at 5:20 and went till 5:55 where he explained the various rounds, job description and what not.
At 6, he itself called for the second round (he said another person will, but he himself did). And then said I’ll have a WhatsApp video call. Asked me to be alone in a room so that no one’s there to help me. Asked me the colour of my shirt and pants.
He himself called me on the video call with the number +919495771521 claiming to be another person (Dr. Manish Rao, he mentioned) and then on the video call, he asked me to show my height and weight. He asked me to show my tattoos. He asked to then show my stomach, I was uncomfortable and denied doing so. He asked me to wear a t-shirt and do so. Then he asked me to take off my innerwear but keep my t-shirt on and stuffs.
He clearly mentioned that my nipple bulge is to be seen. I found it weird. Cut the call.
And I again got a call from the previous number and he acted like he’s a different person and said that the doctor told him I’m uncomfortable.My friend was with me throughout and both of us could easily find that the voice was same and when we questioned about it, he changed the thing and cut the call.
Today, when I confronted him, he tells me things like “what he recorded on call was enough”, “Namya, you’re gone”
For a fact, I know that there’s nothing he can do because I didn’t do anything he asked on the call.Girls, take this as a lesson and please please please be safe.
She also shared the conversation with the man which shows how the stalker has crossed all the limit of creepiness and instead of pleading for mercy instead decided to threaten the girl”
More power to the girl for the way in which she handled the scenario! We hope proper action is taken against the stalker and the message serves as an awareness for others!
