On seeing such posters, unemployed people contact publishers. The advertisers promise them job and fleece them in the name of registration and other fees, like dress and advance service charges.

Following the payment, the applicants are sent to parties, marriages and other functions at three- and five-star hotels and other places for cleaning dishes, disposing waste, loading and unloading for 10-12 hours and are told it was part of training without stipend. These fraudsters collect wages of these people from hotels and keep them, according to the petition.
