Kochi: The hackers from Kerala on Thursday revealed that they had defaced a job portal quickjobzz.com alleging that the website was  involved in fraudulent practice. The hackers, Kerala Cyber Warriors (KCW),   had recently shot into fame by hacking the Facebook pages dealing with revenge-porn and child porn. They also leaked the details saying that the monthly transaction of the website sometimes touched Rs 3.6 crore. Another transaction shows Rs 6.4 crore as the total amount. They revealed the details on their Facebook page.   

“This website is made to look like a genuine job search portal but dubious jobs were listed on site. These scammers used to call people to sign up on their website for jobs, after which they ask people to pay Rs 5000- Rs 7000 for interviews, the hackers alleged.  The hackers Forbidden Hacxer and GH057_R007x belonging to KCW posted a mirror site of the hacked website. They claim that they had received complaints from several persons about the 'fraud.' They also provided several consumer complaints posted on the internet against the company.

 

“We deeply reviewed more about this fraud service and found many complaints about them.  After hacking their website, we saw too many bank transaction logs on their website. Those who fall for their scamming must go legally and charge back your money,”  the hackers posted on the Facebook. When Deccan Chronicle contacted the website quickjobzz through a phone number given in the internet,  a representative of the company claimed that the allegations levelled by the hackers were  not true.  “They (hackers) want some publicity. We are not involved in any kind of malpractices. We have settled many disputes and we have proof for the same,”  a representative who identified himself as Rajiv said. When asked whether they have any plans to file a complaint,  Rajiv said that they had reported the issue to the legal department and were  awaiting its response.
