Aster said fraud­u­lent re­cruiters abroad are us­ing its name and sim­i­lar in­ter­net ad­dresses and emails to tar­get job­seekrs in coun­tries in­clud­ing In­dia, Pak­istan, Philip­pines, New Zealand and Zim­babwe.

Prospec­tive job can­di­dates are asked for cash as part of the ap­pli­ca­tion.

“We urge job seek­ers not to fall prey to such il­le­gal re­cruit­ment ac­tiv­ity and to alert us of any such bo­gus schemes,” said Rat­nesh Sharma, the Group Chief Hu­man Re­sources Of­fi­cer at Aster DM Health­care.

“We strongly con­demn such il­le­gal ac­tiv­ity and we do not take any re­cruit­ment fee from job­seek­ers.”
