Mangaluru: Several duped of crores of rupees in alleged overseas job fraud


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Nov 9: An overseas recruitment agency functioning at Kankanady in the city is accused of cheating several people to the tune of crore of rupees on the pretext of providing employment in foreign countries.

People who were conned by the agency vented their anger at a press conference.

Anita Noronha, a native of Siddapura of Uttara Kannada district, now living in Goa, said, “Allwyn D’Mello of The Legend IELTS, a company situated at Kankanady took Rs 75000 from me promising me of a job in an office in Dubai. However, so far, he has not provided me job and not returning my money also.”

Brandon Pinto, one more person reportedly conned by the company said, “I approached Allwyn D’Mello at his office in January 2022 for a visa to Dubai. He only interviewed me at took Rs 1.3 lac. He promised of getting job in aerospace and aviation sector in Dubai. He also sent a letter saying that it is signed by officials of Dubai on WhatsApp. As I got promise from Allwyn, I forego other chances of employment in India. He has neither provided employment nor returned my money so far. In order to prevent any suspicion of fraud, he arranged training for 30 job aspirants in his office.”

Jaison D’Souza said, “Allwyn took Rs 8.5 lac from me promising jobs for me and my wife clerical jobs in Netherland. When we asked for our money to be returned, he threatened to file police complaint against us.”

Victims said that around 60 people are in their contact who are cheated by Allwyn. The total amount of fraud is around Rs 15-20 crore.

Yogish Shetty Jeppu, president of Tulunadu Rakshana Vedike, said, “A complaint is filed with the city police commissioner and he has ordered an investigation. Earlier, Stephen S of Bengaluru had filed complaint against the same company. On September 1, 2023, Avinash Shukla, protector of emigrants Bengaluru had written letter to city police commissioner of Mangaluru and asked him to take suitable action. If any more victims are there, they should contact police soon.”

    My friend was promised a PR in Canada and Allwyn took 5 lacks from him. And when my friend desperately kept asking him about the progress he gave him a family form to fill which was one of the later steps and my friends parents were divorced and he did not know what to write. My friend asked Allwyn to return the money and Allwyn kept postponing. So my friend filled a police complaint and he got back all his money. This was in 2021. Today the same friend shared this news to me as he was a victim too. If there is anybody in the chat box terming him innocent then he's not. He has cheated many others

    20 cr divided by 60 people who are cheated adds up to 33 lks pet person. Complainants say that he took much lower sums. There is some discrepancies somewhere. The math doesn't add up

    There are 500 plus clients who Alwyn has duped. The complainants have contact with 60 clients out of the 500.

    There are only 2 possible excuses for such immature and insensitive comments: 1. You are either one of the following: a. Thomas Mendes: D'mello's associate hiding in Goa and originally from Bareily in UP. b. Phiroz: Some clown who is acting as Dmello's spoke person and claims to be someone important. c. Sam D'mello: D'mello's fat kid who is going to inherit part of the scammed assets. d. Joshua D'mello: D'mello's other kid who is the other inheritor and just a textbook scumbag. e. Akash Jose: D'mello loyalist who plays with lives of D'mello's victims on weekdays and keyboard on sunday. e. The 4 clowns who had a little vacation in Dubai for 2 months funded by D'mello's scam. 2. You are just an illiterate like D'mello and company. P.S. Looking forward to your response. Would be more than happy to engage in conversation.

    Scheme by gangsters to loot ielts using fake witnesses. Who will give lakhs to ielts guys. Immigration guys ok but ielts who teach English only. Liars have to face wrath of God for supporting gangsters lies. Police will dig the truth. It is easy for the gangsters to get false witness. Judas Christian was the first one selected of twelve disciples by JESUS CHRIST. We have millions Judas Christians now forget German dictator and his million blind bakths now also ready to face wrath of God in India also for releasing asuras of hypocrisy double standards pride hatred mongering gossip selfishness jealousy fake news and lies, discrimination n nKauravas mentality inherited trend culture of ravan bahman kidnapping others wife and aswathama bahman culture of killing sleeping Pandavas .

    Mr. Allwyn is a good person. He would not cheat anyone. He is facing such kind of allegations from last year. If he was a fraud he would have gone to some unknown country and wouldn't show his face. Only time will tell what is real and what is reel. Hope people will get job or their refund.

    STOP Justifying/supporting him, HE IS A BIG FRAUD. you said only time will reveal his innocence? it's been more than 2yrs I lost a very good permanent job in Oman because of him, because of his FAKE JOB promises and he is not giving our money back either. I paid him 5lac and I had withdrawn due to my mother's cancer treatment. You said he is a good man? Nonsense read my WhatsApp messages and see how good he is, he did not even bother to reply or show any concerns, my mother is suffering and we need money for treatment and it doesn't bother him at all. and you are calling him a GOOD MAN?

    He has done exactly that, hiding in a foreign country and living a lavish life with all the victims money. I had taken IELTS Class from him in the year 2017 and it was an absolute mess and waste of time and money. In the year 2019 I had accompanied my friend to the police station to book a case against Mr Allwyn as he had duped him by saying that he will arrange work visa to Canada and taken 3.5 lacs. Luckily with the help of police he was able to recover the money. He uses all the money to mislead people and calls himself a pastor to spread even more lies. There are few people who he has sent abroad after extracting a generous sum of money from them and uses that to fool others, he has also been accused of issuing fake visa to his clients.

    Never pay money for jobs until you verify the source. Please always check free resources like Phishbowl (on App Store and Google Play) that lets you check if a phone numbers, telegram group, website, UPI etc. has been linked to scams before. It doesn't cost anything to stay safe!

    Actually it's a farce going abroad by paying such heavy commission to any agency! If the person is skilled or even a labour class there are ample opportunities to make good money here in MangaNaUru itself! It's only those with college degrees and such others with paper degrees from TDH universities who have big expectations are the once who are trapped here; only a small percentage make it for handsome paypacket jobs in metro cities; many do manage to get jobs in metro cities with medium scale salaries but can't save any money because of the high cost of living especially accommodation! Very competent professional people don't require the help of any agency which charges commission through the roof for getting jobs abroad! The problem here is there are many young people who own multiple degrees but no skills due to the quantity of the institutions that have mushroomed around every nook and corner of this small Smart City! Inspite of such type of cheating going on at regular intervals from such type of fraudsters still people have not learnt the lessons; and such business cannot thrive in broad daylight without the tacit support of the enforcing agencies! This place has become a haven for cheaters of all hues and colors because of the lack of simple common sense! Some days ago an elderly lady lost all her retirement benefits of 72.8L by falling for a online lottery scam which is nothing but excessive greed and absolute lack of common sense and knowledge of current affairs; similarly almost every day somebody or the other is getting trapped in such fairytale online schemes which is shocking considering that this place is supposed to be having a high % of literate people; such incidents will continue as far as there is no dearth of people with greed and lack of common sense 😞!

    Sad to see people getting cheated. I run an overseas manpower consultancy in mangalore so a bit of advice for others to be careful. 1. An person who runs an overseas employment agency has to obtain a recruitment license from MEA(ministry of external affairs) 2. Log in to emigrate.gov.in and see list of recruiting agents in the area who are approved to do this work. 3. Don’t get attracted to the salaries which are way above the normal range. If anyone is offering salary in lakhs plz think twice. 4. Every police station has a list of genuine recruitment agency and their details available in the local police station. 5. Think 100 times while being promised jobs in Europe, uk, Canada. The success rate is very very less and the chance of loosing money very high. I hope sense prevail in the candidates as well and they go through proper channels than being attracted towards big salaries.

    In the first place the people who gave them such large sums of money without getting any confirmation of their appointments are fools! Reputed agents who recruit for genuine established companies do not charge any recruitment fees; second grade agents may charge one month's salary on delivery of ticket to the employee; third rate agents charge through the roof like those who want to go to Israel, around 30L+ for a 1L salary; and fourth rate agents like Alwyn (fly by night operators) defraud clients to the bone and go missing! Once the money has passed on to his hands it's almost impossible to pin him down legally in the absence of any solid proof which the courts would ask for! This fraudster might be enjoying in Goa with the loot! All the best for you to get the money back soon!!

    Kujuma ji; this fraudster has so much moolah at his disposal that he would use a few lacs from that to hire goons to thrash the complainants if they dare come near him; and you might be knowing how to keep the law enforcers at bay to look the other side... hehe 😜😝!

    These kind of consultancies take advantage of the desperation people have in getting jobs. They should be arrested immediately. On the other side I do believe all the companies should look into the cv's of all those who apply online in job boards and social media platform so that there is transparency in selecting candidates so that people dont rely on these types of fraud consultancies

    Kottava kodangi.... Eeskondava Eerbadra.... This type of scams are there from time immemorial... They are common place in Mumbai... i too had paid 3200 rupees way back in 1990 to one Juhee Travels... Hyderabadi people used to talk in intercom ground floor to first floor and we all believed conference call is to Dubai... But smart fellows took small money from many people... Here this Allwyn was a bit too greedy and lost his wits somewhere... taking huge sums and cheating will invite trouble... But with 20 crores in pocket he can make law/legal community dance as he likes... Feel sad for the ones cheated by him...
