Email selling jobs at KU fake, clarifies varsity admin

Karachi:04 April:The University of Karachi’s (KU) administration on Monday distanced itself from an email promising jobs at the varsity in exchange for money paid through a cellular network’s money transfer service.
The email was not circulated by the varsity’s administration, it was clarified after the university received calls from people who said they were promised jobs in exchange for payment of around Rs2,000.
The email was sent from an account: careers.uok@post.com promising various jobs at different departments and sections of the varsity.
“Job aspirants have been asked to fill in an application form attached in the email and also asked to send Rs1,950 through a cellular network on an ID card number mentioned in the email,” the varsity’s spokesman stated.

However, the identity number mentioned in the email is fake and not registered with the National Database and Registration Authority.

“The Public Relations Officer of KU disowns the email circulating from a fake account (careers.uok@post.com) claiming to offer jobs at the varsity in exchange for money. The university clarifies that these emails are fraud and have nothing to do with the varsity. Those concerned are instructed in their own interest to ignore the emails, otherwise KU will not bear any responsibility,” the spokesman said.

Names of KU officials mentioned in the email including the varsity’s registrar have also decided to approach the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Cyber Crime Wing to lodge a complaint as scores of job aspirants claimed they had already paid the money.

“University of Karachi bears no responsibility for any loss to people due to the fraud and are advised to approach law enforcing agencies to lodge their complaints,” the spokesman added.The news.
