The CID officials so far came to know that the fraudsters swindled Tk 47 lakh from at least 20 overseas job seekers, Khalidul Haq Hawlader, special superintendent of CID's Dhaka Metro North unit, told The Daily Star.

"This recruiting agency has no valid license. They set up offices in different areas and collect money from people, promising to send them to Canada, Qatar and some other countries," he said.

They show their clients fake visas and illegally charge Tk 3 to 5 lakhs or more from each. After a couple of months, they close their office and vanish, the CID official said, adding they set up office again in another place with a new name.
