Delhi HC directs blocking of website offering fake work from home jobs

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has ordered the instant blocking of a fraudulent website registered underneath the domain name '', which is duping the public by offering work-from-home jobs in exchange for a fee.

Ex-parte ad interim injunction granted in favour of Indiamart, a business-to-business (B2B) portal that offers an internet-based marketplace with free and paid listings for the advancement of industry, products, as well as services.

The Court noted that the defendant's website misrepresents itself as an Indiamart representative and collects sums of money in exchange for employment opportunities.

"It is clear to the Court that Defendant No.1 is completely passing off and indulging in fraudulent activity by showcasing himself as the Plaintiff/ Plaintiff’s representative and collecting various sums of money by allegedly offering job opportunities," the Court stated.

As a result, it determined that Indiamart had established a prima facie case for an injunction.

Also, the Court restricted the defendant's website from using the mark, name, or domain name, 'INDIAMART,' or any other identical or confusingly/deceptively similar mark, name, or domain name, until the next date of hearing.

The Court also ordered the instant blocking of the fraudulent website, as well as the locking and suspension of the domain name

The Court further ordered GoDaddy, the domain name registrant, to record the information regarding the person who registered the domain name within a week.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police, Cyber Crime Unit was further instructed to investigate the situation and submit a status report before the next hearing date.

Union Bank of India's counsel assured the Court that the defendant's bank account would be immediately frozen.

Indiamart asserted that the defendant, Sameer Samim Khan, had created a website with the domain name '' and was offering jobs fraudulently using the 'Indiamart' mark and name in an unauthorised manner.

It was alleged that on the website, Khan was luring gullible people and providing them 'work from home jobs through 'Indiamart's Data Entry Project.'

It was also providing multiple proposals for this purpose, which could be obtained by anyone after paying application fees ranging from Rs. 899 to Rs. 1,199.

The case will be heard again on September 27, 2022.
