Vishwakarma Falls Prey To Fraudulent Company: Suicide Note
The four-page long suicide note reads: We are in a dilemma regarding what to do and what not. A small mistake committed by me cost a lot to my family.
I landed an offer to work online for an e-commerce company in April 2023. I agreed to sign up for the job, apart from my main occupation, to earn an extra buck. Initially, I received handsome returns so I began indulging in it more. I invested heavy amounts in this company, and due to increasing work pressure I could not keep a tab on the amount invested.
As I exhausted all my funds, the company started mounting pressure on me to opt for loan and continue working for them. I opted for loan and invested the amount in the company again. Subsequently, the burden of loan increased on me insidiously and I became penniless. I realised that I had been defrauded. I even approached the Cyber cell, but no complaint was registered as officials were not present there.
I am on the brink of losing my job too. I have no calibre left to feed myself and the family. Here are my last respects to all the elder and younger ones of my family, including my parents and in-laws. As I cannot leave my wife and kids lamenting for me behind, I am taking them along with me too.
