"A two-page fake advertisement for recruitment has been noticed on Wednesday. It asks the applicant to contact a person named Rohan Verma...(and) deposit a 'refundable security amount' of Rs 9,800 plus GST," said the airline official.

The advertisement shows the following fake address: Air India Building, Akola, Santacruz East, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400047.

"We have got no building in Akola," another airline official said.
