This is something I really wanted to hear from community.
In countries like India, specially for interns and junior developers, what usually happens is smaller companies in countries like USA, hire these young chaps who have no idea of validating a genuine job/company, underpay them, and in most cases don't pay at all and instead promise an experience certificate and in some cases they're being promised an on-site job with all expenses included after the completion of 6 to 12 months of work experience , and are eventually ghosted.

In some cases, they were employees of big companies in the US who were getting their work done for free from these poor chaps.

This my dear friends, is the dark side of remote jobs.

This is really saddening to read. I hope you can find some way to help prevent this or help these chaps avoid getting all exploited like that. For my part, we've long been aware of the potential strains of remote work, especially international remote work, and I've been thinking hard about how to ameliorate them.

For the most part freshers aren't aware of these scams. And the labour laws are at times very vague around remote jobs. Freshers understanding the legal requirements for the same is next to none. Thus making it very easy for scammers.
