The woman who went by the name Santhoshini claimed that she had contacts in Behindwoods and could get him a job here. She had also listed a number for contact. She had asked the youth for Rs 7,000 for “training” purposes. Even though the youth didn’t have the requisite money on him, he had sent the same, borrowing from others.

She had additionally siphoned off another Rs 4,000 from the youth saying he has been “selected’ to attend an event at Behindwoods which was to be graced by the likes of actors like Sivakarthikeyan and Pugazh.

The woman had also sent emails by way of a Gmail id that owed allegiance to the name – Priya Behindwoods. The youth was further asked for Rs 20,000 in lieu of “food and accommodation”. Despite him saying that he didn’t have that much cash on him, he was persuaded to send “whatever” he had.

The woman also said that she had procured job for another youngster whom she named it to be “Kishore”. When the youth asked for Kishore’s number, she had said that he didn’t like the job, ergo has left.

At one point, when the youth was asked to come to Chennai, he had done the same; however, some excuse or the other was given to him like actor Vivekh’s demise, someone in Behindwoods had contracted coronavirus and such.

Later, the youth realized that he has been cheated and was on the streets, having lost all the money he had. When he established contact with Behindwoods through email, he came to know that not only him but many such youngsters have been duped. In order to save any more victims, he has come forward to narrate his experience.

Behindwoods is releasing such information in the hope that no one else will be deceived like this young man.
