Recently i got contacted by a fake company named “Obrien techno” (www.obrientechno.com) to offer part time typing job for students.
They promised a salary of 18000 for some typing. They said that before i start the job, i need to pay 2000 rupees deposit for security purposes and that this “security deposit” will be refunded 100% after completion of job.
They also showed fake salary payment photos to fool the person into thinking that they are genuine.
So i paid because they showed documents showing that their company is registered with the government (which is not true).
After payment, they asked for personal details like PAN card photo, account number for “identification purpose”.
This is when i realized they are trying to scam while also stealing personal information.
So i told them i would not like to work and i told them to refund the money, they said that their “admin” will contact us soon and refund the money.
This is an endless loop as nobody contacts you and when you ask them about your money, they say that they just handle the calls, money related issues are handled by the “admin”.
This way i have been tricked and lost 2000 rupees and i would like the authorities to take strict action against them and refund our hard earned money.
