There is this company called Venus Infotech Gujarat, who are scamming people all over India in the name of Work from Home (Image to Excel typing Job). They advertised on quikr Jobs, to which I applied on 12th May 2020. Then I got a call from Mr. Vxxxxa – on 12th May itself, who told me about the details of the job, and told me that there is no registration fee or upfront charge I have to pay for it to enroll in the job.
I was like okay. Then they sent me a PDF which had all the details about the work and the amount which they will pay me for my work. And then they asked me to provide my details for salary purposes.
I Happily gave it to them. Then they sent me my 1st week’s workload (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna Database details in a Image format, which I had to type in excel) on 12th May 2020 itself, which i had to complete in 7 days. I completed the work within 5 days and sumitted to them.
Then Mr. Vxxxxxxa told me to contact Rxxxxxl who happens to be from their so called Verification Department. I called Rxxxxxxl on the given number and Rxxxxxl sent me an email asking me to verify my Bank Details, Aadhar card number, Pan card number. He also asked me to deposit 1000 rupees (500 for the Agreement charge & 500 for the Verification Charge). I told that I was told that there are no charges involved, then why are you asking me this amount?
He said it will be valid for 1 year as our contract with you is for 1 year. And if their is any mistake in your work then we will correct it and forward it further. I told him why can’t you deduct it from the amount that you are going to pay me. He said, you are required to pay this amount before your payment is generated to proceed further.
I trusted them and made the payment via Phonepe on their Phone Pe Number “74xxxxxxx8” Then Rxxxxxl told me that i will be getting a confirmation call from the Verification Department to verify all of my details and after that my payment will be credited to my account.
I had this discussion with Rxxxxxl on 16th May 2020. I never got any call from them till now.
I tried contacting them but they are avoiding my calls.
