Fraud by Job Consultancy

  • 1 Answer

I registered with a job consultancy @ kochi and paid them 6500. 500 rs for registration which is non refundable and 6000 rs as service charge which is refundable if I didn't get a job through them within 90 days. After eight months I applied for refund and they said refund will be credited to my account within 1 week. I approached them on the last week of August. When I called them after 1 week they said it will be credited on September 19. Since my account didn't got credited I called them again and they said another date October 7th. Again on October 7th they changed the date to October 19. Again it got changed to October 26. Again on 31 October they the date to November 3rd. I had call them around 50-55 time a day, then only they will pick the call. I have all the documents with me receipts, bank slip of the amount I deposited as service charge.etc.. what should I do now, should I file a case, whom should I approach?
