I went to the office, it was a little place at the end of Chandni chowk Kolkata 7A hospital street, 4th floor of Syndicate bank. The company name is (aquainfosolution). There were many people appearing for the interview. First, they told me at the reception to give the CV and then to go to a room for written test as a waiting room. it was a small room where everybody was waiting and a sir was there talking to everybody. We were told not to take a call on the room and not to talk to each other. They wanted us to remain silent and then they start calling everybody one by one. People who gave an interview were not staying in the waiting room. When I went inside the room they asked me: what is your typing speed and every detail; what I know, my skills in advance excel.
Then she told me I need to pay Rs.800/- for direct joining letter. And Rs.1500 for training and if want to level the job, then I need to pay the company the three-month salary. Then she told me that my salary will be 9k-10k but I told her I didn't know about the money I have to pay but she told me that it is refundable after 2 or 3 months. I will be included in my salary account which will be created by the company I will work for. As I didn't have the money, I paid Rs.200 and told I will pay remaining tomorrow. She asked If I have Paytm, Phone pay or Google pay to transact the money. So she told me to pay tomorrow and then they will give me a joining letter.
When I went the next day and paid Rs.600/- they gave me some kind of slip and on it was written offer letter there, but it was also written 'non-refundable'. I asked the guy, he said nothing about this and told me to come on Sunday to pay Rs.1500/- for training.
What should I do? Are they a fraud ?
