Celogen Pharma — Fraudulent activity by our ex-C.A., Mr.Sanjay Thampy
We had rendered service of a CA, Mr.Sanjay Thampy. He was referred by one of our colleagues and based on that we entrusted him with the entire Accounting job including statutory compliances. He was given a fixed remuneration (more than double of director's pay) everymonth for the full book keeping accounting and getting the accounts book audited, filing and meeting the statutory requirements of taxes, ROC etc. However while in the job, it was found that he was not updating the books of accounts properly and nor the filings being done. Accordingly we also found that he had been taking away the Company's data and giving to other competitors. Based on the same we warned him and told him to watch his actions. Then he disappeared and refused to give completion to the jobs assigned to him. he never used to even attend calls. Then one day he calls up saying the audited balance sheet can be done in exchange of cash (this is totally wrong). Also he got the books audited by some unknown person and demanded Cash for the audit...which is not the right manner.
Later on we even found that he had tampered with the valuable data of the company and also put a password to lock the accounting system so that the company should not access the same in his absense and find the fraud done by him. When he was asked about it, he refused to unlock demanding more payment. He even has taken the data and is working in hands with competitors and contacting our customers via email and sms.
Our current auditors are still trying to rectify and put in track most of the mischiefs done by him during his tenure.
With this email we would like to alert and warn all our fellow members to be alert to such activity and of such a person.we should be aware of such fraudulent Chartered Accountants who would do anything for the money part and work with no ethics!!! How do we put a stop to such people????
