5. After this payment, city bank and Employer started to say that there was new process introduced as non-European employee has to show their financial capability and hence I need to pay 12, 750 GBP

Payment Details:

OPEN ACCOUNT WITH CENTRAL BANK OF ENGLAND WITH 4, 800 POUNDS
DEPOSIT THE SUM OF 7, 950 PUNDS,
TOTAL OF 12, 750 GBP (TWELV THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY POUNDS)

By this time I had lost my patience and I requested them stop the process and return my payments. Then they reduced the payment amount to half the amount.

6. Again I informed them that I will not be able to pay the amount and requested them to return all my payments. To return my payment, they are again asking me to pay 1, 980 GBP.

Except the first payment, all other payments I have done from India. Now, is there any way to get back the payments I have done?

Thanks,
Vinayak Koragappa
