[Resolved]  Quikr — fraud job opportunity

I contacted vishal kumar from quikr jobs india for mtv events job. He asked me to pay 800 rs for artist card. I paytm it to his number [protected] on 3rd november 2:44pm. Then after that he told me to pay 2850rs for security amount saying that what if you will not turn up on the day of reporting. He promised me that once i will join i will get this amount back. I paytm this amount on two numbers 1500 on [protected] on 3rd november 4:07pm and the remaining 1200rs on [protected]. These both were hidden costs about which there is no mention in the job description. I got some confirmation mail regarding the artist card and i got some registration number too so i though it might be a real opportunity. I got offer letter also after paying 2850 rs. After this he told me that he will fix my appointment for next weekend that is 11 november 2017. But i didnt receive any email so i asked him he didn't reply when i felt a bit suspicious about it i tried connecting to him through different number on which i have sent the money through paytm, the call landed to karnal (Haryana) and someone named sonu's relative picked the call. When i asked to vishal about that number he tols it is company's provided number. After that he asked me to pay 1500 rs more for sure placement in mtv. I denied it and asked him to pay back my money and he confirmed saying that you will get it back by 15th nov according to the pay cycle of the company. After that he blocked on whatsapp and he isnt responding for my calls nor msgs.
