[Resolved] Shine.com — Cyber Crime / complaint against eprofilehub.com
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am Vishwajeet Bardoloi & I had updated my CV in Shine.com, 2 days back.
Yesterday (23/1/2017), I got a call from the no. [protected] at 12:25 PM saying all the details listed in my CV and also saying that there are job openings in India and Abroad.
I didn't suspect anything fishy since they told me all the details in my CV.
Later the same no. called me again at 4:38 PM offering me more job openings.
At night 9:17 PM, I received a call from [protected], saying that I have to pay a minimum processing charge of Rs. 2300 for Indian jobs and Rs. 3500 for jobs abroad. I obliged. the phone got disconnected then,
Then again at 9:19PM, I received another call from [protected], asking me to complete my profile and pay the amount. They directed me to open the site: www.eprofilehub.com, the link is: http://eprofilehub.com/
There they asked me to login and I found my profile there.
Then they asked me to do the payment. I paid Rs. 5749 including tax. I had used my ATM card to do the payment. The person on phone did not ask for the details of the card .
After payment, there was a thank you msg but there was no redirection to the website homepage which usually happens in online transactions. Also there was no receipt. This gave me some suspicion. The person was on the phone during the entire process.
Then he said that to complete the registration I have to pay 10, 000 extra. then my suspicion was confirmed that it was fraud and that I have been cheated.
I refused to pay any more. The person was forcing me to pay more and was becoming rude. Professional people are seldom rude,
I disconnected the phone.
Kindly help me recover the amount and Kindly take action against this. There are a lot of people who are being cheated this way.
