Talenttrack.com/fashion Geek — fraud, misappropriation of payment, breach of contract, non-performance of services offered, using fake registered numbers, cyber crime
A requirement for models was posted on an online platform along with the contact details of a person allegedly named 'Vishal Verma' who claimed himself to be an authorised person of an agency called Fashion Geek having an online presence at www.talenttrack.com. In order to avail the opportunity for myself, i contacted the above-mentioned person and exchanged few dialogues in connection with the Agency's works, benefits, etc. The said person asked to sign an agreement (a copy of which is attached to this complaint) with the agency for a period of 02 (two) years and make a payment of Rs.5000/- (Rupees Five Thousand Only) as refundable and interest free security fee and assured that . While perusing the said Agreement, i identified that few clauses were not mentioned and the provisions were ambiguously worded, following which i notified the said person and requested him that a neatly worded, legally valid agreement be put in place instead of the draft sent by him. Pertaining to the aforesaid, the said person took offence and threatened to dishonor the oral communications and pressurized me to sign the said draft due to time constraint and forthwith make the payment of the security fee to a registered number in the name of 'Vishwajeet Roy' via Paytm (the receipt of the said payment and an acknowledgement has been attached hereto). By acting on the said representation in good faith i complied with all the requirements. The said person, immediately after receiving the said payment, notified me of an opportunity and asked me to contact him the day after. Meanwhile, i received few alert messages and posts on the online platform with regards to the fraudulent conduct of the said person (a copy of the same is attached hereto). On the said day, i tried to communicate with the said person by placing a call and the same were not answered, also i sent few text messages that received no reply. I also tried calling at the registered contact info available at the website but the same was invalid and no physical address details or any information pertaining to any concerned person was available on the Website. The said person is engaged in the business of committing frauds by unduly influencing innocent people and fraudulently misappropriating such payments. Therefore, it is my humble request to take strict action against the said person, the functioning of the fraud website, so that no other person is victimized by such an act.
