I, Rohan Pal, on 27/06/2021 received a call letter for an interview on behalf of Air India (http://www.hrpage.in/Interview-Letter01.pdf). The letter was shared with attached logo of Air India.
It was asked to contact to Mr. Kunal Kumar (HR manager) and was asked to deposit a Refundable Interview Processing & Accommodation & AssuranceCovid-19 Test/E-pass Amount of Rs. 8999 (as mentioned in the letter). I talked to him and deposited the amount into the account number shared. He said it was a wrong amount transaction. Actual amount is Rs. 13, 139 (Rs. 8999 + 2520 (28%CGST) + 1620 (18% GST)). I did the transaction again. Again he said that it was a failed transaction and he asked me to resend the amount again. I did it again (Rs.13, 139) and then he confirmed it was transferred.
After few days I contacted him via whatsapp and phone calls and he assured me that i will get the refund and the exact date and timings of the interview (as per my preferences suggested).
But from 1st July, 2021 onwards, his phone is out of network area and he is not responding in whatsapp (91-[protected]). Thus I got confirmed that it was a fraud.
I thus request the respective authority to take necessary action against this as early as possible.
