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 as transfer charges.

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? Whom should I complaint for this fraud?

Thanks,
Vinayak

    Vinayak,

    Sorry to tell you, these guys are just not real. There is no company named hillson oil as such. Just imagine, you have got the job offer without being interviewed. They made a fool out of you. Forget the money, I got a call on my cell phone here in US this morning at 6:00 AM, that guy asks me to check my mail for the offer letter and then transfer money for the process. I said ok and kept the phone as I did not want to disturb my sleep. :-)

    I know these guys have got my resume from monster or noukri. They should kick these guys out of subscription.

    Hello Vinayak
    Its not in India, Its the Wwestorn World were you will find most of these frauds and scrupulous activities.
    I want to convey to all my fello indians that I have also got a lot of emails of winning lottery and getting jobs in the companies which do not exist.
    It is a big racket. Please...don't get trapped in this.
    Please don't loose your hard erned money to these emotional terrosist.

    Have patience, forgot about the money now. You may appeal in the UK embassy so that these can be tracked down.
    Have faith in God, things will be fine.
