I received my upgraded resume which was badly upgraded. My original one was much better in terms of professionalism and accuracy. I also received a verification certificate which now I feel I all fake. I was given a date for Skype interview on 25th May 9:40 pm IST and I waited I did receive a call from Canada through Skype but in 3 seconds they disconnected the call and kept calling and disconnecting as if to show they did call and that I did not answer. Hence I called back they disconnect my call and after that are not reachable. I took a screenshot of the Skype calls and also wrote a message to Pectras as a proof and waited online Skype till 1:00 am IST. Next day I called Ritu informed her she said it will take a week for them to investigate. After a week no response I called back she said 2 days and a response. I waited for 4 days just Incase but no response. I called again she said by 15th June 2017 I will get a call for scheduling the second interview and not to my surprise no response. It's 19th June and now no response all their numbers are not reachable and I even called John his number is disconnected. I saw their website URL has been changed. Unable to get hold of them. I will be filing a police complain in Goa too when I reach there soon as they have cheated me by giving fake job promise and have extorted money. I would also like you all to investigate these scammers and bring us to justice. This is our hard earn money that we have paid them in Hope of a better future.
