Yesterday evening at around 730 I received a mail from Skoda informing I was the among the 112 people who got selected and out of which 110 would get the job. I had to pay a security deposit of nearly 8k towards travel (flight tickets) etc. There was a guy’s number and name too given.
I spoke to this guy this morning and asked about this and he asked me to deposit the amount asap and when I asked which branch is he from, he panicked and said he’ll handle my case at 2 PM.
Sensing fraud I went to the Skoda India website and found that the actual email was “firstname.lastname@example.org” and our man had emailed me from “email@example.com”
Rang him up and gave him a piece of my mind. His phone’s switched off ever since.
Here is the letter I got.
