Robbed in Broad Daylight

I had a live experience today of how it feels to be robbed in broad daylight thanks to this HR Recruitment website. In my search for a suitable job, I registered for one of these websites and they gave me a call to discuss my requirements. During the conversation, the rep revealed that I must make a one-time payment to get access to all the jobs they have on offer, and I agreed. After that, another person calls up from the same firm, takes me to a page on their website and tells me about the other payments I must make to enhance my profile. When I refused and asked for a refund, this guy told me an outright 'NO'. I threatened to take legal action but he didn't seem to bother and now my money has gone down the drain. Never knew that searching for a new job is so difficult and expensive these days.

Man, you need to stay away from such calls!! A reputed organization will never ask you for money!! As soon as the matter comes to money, just say good bye and hang up!!

Why should recruitment agencies charge you they charge a hefty fees from the organizations they work with.. You should have checked before you paid. Maybe you'll be wiser next time around.

You had me thinking you were in the street and someone robbed you. You were not robbed at all. You gave up that money willingly. I hope next time you know better then to say yes to a scum bucket.

Have to be careful when they want you to hand over some money for work. Awareness was brought to you and now you know.

If you are any good, a recruiter will make money out of the employers for finding you. He should have no need to charge you anything.
