Consumer Complaints


On Fri, Jun 10, 2016 at 10:34 AM, I received a mail from T Balakrishnan <> who was the 'HR Executive' at 'Macquarie Group Construction Limited'informing me that my resume was shortlisted by them. He also asked me to send my resume for verification and screening. I was skeptic as there was no letter header,contact number or any job description. I did not send the resume,however, I asked them to give me details about the job and location. On this, I received a mail on Thu, Jun 16, 2016 at 8:13 AM from 'Kritty Armstrong'<> who was 'MANAGER'. The email had two attachments : first one was a set of Online Interview Questionnaire and the second was Appointment letter/Contract letter which I had to sign and send back along with my International passport details. I answered the questions and send them the document, however I did not send the signed Appointment letter/Contract letter and the passport details because I did not find any information online about a 'Kritty Armstrong' working for 'Macquarie Group Construction Limited'. However, I could locate a 'Linked In' profile for T Balakrishnan <>. Today i.e., Tue, Jun 21, 2016 at 3:36 AM, I received an email from MACQUARIE GROUP <> with the attachment 'MACQUARIE GROUP APPOINTMENT LETTER'.
