Gurinder Duggal: email@example.com, +91-8146048213. He is not exactly a scammer but someone you shouldn't pay in advance. Following is the conversation that happened after which he didn't reply:
Gurinder: Firstly regarding the money, I have been paid only 50% of the agreed amount of Rs. 8000, i.e. Rs. 4000. I have already provided the tutoring service in lieu of the amount received by me. I am also not asking to pay the rest amount.
Earlier I was not having the job so I was doing freelancing tutoring job, but as I told Samreen, that I have got a new job in a company and so I don't have time to take the classes as my new job time schedule is very tight and work very late in the night. Also, now I am traveling outstation on business tours for 15-20 days in the month. Due to all these constraints, I have stopped all my freelancing work, and hence I am not able to take the classes.
I have already provided my services in lieu of the amount of Rs. 4000.00 and I am not interested to get the remaining amount.
Student: Firstly he did not finish half the portion as he claims to have. There are 2 subjects DBMS and visual programming for which we had agreed to pay Rs.8000.(4K for DBMS and 4K for visual programming) But Gurinder sir has finished only 7 chapters out of 16 chapters of DBMS and 2 out of 12 chapters of visual programming. If needed, ask him as well how much portion we had covered.
He did not provide the tutoring service with respect to the Rs.4000 which was paid in advance for the agreement to cover the entire syllabus.
