Chennai, May 6 (UNI) There was no let-up in the cheated depositors of Goldquest, an MLM company, storming the police commissionerate, as hordes of people continued to flood the office with complaints for the fourth day today.
As the crowd seemed uncontrollable, special counters were opened at the Commissioner's office to receive complaints from gullible public, who were promised gold coins in return for their deposits.
The aggrieved people also demanded that company founder Vijayendran, who was said to have fled to Hong Kong, be arrested.
After sealing the company's office in the city, police were now planning to freeze the bank accounts of the firm and was also initiating steps to bring its owner to book.
Meanwhile, the complainants who reached the Commissionerate today had different tales of woes to narrate, with several alleging that they were asked to attend meetings in five-star hotels where senior officials from the firm coached them on how to market the products and enrol customers.
Initially, those who attended the meetings were asked to sign a form and later the officials from the firm pressurised them to pay the deposit money soon.
It may be noted that acting on a complaint from one of the company's network member, police arrested seven persons on the charge of following fraudulent business practices.
According to the complaint, Quest Net had refused to give him the promised gold coin after paying Rs one lakh.
