Money taken for job but not returned
Hello, I had given 1.5 lakhs to a govt registered company for job placement. He's not able to provide the job so I asked for the money back but he's wasting time and not returning the money. I have transaction records for 30,000 and a note written by him stating he took remaining money from me. What legal action can I take to recover the amount
