    BEWARE..THEY ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY.
    Sounds like they've used you to get the contract then exercised their right of substitution before you even started it! Utter filth.

    White, with black writing on. About A4 sized. Might be a couple pages.

    HTH.

    Hey

    Are any of these Indian recruitment companies a member of REC*?

    If not, then may be that the question that will help us all out to filter.

    Hope you stuck to your guns.

    They are killing time until a suitable internal resource becomes available.

However, I have at long last received my very first "please do the needful" in an email!
