How did you pay the deposit? Do you have the real estate agency details? Do you also have that person's RERA registration number? If yes, then you need to visit the RERA office to lodge a complaint. They will call him for you and get your deposit back. Do you have a receipt for the deposit?

Hi,
What sort of company does she work for - if it is not a real estate agent?
Cheers

Hi,
OK - so under what capacity did you pay her a deposit?
Was she acting as an agent between you and a landlord?
Or was she letting you share a room in the place that she lives in?
How much deposit did you pay and why did you actually need to pay a deposit - what was it for?
Cheers
Steve

Hi,
You need to send her a text message stating that she either pays you back the deposit immediately or give you the access key - or you will be opening a police case.
Hopefully - she will realize that you are serious and will stop messing you about.
If you have the office address - then go there and sit in their reception until they give you what you have paid for.
Don't let them walk over you.
Best of luck
Steve

Hi,
Take everything you have and open a police case - it sounds like you have been conned.
How did you find the place - if by an advert, you need to print this as well.
Cheers

Hi,
If it was over whatsup - how did you find the place?
Did you whatsup her first after seeing an advert?
Take the whatsup messages with you to the police, along with all the paperwork.
If you have her mobile number - the police might be able to trace her.
Cheers

Most probably her phone is switched off because not every whats app is on the same number. Did you try to message her on whats app again ?

I don't see any chances you getting back those 5K.

Hi,
You still did not say how she contacted you - did you place an advert - or did you reply to one?
