First of all, it is important that you report the issue to the police as soon as possible. Once the police have filed an FIR, you and the police can go ahead with the investigation process. Reporting will also help get the scam to shut down and may help you progress in getting your money back. You can sue this person for false promises. Misleading statements can land a person in court for negligent misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or other legal issues. You do not always need written evidence to prove false promises. Sometimes, spoken words, recruiting tactics, emails, meetings, or other messages can count as false statements that land a person in trouble. Whether intentional or unintentional, if you were promised something that would have resulted in more money, you might be able to claim damages.
You can make a legal claim for "fraudulent inducement of employment" if the person has defrauded you into giving him money in exchange for a job. As long as the change is based on the person's false statements, you have a claim. You will need to prove: the person's intention, the misrepresentation (whether written or verbal), how the promises made you decide to do something, how you relied on the false promises, and the amount of damages you suffered?
Now since they could not prove that he took the money from them and falsely promised them jobs, nothing can be done. Evidence is very important to make a person get the punishment they deserve. The law is blind and equal to everyone. It only relies on strong and unaltered evidence to decide who is punished and who is left scot-free. Thus, if you still want to pursue this person, you need to find proof against him.
