3 years ago I worked for a multinational Indian company, as an employee in india. I am British. A few months ago I was contacted by them stating that I had a Provident Fund accumulation to claim. I arranged for the sum to be sent by cheque via a friend in Delhi (they could not send it directly to the UK), but between Delhi & London the cheque was lost. Now the company are asking me for a 100Rs indemnity bond for them to cancel the cheque and reissue a new one, but I can't do that from the UK. They say I need an advocat in India, but I don't have one.
What do you suggest?
