Working on Arrears or any issues with Payslip from CAGD

  • Never trust anyone that calls you to help you get your arrears or promotion. Controller does not have a collective center.
  • In case you want to give it a try, do not give your Payslip Password out. Anyone that claims to work at the controller and wants to help you with arrears or any related issues only needs your Staff ID. If he or she asks for anything else, consider them to be Fraudsters.
    A true worker would get access to every detail about you with just your ID. Your name would probably be for confirmation.
  • The deal must not be phone affairs but one-on-one for fraud check sake.
  • If you give out you ID and password, they would generate mandate form from your payslip and take loan in your name without your notice.
  • If they promise to work payment of arrears for you for commission and you give them your password, you may receive money and pay them their cut but what you have received is not arrears but loan. Wait for deductions.
  • Do not be deceived to believe persons that calls you claiming to be from contoller for a mear fact that they can mention your name, date of birth school or district. Remember your employment details are flying everywhere on social media, it’s not magic.

Mandate Form is like your signature, an authority note or undertaking, that your payslip is programmed to generate which when given to controller means you have agreed for controller to deduct an agreed amount from your salary for a third party organization for a certain duration.
