Since you've met the person who is hiring you (or when salary discussions come up) it may be worth mentioning that they are charging you this fee and are they aware of it. If this is a problem with them perhaps they'll be willing to "take the recruiter out of the picture".

Am thinking of calling up MoM to ask but am not sure whether they cover recruitment agencies as well.
Charging the job seeker for a successful job placement does sound fishy to me as well. But curiously enough, this agency has already been able to secure at least 2 interviews with the company for me (and it's with a big-name bank at that) so it certainly looks like they are a legit recruiter. I suppose it could be possible this recruiter is charging the employing company a lower rate in order to be more competitive than other recruiters, and charging me in order to make up for that "discount."
