Fraud alert: Beware of smart deals and lucky draws by online shopping sites
Resident of South Delhi's Jangpura area, Anurag Sharma, who bought the latest smartphone from an e-commerce website on his birthday, was on cloud-nine after a customercare executive informed him that he has won a smart-television as a result of his recent purchase.
"During Republic Day sale, I bought a phone for Rs 37,000. 10 days later, I got a call from an executive who informed me that based on my previous shopping I had won latest smart TV. But to get it, I had to make a pre-payment of GST which was Rs 5,500," said Sharma. Little did he know that he was the latest victim to cyber fraud.
