The crazy deal and discounts is something which lurks people to go for an online route for shopping. Every ecommerce site tries really hard to offer best of prices and discounts to bring shoppers to their platform, and we all have seen this thing during the BigBillionDay last month, the cat fight kind of situation between Flipkart, Snapdeal, Amazon and others. But sometimes it happens that a crazy deal ends up people into nothing but getting fooled.
Wouldn’t you go mad if you get an opportunity to buy an iPhone for just INR 599?
An ecommerce website named Bigsop.Com (looks like an error in the name itself), recently duped a number of people by using an ICICI Bank payment gateway and advertising on its pop-ups saying, ‘You are the lucky internet winner of iPhones for Rs. 599.’
Not going for such awesome deals is something people are not resistant to, so 100s of people went on and registered themselves on the website and made the payment, but in the end received nothing.
When confronted by their users the website instead suggested the customers take home some product costing INR 599. This was something that the shoppers weren’t happy about and felt cheated, thus went out on social media to throw out their aggression.
Based on the inputs received via Twitter about the website on cheating people by offering huge discounts on goods, the Central Crime Branch police in Bangalore raided its office based located near the Agara lake in South-East Bangalore.
