[Update] So this was an April Fool’s prank after all as expected. This was the update posted today on Flipkart’s Facebook handle:
“We introduced our Delivery of Cash (DoC) service yesterday and we’re excited to know what you think! The first 1000 users who register will get a month’s free use of our DoC service*! Click here to avail the offer: http://fkrt.it/DOC-register“
The link leads to an ebook titled “A Fool and His Money”, a nice pun on words. Not many people really fell for this prank though.
Today Flipkart came out with an interesting update on its social profiles regarding a new Delivery of Cash (DOC) service.
“Two years after the launch of its era-changing Cash on Delivery option, Flipkart gears up to initiate its one-of-a-kind Delivery of Cash service. You no longer have to visit ATMs for that much needed money! Just go online or call our ever-ready personnel to get quick cash delivered home. And pay us with a simple swipe of your card!”
This was the info that has been shared so far.
