Amidst the marking down of valuation and exiting of investors, ecommerce marketplace Flipkart is facing yet another trouble from consumers.
In a complaint filed by Flipkart, four people were arrested from Telangana’s Warangal district for allegedly cheating on Flipkart by ordering high-end cell phones and then replacing them with fake ones and claiming refund.
The accused have been identified as Gajjela Srinivasulu Reddy, MD Fazaluddin, J Ashok Kumar, and Sayyad Jaleel, who were earlier working with Flipkart in Nellore in the past. The people held under suspicion admitted that they took advantage of the lacunae in the company’s system to deliver and return products.
How Did It All Happen?
Explaining about the complete incident, Warangal Police Commissioner G Sudheer Babu said that the accused placed orders for high-end mobile phones from the company’s website under fictitious names and email Ids.
After the delivery of the product, they used to call up the customer care saying that the handset was not functioning properly or it was damaged and sought refund.
