I happen to play on-line bridge. On 9th June 2015, while I was playing, a on-line survey of 4 questions appeared. I answered those questions and was informed immediately that I was shortlisted for a lucky draw, provided I send across a sum of Rs.524 towards a delivery charge and the first prize was a SAMSUNG GALAXY Note 3 mobile. I happen to do on-line shopping. I was never cheated. In good faith I made an on-line payment. I was immediately allotted an order no. they called me up to state that the dispatch was on process.
On 15th June I sent across a mail to their customer care id, when I was intimated that a lottery would take place (not informed earlier) and the winner would only get the prize. The rest would receive a Ray Bran Goggles.
An office address was also given, but it does not exist.
My thought now is that if such cases of fraud keeps continuing, people will stop risking on line purchase in a short period of time to come.
