Miscreants are blatantly taking advantages of the refund policy being provided by E-commerce websites. Recently a man was arrested on January 30, 2019, for allegedly deceiving Amazon to the tune of Rs 30 Lakh in Indore.

The 27-year-old man was arrested after Amazon filed a complaint against him, said the Madhya Pradesh’s cyber cell superintendent of police (SP) Jitendra Singh, reported NDTV. A sub-inspector of cyber police further mentioned that investigation is being carried out on some suspected employees working in Amazon’s local warehouse.

How did they do?

Arrested person identified as Mohammed Mahuwala was a member of a gang, who created multiple fake Amazon accounts with the help of false e-mail IDs and mobile numbers. It is through these accounts the gang used to order expensive gadgets such as smartphones. After receiving the products, they used to complain to Amazon, saying that the parcel they received was empty. The e-commerce giant after receiving the complaints used to refund the money back. However, in reality, those products were taken out of the parcel and were sold to the local shopkeepers at a lower price.

What was recovered?

Mr Singh said that the gang duped Amazon to get a complete refund. Singh further said that as of now the police has found out that the gang ordered 50 gadgets costing around Rs 30 lakh and received a refund of the same amount fraudulently. He mentioned that the police found two expensive branded mobile phones, a wireless router, a headphone, two smartwatches, and a credit card from the accused. The probe is underway to arrest other gang members.
