After going through advertisment of 100bestbuy.com, that is, easy 100% Cash Back if not winning
I have paid, Rs.399/- on 23/11/2013 to participate in the contest for one Appeal i.Phone-5, on Rs.199/-
on 02/12/2013 to participate for a Blackberry Play station ( Talbet). In both the cases, 100bestbuy has sent me, two coupons. As, on 28/11/2013, one executive informed me over phone that, as I was
shortlisted for the contest, as well as, I had one I Ball tablet, I have to pay then another Rs.7999/-
so that, the company would ship the I ball Tablet. As, I declined to pay any extra amount,then which
was mentioned as the conditions when iI participated in the contest, nest day I got a mail that my order was cancelled for the I Ball tablet. Thus, I, became suspicios on yhe integrity of the company and
for which I had requested for the Refund of the amount paid.
However, I received a mail from the company that, as I have participated in the contest, I have to wait till 15th December, 2013. And,04/12/2013, one of the executive of the company inform me over
phone that,I have won the Blackberry Tablet, and, on 15th December, formally I will be intimated,
however, the BlackBerry Tablet costs more than the cost on the BlackBerry Playtime ( Tablet )
I should confirm the payment of the extra amount. Which, I declined. Any way as I find that,
the total amount of Rs. 598/ 9 Rs.399/-+Rs.199/-), which used to be removed from the site at
My Account as well as the My Credits, as per the terms of Condition of contest , I became sure
that I have won the Contest. However,on several mails, to confirm me the winning in the contest
per mails. But,the company never responded to my mails, rather, they send mails that, there were
my order are pend with them and they are sending. Hence, called to to company and asked one of the
executive on 09/12/2013, that, the company must confirm me my winning as I was intimated on 04/11/2013, then find, that, since my payment of Rs. 598/- and credits are back tomy Acount.
Now, I am sure, a grouph of vheats have started this company,only to cheat the people , by give
false and fake advertisements. As, such act of the company amounts to fraudaleting cheating cheating
alsoindulging in unfair trade practice.
So, I have decided to make an FIR at Orissa Police ( Crime & Cyber Crime) and a complain case
before the SDJM, to take cognizance and to issue warrant and Before the District Consumer Forum
under Sec. 2(1)(r).
Please any expert/s give his/her/their views.
