Shivam cheated Amazon India by obtaining refund against the order placed earlier for mobile phones

The Delhi Police have arrested a 21-year-old youth for duping famous e-commerce website Amazon.

According to the police, the accused, identified as Shivam Chopra, used to order expensive mobile phones and after getting them delivered, he used to register complaints of getting empty boxes to raise a refund. The Delhi Police have also recovered 25 mobile phones, claiming that he allegedly ordered 166 phones from April to May this year, which is yet to be recovered.

Shivam allegedly also purchased almost 150 pre-activated SIM cards to order the phones. According to the police, Shivam’s friend Sachin Jain has also been arrested, who used to help him.

“Shivam cheated Amazon India by obtaining refund against the order placed earlier for mobile phones. He used to order costly mobile phones of different companies like Samsung, i-phone, 1 Plus, etc,” DCP north-west Milind Mahadeo Dumbere said.

“The company alleged that a total of 166 orders for mobile phones were placed. All the orders were purchased by this perpetrator through gift cards and later, he cancelled the order to claim refunds, which were again refunded to him in the form of gift cards,” Dumbere added.
