Recently four men were accused of duping e-commerce giant Amazon. The forgers cheated with an amount worth Rs 70 lakh. The matter came to light when Amazon filed a complaint with the Koramangala police. The accused persons include two assistant managers of the third-party service provider.
In his complaint, Nishad Sharma has identified four men namely Ravi Kumar, Sonu, Mohammed Anwar, and Shiv Naik. The FIR mentions that two of the accused are assistant managers with a Koramangala-based third-party service provider
According to reports, the accused used Amazon’s “Returns, Refunds and Replacement” policy to steal close to Rs 70 lakh from the e-commerce giant. Since Amazon refunds customers who receive either damaged or substandard quality goods, Anwar and Naik who were in charge of such refunds used the policy to line their own pockets. At the time, all of the accused are absconding.
With the help of the two others accused in the case, Naik and Sharma purchased several different commodities and returned them only after replacing them with fake ones. The fraud came to light only after Amazon executives began checking the products that were sent with the fake products returned to the company by the accused.
