Flipkart Scammers now trying to scam people via twitter! Here is the complete story
Flipkart which is always in the headlines because of offers and sometimes bad experiences of customers is yet again in the news. However, this time it’s the scammers who are trying to use Flipkart’s name to scam innocent customers.
Here is what happened
Today on Twitter, a suspicious Twitter account tagged us on Twitter that if you need help contact this secondary customer care number. This was out of the ordinary as we publish news, not customer feedback.
The suspicious Twitter account posted on our Twitter page Dear Customer, “We regret the inconvenience you have . Request you to share your contact number via DM and we shall get in touch with you at the Flipkart customer support Calling four secondary number 8590342331 Thank you !
How do we know it’s a scam?
First of all the Twitter account has no followers and is not even verified. Secondly, the username is quite funny which is @Flipkard2. There is no banner on its Twitter account and the whole thing looked suspicious and a big no-no.
We as a responsible news media house informed Twitter via its official Twitter handle and also tagged twitter support to take a look into this matter. So far this account is still running and when we visited this account it has been working quite well. This account has been tagging anyone with the Flipkart name attached to their tweet. So far there has been no update from Flipkart or Twitter on this matter.
So it’s better to spread the word out there so that innocent people can be saved from this new scam. Also, inform your elders not to talk or share any personal details over the phone with anyone.
