Beware of Fakes and Frauds
In July 2016, Delhi Police busted a gang running a fake transport company impersonating a leading packers and movers firm, and arrested four persons who allegedly duped several customers on the pretext of providing low-cost services. The gang used to lure customers offering low rates and then withheld the items unless they paid an inflated bill in the name of various taxes. Around the same time, another gang was arrested from Meerut. This gang was primarily into robberies. They would pose as a mover and packers company, get the entire household/office stuff packed, and run away with a loaded truck. Consumers are advised to do a thorough check of the company’s legal existence and do a reference check before dealing with a new or an unknown entity.
