Timtara.com Online Shopping Fraud


Interesting expose about timtara.com-India on CNBC. Sorry that the program is in Hindi, I am trying to get a English version.

Re: Timtara.com Online Shopping Fraud

Even as we speak about it right now i bet that several hundreds-thousands of indians are visiting the site drooling over the "discounts". The media needs to do something about this asap! Perhaps a nation-wide awareness?
And oh @myakosha on twitter has been RT'ing complaints regarding Timtara.

Re: Timtara.com Online Shopping Fraud

had been following this thread previously: Boom boom boom :d
but unfortunately forgot the website name & fell right into their trap
had ordered a vacuum cleaner from the website a couple of weeks back. their shipping period was 3 weeks which i thought they would atleast deliver by. they soon sent me a mail in couple of days after order that its awaiting shipment but status of order hasnt changed since then. called them a couple of times regarding this, but they said it wud b delivered within 3 weeks. 3 weeks time isnt up yet, but then it struck me & again checked up on that Boom boom boom thread to realise it was timtara. tried calling them again, but both the call centre no's disconnect my call after i select 1 for hindi or 2 for english.

wow, i walked right into them. feel like kickin myself

now, should i wait the remaining few days to complete the 3 weeks before doing anything?
or should i just ask them for refund OR consider legal action?

Re: Timtara.com Online Shopping Fraud

thinking of waiting for 3 weeks to complete. will call them tomorrow & check if they are cutting my call on purpose, by also calling from another number. after 3 weeks, will convey to them another 1 week to refund me. or else was thinking of taking the legal route. they owe me rs.8999/-
everyone learns their lesson, maybe its time they learn theirs. lets see which way this goes.

Wait for 3 weeks and go ahead and send them a legal notice through fax, email and RPAD.

Re: Timtara.com Online Shopping Fraud

get a lawyer jaydip.

this is why i always advice people to test waters with small amounts. spend rs 500 max. i know rs500 isnt much but its better than spending rs 15000 like a fool.
