There have been various instances when the customer has received bizarre stuff instead of the one they have placed online. Recently, a man from Bihar’s Nalanda claimed to have ordered a drone camera from the online shopping site Meesho but instead received potatoes. The incident is reported from the Parwalpur block on Sunday.
A man, identified as Chaitanya Kumar, said he ordered a DJI drone camera at a heavily discounted price from Meesho. He said the market value of the drone camera that he ordered was Rs 84,999 but he was getting it for Rs 10,212 on Meesho.
He said he even confirmed it with the company before placing an order. The company told him there was a huge offer and that’s the reason it was being given at such a low cost. After that, he made the full payment online.
Reports state when the delivery boy came with the order, the man found something suspicious as the parcel was too small. He then asked the delivery boy to open a parcel, and he videographed it. As soon as the delivery boy opened the parcel, he found 10 pieces of potatoes inside it.
The delivery boy in the video can be heard saying that he had brought the parcel from the Shadow Fax company.
Parwalpur SHO said appropriate action will be taken on this matter once they receive the application.
A similar incident happened where a man received detergent soap bars in place of a laptop he ordered for his father. The IIM graduate ordered his father a laptop from Flipkart’s Big Billion Days Sale but he received a few bars of Ghadi detergent soap bars. He stated that the company’s customer care is now blaming them for not checking the box before providing an OTP.
