Flipkart buyer orders iPhone 8, gets a detergent bar instead


In the latest incident of delivery frauds, a Flipkart buyer who ordered an iPhone 8 has reportedly received a detergent bar in the box. One Mr Tabrej Mehaboob Nagrali bought an iPhone 8 worth Rs. 55,000 on Flipkart, and upon the delivery of the order on 22 January, found that the box came with a detergent bar instead of his iPhone 8.

The Mumbai-based buyer has filed a case of cheating against the e-commerce portal Flipkart. According to Avinash Shingte, a senior inspector at the Byculla police station, “Nagrali approached us with a complaint yesterday, and an offence of cheating was registered against Flipkart.”

Delivery frauds are not new when it comes to online purchases – there have been numerous instances of delivered goods being totally different from what buyers ordered. On many instances, buyers have reported receiving detergent bars, bricks etc – this is seen most often in cases of smartphone purchases.
