Close on the heels of the advisories from Lenovo and Toshiba, the Cyber Police of Bangalore have also issued a warning against buying from e-commerce sites. All Airtel subscribers in Bangalore received the following message on Friday.

“Pls be careful when buying goods from online portals placed by others as you may be cheated by fraudsters” – Cyber Police, Bangalore

We really wonder what has prompted government to come up with this warning? Is it that the number of complaints against fraud practices has increased?

We’d love to talk to anyone who has faced such a situation or filed a complaint. Do get it in touch with us at team@nextbigwhat.com.
