I received an SMS in it informing me that I have won a "Pearl Set Worth M.R.P. Rs.2500/. Absolutely Free." and I have to send "SMS LUCKY" to 56263042. These guys are small time fraudsters pearl set order form GHANSHYAMDAS JEWELLERS Since a gift worth "Rs.2500" is more "believable" some may think it is "genuine". After some Googling I came across "victims" saying that after sending the redemption reply, they asked for Rs.525 as "postal, insurance & handling charges" for sending it via courier. Someone even received the packet after a few days as Cash on Delivery was available and they received a very cheap looking pearl set.
Since cash on delivery option is available, we have the right to deny if the product is not 100% genuine as claimed in their "winners message" and the package can be send back to them in a polite way forcing them to incure loss on their shipment cost.
I have also recieved a massage from PPIPL & there no number mentioned, is asking me to send my Name/ Address to 5667745 if i am ready to pay postal & delivery charges worth Rs.525.00.
Please guide me what shall i do, , ??
