cheating done by telco trading company
Having read the advertisement in Times of India, I came to know about the business opportunity offered by Telco Trading Co. I called them up to have complete details about the company as well as the opportunity they intended to provide. They took my personal details like my name & address in order to send the company’s booklet.It is a registered company.they deal with paper plate machines and dona sales.
After going through the terms & conditions in the booklet, I came to know that the company dealt in manufacturing & trading of Dona Paper Plates. The offer put up by the company was I will have to pay for the machine of our choice which they will supply me and they would even provide raw materials for preparing Dona Paper Plates. After preparing the plates, I will have to send those to the company which would pay Rs.320/- as labour charges and Rs. 30/- as transportation charges for every 1000 pcs sent. On having a telephonic talk with an employee named Bhavna, she informed me that they would send a technician who will provide complete training. The technician’s expenses were to be borne by me. On booking the machine, I would have to pay Rs. 20000/- and then when the technician would come, an agreement was to be executed and the remaining amount was to be paid.
They do have their website www.telcotradingco.com. I even inquired about their registration number. The registration no. given by them was 07930397612. After going into the details of the offer, I booked one Semi- Automatic Double Die machine costing Rs. 59000/-. While booking, I paid cash of Rs. 10000/- in HDFC Bank A/c 20402000000160 which is in the name of Telco trading Co. & another Rs. 10000/- in HDFC Bank A/c 02921000058540 which is in the name of Suresh Sharma. The former account has been opened at Naraina Vihar Branch and the latter at Rajori Garden Branch. Other bank A/c detail which was sent to me was Canara Bank Alc 2846201000168. This A/c was in the name of Suresh Fabricators and was opened at Naraina Vihar Branch. These three Account details they have provided it to me. There could be many other accounts which they would have provided to other customers. I request you to inquire into the same.
I received the machine on 03.04.2012. The invoiced amount for machine was Rs. 19710/- whereas the amount shown in booklet which we were supposed to pay was Rs. 59000/-. The transportation cost of Rs. 4270/- had to be paid by me of which I was not previously informed of by the company. I informed about the arrival of the machine to the company and requested them to send the technician. Till the time I had booked our machine, Bhavna was talking very nicely to me. But once the booking was done, she started showing her colors. For the next two days, I continuously called them up regarding the same when an employee named Lakshmi informed me that they would send the trainer within 2-3 days. But as this did not happen, I called them up again. They did not pick up the call on seeing my number. Finally, Lakshmi picked my call on 10.04.2012. When I inquired about the trainer, she asked me to call her Sir Suresh Sharma. Till that time I had only talked to two people i.e. Bhavna & Lakshmi.
On calling him, he said that it was not possible for him to send a trainer. Instead he told me to come to Delhi and have the training there. As this was not possible for me, I informed him that I will initiate legal actions. He told me to return the machine and gave me life threatening ‘Dhamkis’. On having all these conversations, I feel that they are trying to defraud the customers. It’s not only me but there could be many customers whom they might have defrauded.
I request you to take necessary actions at the earliest.
