[Resolved] Nokia — FAKE NOKIA MOBILES AT SANGEETHA
I am writing this post to caution all of the people who want to buy mobiles from sangeetha mobile stores.
I went to buy a Nokia 5320 Music Xpress phone on 04-Jan-2009(Sunday) at about 8.30pm at sangeetha mobiles @ Indiranagar, Bangalore. This mobile costs around Rs. 11, 100/- in Nokia Priority Shop. In sangeetha mobiles, they offered it for Rs. 11, 350/- with some kind of Insurance. Actually, the main reason why I came here was for the sake of insurance. There was absolutely no question of bargaining. So, I thought I`ll spend around 200-300 extra for insurance. I asked him to Bill.
So, nicely and innocently those sales guys packed my mobile. I paid my bill using my father`s credit card. I simply happened to check the IMEI number of my handset and that which is printed on my Bill. To my shock, both these numbers were Different. I was completely tensed and felt cheated. Really, Tears came out of my eyes as I am purchasing this phone with my first salary. I went to cashier and asked him for a explanation. He is asking me "Why are you bothered about IMEI number on the bill?" I immediately warned all the customers there and we opened the box.
You won't believe, it was clearly a duplicate Chinese make phone that doesn`t have an IMEI number when we press *#06#. I`ll tell you, SANGEETHA MOBILES ARE RUNNING A FAKE MOBILE PHONE RACKET. ALL THIER PHONES AND SEALS ARE TAMPERED. I threw the bill on his face and cancelled my credit card transaction. Please, Please, Please, don't buy Mobiles from re-sellers such as Sangeetha, Univercell, Mobile Stores, Subhiska, Hot-Spot. Just shell out 200-300 Rs extra and buy it from Original Nokia Priority Dealers. All these offers of insurance are just gimmicks. I hope my experience will teach you people a lesson and save money and time. I don't want to disclose my name or identity as I spoke the truth.
