[Resolved]  Orange Properties — Harassment and Fraud

I purchased a sofa-set from Orange Properties through their store called "Orange Woods" in Bangalore on May 4, 2008 for an amount of Rs. 38, 000. According to the advertisements and as we were told on the date of purchase, a double bed, T.V. unit, center table and dining set would be provided free of cost along with the sofa-set under this package and the delivery of the consignment would be made within 15 days of making full payment. The full payment was made on May 7, 2008. We have not received the consigment till date despite various calls and visits to the factory and the office of the Company. We have been harrassed continuously by the Company, receiving calls once or twice a day, every day confirming the order, the colour of the fabrics, asking us for balance payments despite the fact that the payment has been made in full, confirming the delivery address etc. Further, on two occassions, we have received calls telling us that the consignment is on its way and to wait at home, whereas the consignment never arrived.

Please note that there has already been a complaint made with this forum by one Mr. Aman on June 2, 2008 regarding similar harassment suffered due to Orange Properties. A large number of consumers have suffered due to this act pulled by Orange Properties and i hope they are hauled up for it.

I face the same problem as you guys do. I booked a sofa-set for Rs. 25, 750 on 02 Aug 2008 and paid an advance of Rs.6, 000/-thro' my debit card. The sofa was due for delivery on 18 of Aug 2008 and every time I called at their M.G. Road office, the goons sitting there have been harassing me by giving a mouthful of -replies and promising some date of delivery as their mind fancies. There is not a single responsible person who can genuinely commit himself/herself to the job. Right from the due day of delivery, I have been in touch with the company and everytime one of their idiotic female staff who never know to handle their customers, talk some nonsense and get away. Whenever I asked them to connect to their senior, they would curtly say that their senior is not available. The senior being an ever-evading-expert Shaji Thomas. The other senior Mr.Manpreet has already left the company. All that I know is there is one mysterious Mr.Vijay who is said to be the M.D. of the company but is never available for the customers.There are a number of trained liars starting from Shilpa, Geetha, Anu and two most shameless marketing liar executives Bhavya and Nova who only market lies on behalf of their company and spew only arrogance. I have demanded them to return my money by way of cash. But they insist that they would return the money only by way of cheque. I asked them, that when they could not deliver the sofa set in time, what guarantee is there that their cheque would not bounce? I also asked them that, would they accept cheque from the customers? So I told them firmly that if they can demand cash or card payment from the customers, I too would follow the same rule and would settle only for cash. I am genuinely looking for some media person to come and help such harassed customers and bring the frauds to the public view so that others would be saved from becoming a prey to these rascals.
Orange properties: Granity properties
It has become soo common and easy for such kind of fraudesters to survey in here. As a matter of fact that it looks like everyone is watching but, still DO NOT KNOW anything. Sad state that we are in...

It is very easy to market anything and everything GOOD/BAD/UGLY in here. Any thing for money. Just as a matter of fact observe the trend...First the company open publicly announces in various means of media that their is such a BIG BONANZA event [along with disclaimer saying "we are fraud/cheaters and read our ways of cheating document before falling into the pit] which is happening in the city in a large scale. The company achieves their first frauding milestone, Secondly, they create a hipe when you visit the place and the event is happening with Dhamaka cheating for multiple weeks and pay your advance cheque etc., ...another milestone achieved

Question which needs answer:
How can media announce such a BIG BONANZA cheating?...may be an obligation that they have got cheated as well :-P
How can public servants wash their hands after all the MASS cheating is completed? [eg., BDA released the advertisement stating "DO NOT buy properties" after many people have made their first or second round of investments?
What was BDA doing up-until 1 or 2 weeks since the time when media announcement were made publically?? via Air, Televisions, Magazines etc., ???? can BDA do the duedelegence well before the cheating act is compelted?
Is their any Govt., regulations at all for such people who swindle large money? This reminds of Stock Scam [1980's] when there were NO regulations for Stocks...can their be something of the same for this now? is there a way that they could do any duedelegence?
Has it become so easy to Cheat each other in here?
Various Banks comes forward during the launch to claim that they support these fraudesters during the Launch, Does Banks do any duedelegence at all??
Cheques would get MASS BOUNCED, has this become so common and NO action around this?
Consumer courts takes its own sweet time for resolving the complaints
These fraduesters close their company and abscond!!!


SO, for common man it looks like the only place to go is HELL!!!
