Gokul Ayurvedic — Cheated with ayurveda medicine charging 1.7 Lakh rupees
Pune, Pune District, Maharashtra, India
I'm a married software professional living in Pune. My wife had a brain tumor and was operated multiple times for various health issues and she has facial paralysis on her left-part of the face.
On September 22, 2012, I went to Star Bazaar at Phoenix Market City Viman nagar Pune along with my wife to purchase some items. One stranger (Deepak) suddenly spoke with me asking whether my wife had some illness related to brain tumor as he observed that my wife had facial paralysis. He told that his sister also had the same problem about 10 yrs ago and was cured by ayurveda medicine and she is very healthy now. He told that if you want the same for your wife we can help you out and we don't want any single rupee. Willing to see my wife healthy I said yes and asked for more details of the medicine. He said his brother (Ajay) knows better than him about the medicine and gave his number and took my number and said that I will get a call from his brother in the evening.
Later in the evening, his brother (Ajay) called me and explained the story that their sister had Brain Tumor & facial paralysis 10 yrs ago and none of the english medicines cured her. One day they happened to meet a phakir and that phakir after looking at his sister suggested a ayurveda medicine and assured that it will be cured in 3 months. It has some process mixing Roses, Badam, Elachi, Haldi etc.,., in a boiling coconut oil. He told me that if we are interested he would come to our house and prepare this oil and tell the instructions for usage. We said ok for that. He said that the you will see a difference in the patient in 15 days but you still have to continue this for 3 months. He also told that it should not be revealed to anyone (as told by phakir it seems) other than your family otherwise the medicine will not work
Next day, Ajay came to our house and we got the items ready for that oil. He prepared the oil and told that we need to go to Ayurveda shop in Bund garden to mix the ayurveda medicines in this boiling oil so that medicine is ready and mentioned that he doesn't memorize the name of the medical shop but knows the location. So, I took him in my bike carrying that boiled oil to the Gokul Ayurveda shop at Ashoka Mall, Bund garden. We went inside the shop and he (Ajay) told a list of 7 ayurveda medicine names each 20 gms total costing around 1.7 Lakhs. The medical shop guy also gave a guaranty of 80 % of amount refund if it is not cured in 3 months & 15 days (have a receipt as well mentioning the same). Since it had a refund and guaranty as well so I went ahead and purchased by paying the amount and mixing the medicines in the oil. They gave me a receipt mentioning the names of ayurveda medicine and their respective amounts and also said that I will be getting a main bill from their main office in a month or so. Also said that a ayurveda doctor from their office will be visiting my home 2 times after 1 1/2 months & 2 1/2 months to check whether the medicine is curing or not.
As suggested by Ajay I had started applying the oil alternate days before sleep at specified locations of my wife's body from Sep 23, 2012. On Nov 1, 2012, I called up the ayurveda shop to find out why the main bill is not yet sent and was told that they will check the details and call me back next day. I never got a call back. Next day, I called up again and was told that bill is dispatched from the main office and should be delivered in few days.
We were out of town for couple of weeks but carried that medicine with us and continue to apply. Once I came back in the 1st week of December, I called the medical shop to find out what happened to the main bill and also there was no call to schedule an appointment for the doctor visit. No one responded to my calls. Either the phone was busy always or no one picks it up. I had tried for 2-3 days like this and got the same response and felt something is definitely wrong with this. I went to the Gokul Ayurveda shop at Bund Garden. I was surprised the shop was closed and there was no shop with such name anymore. I spoke with the adjacent shop keeper and was told that this medical shop was vacated about a month ago. I immediately called Deepak & Ajay multiple times but even their phones were switched-off. I spoke with multiple people in Ashoka Mall and couple of them told that the medical shop was a fraud and couple of people like me also visited for the same and they heard that medical shop was shifted to Connaught place in Bund Garden. So I went to connaught place immediately only to find that even from there also they had vacated about a week ago. I don't know what to do.
I'm cheated and none of the medical shops contact numbers are responding. Please help me I have saved that money for my wife's health and now everything is lost.
Let me know if you need additional information to proceed
