[Resolved]  Quikr — some one using the name shikha purbey is trying to scam people

I got contacted by this lady, shikha purbey on quikr who wanted to purchase my item. I first got suspicious when she started putting "urgent" in every email she was sending me and was ready to pick up the item from delhi despite the ad being put on the bangalore portal.

She mentioned she is currently on a business visit to the uk and hence would not be able to connect via phone. Then she said that she will send me a cheque via courier and that i had nothing to fear. This is where i got really suspicious and started digging around.

I found the following complaints already which have a similar pattern:

https://www.consumercomplaints.in/quikr-got-trapped-c2036583
https://www.consumercomplaints.in/resale-scams-quikr-fraud-c2045210
https://www.consumercomplaints.in/quikr-some-scamster-is-using-shikha-purbe-name...

And to top it all, this person is actually using the name from their first victim to trap other people. Looking at the images posted, the address mentioned is the same for all of them!

So people please beware and quikr, i think should look into this matter at the earliest as this is not a one of occurrence.
