Vastraqueen — Fraud and non-refund of amount
I ordered a Gray Color Sequins Work Party Wear Designer Saree from the official website of Vastraqueen worth Rs. 1299, for Rs. 1099 (discount of Rs. 200 on prepaid order) on March 6, 2021. (screenshot of mail attached). The product order ID is 134877.
I got the delivery on March 11, 2021 (screenshot of mail attached), but the received product (photo attached) was not same as the product shown on the website. I tried calling on the no. provided by them but it was switched off.
As, I was not satisfied with the product, on March 12, 2021, I sent a mail on their customer support email ID stating the same; on which they asked me to whatsapp my problem on [protected]. I messaged them the whole issue asking them either to refund my money or provide me the same product which was shown on their website, otherwise I'll file a case against them in Consumer Court. They told me that they won't return the amount as they have delivered the ordered product and when I shared the pictures of the ordered and received products claiming that they aren't same; they told me that the product shown on their website is for Rs. 12 lacs. I again asked them to refund my money as I have already returned the product via courier (through FedEx, bearing the courier charges). In response, they started giving me vague answers and then they stopped responding. Next day, on March 13, 2021, when I still didn't get any response, I asked them for Escalation Matrix but again.. my message was ignored. At last, I told them that I'm gonna sue them for this fraud but got ignored again.
The desirable resolution for my complaint would be either to get the same product I ordered through their website or to get my money back including courier charges I paid to return that product.
For reference, I'm hereby attaching the Whatsapp chat with them:

3/12/21, 19:16 - Bharti: Are you kidding me...??????
On your website, you guys are offering that same saree for Rs 1299 only. I have all the proofs that you have shown that saree for Rs. 1299 but sent me another one..and now when I'm asking for the refund you're saying to exchange it with another one.. but not with the product shown in the picture claiming that the product is for Rs. 12 lacs.
It's not my fault that you're showing something else and sending something else.
Now, I want my complete refund including my courier charges.
Or else, I'll go to Consumer court with all the proofs.
3/12/21, 19:16 - Vastra Queen: Thank you for your message. We’re unavailable right now, but will respond as soon as possible.

3/13/21, 12:20 - Bharti: ???
3/13/21, 12:21 - Bharti: I'm just asking for your escalation matrix
3/13/21, 12:24 - Vastra Queen: what is that.
3/13/21, 12:27 - Bharti: Oh God...🙄
I'm asking for your supervisor's/manager's details
3/13/21, 12:58 - Bharti: Still...no response

Same thing happened to me. I guess it's a fraud website chain. We should definitely file a strong scam and fraud case against them.
