This is an era of online shopping, millions of dollars of funding, amazing discounts and deals. Amidst all this, the black companies are also blooming themselves by providing fake deals and offer which seems completely irresistible for any online shopper. 

 

 

A company named as BIGSOP.com has been busted by The Central Crime Branch Police in Bangalore. After receiving several complaints over Twitter, Crime Branch has raided and shutdown the fake e-commerce site. According to Mr. Abhishek Goyal, "Bigsop A/c has 75lac at present. Cheated 100s based on fake 599 offer"

The e-commerce site derived a brilliant way to trap its visitor by flashing pop-up ads saying that they have won an iPhone for Rs 599. 

Once registered on the website, User's money is converted into into store credits. A baffled user when ask for the iphone he should be getting, BIGSOP.com revert the request by saying that at Rs 599 they could not give the iPhones so the customers was nearly compelled to buy home some product costing Rs 599 due to his money in store credit.

Hence, stay alert, stay sharp and shop smart
