21-year-old youth dupes Amazon India

As per police, Amazon grew suspicious after the refund request started originating from the same location in Delhi's North West region.

Shivam Chopra, a hotel management graduate, allegedly sought refunds on 225 mobile phones and managed to get it 166 times, as per a statement from Milind Dumbere, DCP (north-west), reported by Hindustan Times. He would then ask the delivery person to meet him at another place or a shop to receive his order, following which he would call Amazon India customer care to make his claims.
