    SNAPDEAL: Ponzi Scheme – Biggest Mistake – A Fraud – A Thug – Trust Pay Means Nothing – Please Do Not Trust

    Order no: 2485294102 Complaint No: 8197846

    They did not pack a laptop worth Rs 50437 properly.
    No coordination with their Courier who returned their product to them without delivering it to me.
    They did not initiate refund in 7 days and kept lying everyday that I
    will receive my money tomorrow. The tomorrow hasn’t come in 7 days yet.

    executive: Pradeep Tripathi promised me today that refund will be
    initiated within 48 hours.I will get the money after further 5-7 days.
    Please pray that I do get my money.

    I believe they are working on a business model which allows
    them to raise money interest free for short term by taking orders and
    not fulfilling them and making your refund after weeks till they need
    the fund. Its a fraud scheme.
    They will not read your emails, will seldom reply and in case they
    do reply, they have a pre formatted reply which they will forward
    without answering any of your questions
    they will keep you on
    hold for hours and will waste your time and will not help your in any
    manner and will give you false assurances.
    I request you to not be fooled by them and do not buy products at Snapdeal.
    have caused me losses due to laptop not available on time, Blocked my
    funds for half a month as of now, My time which I have wasted on your
    amazing customer care, mental harassment caused by you.
