The Zomato Food Delivery Scam
Recently, a Zomato user/ entrepreneur claimed he was informed by its food delivery agent not to pay online when he orders next. Apart from that, the delivery agent also advised the user how to cheat the company. Vinay Sati, the entrepreneur, took to LinkedIn and revealed everything about this massive fraud. He said he got “goosebumps” hearing what scam was happening at such a renowned company.
In the LinkedIn post, Mr. Sati wrote that he ordered burgers from Zomato a few days ago. Consequently, the delivery agent arrived and told him something that was absolutely astounding. He said, Mr. Sati,
“Sir, don’t pay online next time.”
The delivery agent further added,
“Next time when you will order food worth 700-800rs through COD (Cash On Delivery) you only have to pay 200rs for that. I will show it to Zomato that you have not taken the food but will also give you the food you ordered.”
Mr. Sati said in his Linkedin post quoting the delivery agent.
“Aap bas mujhe 200rs, 300rs de dena or 1000rs ke khane ke maje lena (You just pay me ₹ 200, 300 and enjoy food worth ₹ 1,000).”
