GUWAHATI: Miscreants created a fake Facebook page in the name of Kiranshree sweets & snacks and offered 2 thalis free in a price of single thali. The Facebook post carried a photograph of sumptuous thalis and also provided a phone number. The post read, “BUY 1 THALI GET 2 THALI FREE IN YOUR FIRST ORDER CALL NOW-9933445320.”
After the post went viral, Kiranshree Sweets and Snacks outlets in Guwahati started to receive endless phone calls from the customers. The sweet seller has clarified that it is not giving any such offer and termed it as fraud.
“It is a fake message. We have filed an FIR at Bharalumukh Police Station,” said Kiranshree while talking to News Live.
According to a customer, after calling the number mentioned in the fake post, the person asked her to make payment online and sent her a link.
Earlier, miscreants resorted to same means in the name of Makhan Bhog Restaurant also.
