Orders 166 phones and claims refund

After an inquiry, the police filed a case in August.

Chopra, who is a hotel management graduate from Delhi's Rohini college, failed to get a permanent job and that's when this idea struck his mind.

However, within few hours, he used to report to Amazon that he has received an empty packet, and used to claim refunds.

The Delhi Police have arrested a 21-year-old youth for duping famous e-commerce website Amazon.According to the police, the accused, identified as Shivam Chopra, used to order expensive mobile phones and after getting them delivered, he used to register complaints of getting empty boxes to raise a refund.

Other than Shivam, a small telecom store owner Sachin Jain age 38 was also arrested because the store owner had supplied him almost 141 activated SIM for placing the order from Amazon. "Shivam Chopra made 166 orders from different numbers and profiles on Amazon on the pre-activated sims provided by Sachin Jain", said police. In a statement, an Amazon India spokesperson said, "We continue to work closely with the Delhi police and thank them for all their efforts in the investigation".

In a shocking case, two Delhi men falsely obtained refunds from e-commerce giant Amazon on 166 mobile phones.

British jihadi 'White Widow' killed by United States drone: Sun report
The pair, known as Mr and Mrs Terror, were previously part of a hacking collective in the United Kingdom known as "TeaMp0isoN". Like Jones, Hussain was also killed in a drone strike in 2015, after serving as leader of ISIS' hacking arm.

After Amazon initiated an internal enquiry, police started a manhunt for this scamster, and was able to arrest him yesterday, and slapped various sections of Indian Penal Code.

When police finally caught him, they recovered Rs 12 lakh in cash, 19 mobile phones, and 40 passbooks of various banks from his home. After placing the order from some random area he would guide the delivery man to a place where he would accept the package and pay with cash.

Once Shivam used to get the refund money he would sell his phones on another marketplace such as OLX or Gaffer on the second hand.

The duo, now arrested by Delhi Police, have been identified as Shivam Chopra and his accomplice Sachin Jain, residents of city's Tri Nagar.

During interrogation, he disclosed the name of his accomplice who used to supply him pre-activated sims and many phones to make orders.

From each purchase, Chopra made a two-fold profit- once by receiving the refund and later by selling the phone without its box and documents.
