A 21-year-old has been arrested for allegedly duping Amazon India by ordering expensive phones and then claiming refunds after alleging that he received an empty box, on Tuesday.

Sources said that Chopra, plagued by unemployment, began the fraud in March this year when, as a way to test his plan, he ordered two mobile phones from Amazon, sought a refund from the e-tailer and got refund vouchers in return without any hassles. The cops had to trace mobile numbers used to make calls, question locals and take the help of Amazon delivery boys to identify Chopra. His 38-year-old accomplice, who used to provide SIM cards to Shivam Chopra, for placing orders on the e-commerce portal, was also arrested, they added. It was revealed that he had sold all other devices to buyers in the notorious Gaffar Market, or on the online marketplace OLX.

As per police, Shivam Chopra was successful in making approximately Rs 50 lakh in the span of two months. "He used to order costly mobile phones of different companies like Samsung, I phone, 1 Plus etc", DCP north west Milind Mahadeo Dumbere said. After receiving the order, Shivam would call up Amazon and claim that he received empty boxes and ask for the refund, the police claimed.

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.

25 percent voting in Gurdaspur LS by-election, minor clashes
Polling for the high-pitched by-election in the parliamentary constituency of Gurdaspur in Punjab began on Wednesday. Voters could be seen standing in the queues at various polling booths across the constituency.

Police sources said that all delivery addresses given by Chopra were of places around his actual Tri Nagar residence.

He used to order expensive smartphones from Amazon, and chose cash on delivery. The police have recovered 19 mobile phones, 12 lakhs in cash and 40 bank passbooks and cheques from the house of Chopra who resides in the Tri Nagar area of Delhi. When Amazon realised it was being deceived, it approached Delhi Police. Sensing that his plan could be executing easily, Chopra then began ordering expensive mobile phones from the online portal - placing orders from handsets manufactured by companies like Apple, Samsung and OnePlus - and then cooking up some excuse to demand a refund.
