“I bought clothes from a well-known brand online. When the item came, it was clear that there was a problem with the size. I asked to return. They sent someone to collect the product. After about 15 to 20 days, the online shopping company called and said that they have not received the product,” Rohatgi said.

Rohatgi said that she looked up the number for customer service on Google and contacted the support staff.

“I even had a live chat with a manager and talked to their executive. I was told that I couldn’t get the product because I hadn’t filled out a form. They shared a link to process the return of product. When I clicked on the link, I was asked to pay Rs 10 for ‘courier registration’. I was told to use a card to pay the amount and the OTP was asked. As soon as I did, Rs 20,238 was taken out of my account,” she explained.
