I had the same call today morning, and it was too tempting to be true. I got a call from 9836974688 (True-caller tell its Kolkata number), and the accent of the Lady Shraddha Sharma as she told me her name, was Bengali (can't say whether it was true Bengali accent or molded one). The first suspicious thing was, that she took my wife's name but called my number. Anyways, I noted down a few things, and then desperately tried searching for Snapdeal's CC number. These e-retailers nowadays, in a bid to cut the costs, have non-human aka IVR based CC number. So all in vain for 10 minutes, so I called back that 98369 number again and questioned them a few things. She told me details as my friend has already mentioned above and kept repeating that its not forceful, rather a choice. Anyways, I didn't fall into the trap, but there should be some process to do a police complaint against such numbers.

This morning I too received a call from 8013201618(kolkata,India) at 10:04am, telling me that I was a lucky customer among 5, to whom they are delivering free gift. The lady,Swati(as she told me her name was) asked me to open snapdeal app and add 3-4 items in wishlist of worth 4000/- and not buy them. I was asked to call her back before 12:00 noon ,once I added the items. To confirm if its not a fraud call I asked her to forward the comapny's promotional offer email/any written proof. She agreed to that. The stunning thing was she had my email id too which she spelled to me! Not sure how she got it!! Well,then I googled about what all she said and landed to this page where everyone said its a fraud! Thanks for helping me save my money guys!! Thank you so much. But it isnt proper to use a brand name and trap people. We need to have a method to complain about such calls!
