Sonakshi Sinha is the latest victim of online fraud! It looks like digital miscreants spare no one when it comes to pillaging a few bucks. From getting a piece of brick instead of a mobile phone to a detergent bar, online fraud is upping their scamming heights. After a man from Maharashtra tweeted that he was delivered a brick instead of a mobile phone, it is the Dabangg actor’s turn now. And Twitterati is bawling with disgust, anger and memes of course.
Sonakshi had ordered headphones from the giant e-commerce company but was shocked to find that her expected headphones were a piece of iron instead. The actor played it cool with the experience but didn’t let the blunder go unnoticed by taking it to social media. She tweeted, “Hey @amazonIN! Look what I got instead of the @bose headphones I ordered! Properly packed and unopened box, looked legit… but only on the outside. Oh and your customer service doesn't even want to help, that's what makes it even worse,” Sonakshi tweeted along with the picture.
