    Default Beaware of this type of scam

    Hi pakwheelers,

    I just want to share some useful info with u guyz that today i recieved a phone call on my landline number and he asked about my father , and he told me the address of my home same as it is, and he said that he was a marketing supervisor of "Rehman food and industries" and ur father has filled their coupon during their survey in our area about 2 years back and now u have won the suzuki cultus in draw, and he gave me the number of his G.M "Syed raiz gallani" his number ( 03003605473), he is waiting for ur call pls call him in order to claim your price, and he congrulated me warmly. Then i called Mr. Raiz Gallani and he also congrulated me warmly and he said that u have to pick ur car from karachi, or if u are not able to do so, they will ship the car on company's expense . Nd i just have to submit them, 2 copies of NIC nd 2 passport size photographs and the car is free of cost ....

    At once i called my father in order to conforim wheather he particapted in some kind of this draw or not ? He said no not at all.. Then i turned on the internet and searched about Rehman foods and about his GM and i was shocked to see that he is a big fraud and used the same strategy with many other people..

    here is the link of his story : Geo Dost SCAM- Aap ki apni Khabar

    so, guyz beaware of this type of frauds..

    THANKS

    Learn da Rulz... then breaK them....

    Dang! same thing happened to me about 2 weeks back. The difference was tht they quoted Lever Brothers instead of Rehman Foods. And coincidently my father actually filled a coupon, but i was able to confirm it as a scam by calling Unilever directly.

    These B A S T A R D S take phone number from Telephone Directory and they call and tell the same information to the person from the Telephone Directory like NAME and HOME ADDRESS.
    Avoid calling them back.
    They are totally fraud.

    lol... The same exact thing happened to me many years ago. At that time it was a Mehran. I did call them back, but for a reason. They gave me their account number in Habib Bank and asked me to submit the transportation charges. PKR 15000 they asked for transporting a Mehran from Karachi to Islamabad. That's what all I needed. They had to face some agencies then.
    I'd suggest you to file an FIR against them. If they have given you their account number it'd be helpful in catching these frauds!

    You know its a fraud when they ask you for money first before handing you anything. Just then hand them some punjabi, urdu and english "ghazlain" and hang up the phone.

    Exactly same thing happened with us two years back... this same hoax was attempted and they used same company name and numbers back then in 2009 and i am surprised how they get anyone's personal details like they contain real NIC numbers and address etc.

    they had asked for Rs.30000 as car(cultus) delivery charges for punjab and they wanted us to deposit that money in to their UBL account, thanks Goodness we didn't go on to deposit as one of out relative in karachi confirmed from that industrial estate that no company with this name ever existed there.

    God save us all from these scams.
