I frequently visit Hyperstar for shopping. About a month ago there were some people ( few boys and girls ) wearing costumes which had a society's name printed on it ( don't remember the name). They asked me to fill the form and I can get selected for plot with 50% discount. I just filled my name and number.
Again after few days I went and same happened but society's name was different. Al-Jannat society. Both the societies were of Rawalpindi. Again I filled just my name and number.
About 3 days ago I received a call, the person told me that I have been "selected" from 30,000 entries via draw for 50% off on the price. And as I'm employed in a Govt. department, I'm also eligible for more 5% discount. Their office is in plaza opposite to Pace (as told by him). I was asked to be there on the very same date (not possible to take the next day) and receive the file. I was asked to bring 2 photographs and 2 copies of CNIC. And then he told me kindly submit Rs. 5000/- as file handing over charges. I didn't go, a most of the chances are that it's a scam. The next day I received another call from the same person saying "sir ap aye nahi? ap ke liye aur sirf apke liye khasosi offer hai ao ap aa jayen", all I said was OK and hung up.
And the same call was received and same procedure was told with amount of Rs. 6000/- to be submitted today. I told him I'm out of city so neither I can come nor I can submit the amount (just to know what their reaction is). They offered my easypaisa offer. I said I can't submit the amount today, he said sir aaj hi lazmi hain warna file apko nahi milay gi. I said ok na milay and hung up.
What do you guys suggest? Don't stores like Hyperstar confirm before allowing anyone to do the marketing in their premises?
