Videocon d2h alleges fake websites

NEW DELHI: Videocon d2h, the Direct-to-Home Register, has lodged a complaint with the Mumbai Cyber Cell Police Station, Bandra Kurla Complex, requesting them to block certain fake websites which are using the Videocon d2h brand name to cheat the public and malign their brand name.

Said Bharat Business Channel Ltd (BBCL) CEO Anil Khera, “Our official website is “Register and the same is being used in all our customer communications with regard to our DTH services. Some anti social elements have deliberately and with an intention to cause wrongful business loss and with a view to malign our brand image has created fake websites having deceptively similar names.”

The fake websites which have been created are:
  • www.d2hvideocon.com
  • www.d2hadvertising.com
  • www.videocond2hdish.com
Consumers have reported that they have received SMS on their mobile asking them to log on to these websites wherein they are illegally and wrongfully prompted to provide their mobile number. Once the number is given, the next page opens with an icon of ‘Next’ prompting the customer to press the said icon. Thereafter, on the third page, a fake authorization letter opens and informs the customers that they have won a free Videocon d2h product with free package subscription of duration ranging from 2 years to lifetime.
The fake authorization letter further asks the customer to deposit an amount towards customer service Register in an account with a bank for which the details are provided and to fax the deposit slip to a specified number.
“We have, through the Cyber Cell Police Station also requested the State Register of India, Bank of India, Syndicate Bank, Axis Bank and other financial institutions to issue necessary directions so that the operation of the fake accounts can be stopped and money deposited by the public goes back to them. These fake websites are causing damage to us and financial loss to the public at large,” Khera added.

Videocon d2h has taken immediate and necessary steps to prevent the general public from falling into the hands of such fake and illegal websites and endeavours to create awareness on the increasing number of frauds in the industry as well. Most of these websites have already been blocked and action is being taken against the concerned.
