Youngsters sometimes take it too far and eventually land in legal trouble

In a bid to make easy money, the youngsters sometimes take it too far and eventually land in legal trouble. In one such case a 21 year old Shivam Chopra was apprehended by Cyber Crime cell of West Uttar Pradesh as he used to dupe the multi-billion dollar multinational giant Amazon. Actually the modus operandi was very simple.

Shivam used to order mobile phone from Amazon company and later used to file complaint that he has received empty box and get his money refunded. Shivam had placed around 166 such orders in one month alone and accumulated Rs 12 lakh in cash apart from 25 mobile phones and 40 passbooks, all of which has been recovered from him by the police. Shivam Chopra was employed with a hotel management firm but he left his job two months back to make money this way.
