In this lock-down, the online fraudster is taking advantage of the liquor ban, by ensuring Doorstep delivery.
Weeks ago Kerala Government has planned to sell liquor online but later the government stepped back after High Court denied.
The fraudster developed a web site for online liquor delivery named (BEVCO) and circulated fake news that the government has started to provide a doorstep delivering using this domain (BEVCO).
This website (BEVCO) carriers a corporation name and Logo, which made people trust the website and place the order, just you need to select your favorite brand, update your delivery address and payment mode, like online or COD. once the order is placed. Customers will receive a confirmation message, but not the delivery.
The online fraudster doesn’t give the COD option. especially the COD, cash on delivery option gave more reliance to the customer for placing an order.
Even they were running a Facebook page with the name BEVCO’s foreign liquor shop with the same corporation Logo, and the website was offering a 24*7 online chat and customer support. Kadavanthra police have registered a case and investigating.
Government has not allowed selling liquor online or offline till the lockdown, so please don’t trust any website or the online channel that promises delivery.
