Tata Motors warns folks of fraudulent promotions
Tata Motors is notifying general public on fraudulent promotional offers and ads that have attempted to extract/ demand cash deposit(s) to specified bank(s). To perfect their con, wrongdoers have been illegally using Tata Motor’s registered trademark so people find it difficult to identify the fraud.
The Indian automaker has already lodged a police complaint in regard to such misleading communication intended to solicit payment or otherwise in the cloak of a fake promotional scheme. Fraudsters have made themselves visible through emails/sms/newspaper/television advertisements. Fake prizes include a Tata Motors’ vehicle against caution money deposits.
The con sees fraudsters ask prospective buyers / customers to make payments towards availing a prize or a lucky draw. In one rather outrageous advertisement, viewers had to identify certain filmstars and upon responding, were encouraged to deposit amounts towards vehicle registration, after which they were directed to an unsuspecting Tata Motors facility to collect the vehicle. Tata Motors is urging the public to file a police complaint if such a deal has been proposed to them.
