Fake crap peddlers

I dislike the Indiatimes shopping site for their deceptive practices of promoting Apple look-alike products from companies such as Wespro etc.

I saw this ad while reading an article on the TOI site. “Holy cow! I am buying 10 of these, just to give away as gifts to friends…”, I thought.

I followed the ad, like Alice followed the rabbit. Didn’t know what was in store (pun intended) for me .

“So far, so good. Whoa! What purchasing power we Indians have. Yes, the world has finally bowed to us.”, I thought. That is when I noticed this fine print –

Hahahaha… some crap that they are claiming is better than the original thing and half its price. Too good to be true, na? It probably is. I bet the above photo is of the real Apple product, but they’ll ship you the fake one. Here is one piece of advice – Run away from the site. Thanks Indiatimes, but no thanks!
