Did anyone get cheated by one deal posted on 14 Sep 2019, regarding “Free Croma Gift Card on Amazon” , which was posted here on DesiDime?

I got cheated and became a victim of that fraud deal. I recently detected the fraud in my Amazon account.

I searched fir that deal page but could not find it on DesiDime. As far as I remember, the deal was about Amazon giving out free Croma gift cards. There was a link posted on the deal page, which I had clicked and then something happened which I don’t exactly remember. And after that I checked my Amazon account and found nothing related and so I closed that deal page and moved forward to other posts thinking that the deal was a fake and timepass post.

But recently when I was checking my Amazon account, I discovered that there is an Order for Croma Gift Card of Rs. 500 from my account and Money debited from my Amazon Pay account. The gift card of Rs. 500 was sent to some ‘[email protected]’. And it came as a shock to me that someone has stolen money from my Amazon account via Croma Gift Card, through a deal posted here on DesiDime.

I checked with Amazon Fraud Management Team and they confirmed that this was indeed a fraud committed.

So has anyone also got cheated like me from that Free Croma Gift Card Deal on 14 Sep 2019??

@bumblefoot No unfortunately I do not remember the User name or the exact name of the Deal topic. But ‘Free Croma Gift Card’ was mentioned as part of the topic. And regarding the links, I am sorry, I do not recollect the type of links it contained.

The Amazon Fraud Management guys deleted the Order from my history, saying they need to sanitize my account and investigate.

Could not find anything related to that topic on browser history. FYI, I mostly use the DesiDime and Amazon Apps.

Was it really on DD?😱😱May be you got some phishing sms or email. And another croma deal on DD and getting confused like deja vu or something. Go to that browser history check the link. Try to remember the date time.
And don’t be worried Amazon team will refund your money

Yeah I am 100% sure it was a deal posted on DD. I remember about clicking the link on that post to see what follows. But don’t exactly remember all the nitty gritty of that post.

I use the DD and Amazon apps mostly.

And its not about the money. Its about the SECURITY aspect that I am more concerned and interested in. I do not want crooks to cheat people and fellow dimers by exploiting any software/security loopholes.

We looked up at all deleted deals of 14th September and found nothing which said about FREE Croma Gift card….
If there was indeed such a link, then it can affect many users… and there would be also some traces which we would have.
If you find more details, kindly share with us too and we can also block those type of content

I am not absolutely sure about this, though it should have been in all probability a Deal, because I regularly check the Deals page by default. But I am not 100% sure.

I have read similar posts where someone took access of a user’s amazon account and then used up their Amazon GC balance by ordering croma GCs. Could it be possible that this episode is totally unrelated to DD link?
@bumblefoot
@admin
I have noticed that whenever a user clicks on a link, the user number (22238) is appended to the redirecting URL. Is it possible to check all the links that this user was redirected to, on 14th sept, from DD?
