Hi,

I had ordered phone from MI.com but bluedart refused to deliver when I refused to show him ID proof. Can you help answer:

1. How long does MI take to process refund?
2. I paid via hdfc debit card so I"m assuming it’ll come back to my bank account and not some MI account, is that correct?

If he just wanted to check name and photo, I would’ve shown but he wanted to write down the ID Number. That’s why I refused. This is their modus-operandi to collect personal data of unsuspecting customers. They should start OTP delivery just like amazon. Will never order again from MI. Anyway.
Do you know how much time it takes to get refund?

Haha. Good suggestion but you must also understand it’s a technique they employ to collect personal IDs. These days every tom, dick and harry wants aadhaar card.
Any experience with refund via mi?

If they just want to “see” for verification, it’s understandable but when they want to write down the ID number in their system, that’s a red flag. Amazon has never asked id even a single time in last six years i have been shopping from them. Bluedart is notorious. They even asked me to come to their office to collect delivery once about 2-3 years back.

I have purchased many things from mi.com .
Courier guy only ask id for verification . Nothing else.
Also few times I went to FedEx office to collect parcel ,then they also write down the id no.

Because personal data sells.

I get mails sometimes from unknown vendors selling personal data of engineers, doctors, bpo employees, IT employees, loan takers, online shoppers and what not. Every kind of data you can imagine is up for sale with email, phone, address, id, city wise, state wise….
This is insane

He wanted to write down my ID number that’s what I didn’t feel comfortable about.
Any experience about their refund process/time?

After Cancellation?
You mean after they received your product back?

I see, I guess your order wasn’t even shipped.
Do you have any email IDs of higher officials (or escalation) in case my refund gets delayed?

Which id did he ask? I guess sharing a simple driving licensee would not be an issue, or is it?

Any ID. It’s a matter of personal choice. If others can deliver without IDs, they can too. It’s just they make your delivery a tool to extract personal ID because usually when your delivery is at stake people can go to any lengths to providing any id scans, aadhaar, money, going to courier office and what not. People are so desperate… in general

Because I don’t like to give my personal info (let alone an ID) where it is not needed. There are folks who don’t mind providing aadhaar, pan and other documents just to get  cashbacks of 10, 20, 30 and so on to all sorts of wallet companies…
Moreover, it also depends on mood of the delivery guy. Once I ordered a tv from flipkart and the delivery guy came home in my absence. He refused to deliver to my mom without her id. Then I asked my mom to not give any id and told the guy to take delivery back. He then didn’t bother and delivered. Such is the scenario…..

Why did you go to collect? Delivery company is being paid to deliver at your home. What impression do you think you give them when you go to collect personally?

Haha, I guessed.
Bluedart is notorious for asking people to collect from their office. They asked me on several occasions but I never went to collect. Sometimes they delivered, sometimes I got money back…
