Reliance unveiled JioMart this May and launched mobile apps on Android and iOS in July. Given the rising popularity, fraudsters have been attempting to replicate and scam JioMart customers with fake websites. In an attempt to reduce such scams, Reliance Retail has warned customers about fake JioMart websites.
“We have been informed about certain unscrupulous individuals who are creating fake websites, pretending to be us or associated with us and duping innocent individuals under the pretence of granting franchisee of JioMart services,” said the company.
“We would like to inform the public at large that we are not operating any dealership or franchisee model currently nor have we appointed any franchisee or any agent for appointing any dealer or franchisee in any manner whatsoever. Further, we do not charge any amount under the pretense of appointing a person as a franchisee,” it added.
