Another individual Debojyoti Das who had been duped tweeted “Gati Packers & Movers used the Gati name and mentioned they are a part of @GATIKWEIndia. Picked-up my items, send me huge bill of number and still not returning my items. http://gatihomepackers.in.

HarinankaMallik, another victim shared on his twitter account (@hariinnohurry), “Looks like I got duped... Was looking to transport my bike to Hyderabad... A person claiming to be from @GATIKWEIndia called, gave a quotation, to which I agreed, scheduled the pick-up and paid an advance.”

Sharing her ordeal of dealing with a fraudulent website, Sughandha Gangwar tweeted, “Recently, I contacted the Cargo Movers pretending to be Gati to move my bike from Gurgaon to Mumbai. However, the company representative demanded additional payments for the delivery during transit and said that the consignment would not be delivered to the destination and would be brought back to Delhi office unless the additional payment is made.”
