OMCs warn public of fake online offers linked to LPG
Mumbai: Oil marketing companies (OMCs) Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd have warned consumers that that a number of fake websites have been created by some unknown persons and bogus agencies to fraudulently offer LPG distributorships and retail outlet dealerships and demanding money in the process.
In order to dupe innocent applicants, the layout of the fake website has been kept similar to the original websites: www.lpgvitarakchayan.in and www.petrolpumpdealerchayan.in
These fake websites are targeting innocent people and are sending fake emails allegedly from the OMCs — IndianOil, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (using OMC logos on their letterhead for offering LPG distributorships / retail outlets) and are collecting huge sums of money in the name of the OMCs.
The OMCs have advised the public to visit only official websites of OMCs at www.lpgvitarakchayan.in (for LPG distributorships) and www.petrolpumpdealerchayan.in (for retail outlet dealerships) for authentic and official information and prevent themselves from being cheated by the unscrupulous elements.
