INTRO: 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 effort to scale back such scams, Reliance Retail has warned customers about fake JioMart websites.
“We are informed about certain unscrupulous individuals who are creating fake websites, pretending to be us or related to us and duping innocent individuals under the pretense of granting franchisee of JioMart services,” said the company.
“We would really like to tell the general public at large that we aren’t 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 don’t charge any amount under the pretense of appointing an individual as a franchisee,” it added.
The company has identified and shared an inventory of JioMart-like websites. To be clear, the official JioMart website is jiomart.com. Take a look at the entire list of fake JioMart websites shared by Reliance below:
In the public caution notice, Reliance encourages its customers to report any such scam websites. If you have found a JioMart-like website other than the ones mentioned above, you may report it by sending an email to [email protected]
As a step to guard its goodwill and reputation, Reliance has also warned that it’ll press civil or criminal charges against malicious actors who are misusing the company’s identity.
