India Today Book Club / Paid for books but not received any

1 India Review updated:

I got a link through IndiaTodayGroup@irctc.co.IN .The offer was to Buy:

Bestsellers Books & CDs starting AT Re 1/-. I selected the ones I liked and then paid online as India Today is a well reputed Magazine and they have a book club. IRCTC is a railway online book site by the Govt. I got a catalog of India Book Club by mail, but never got the books. Not even an acknowledgment receipt. My credit statement shows the amount. They are obviously cheats and would advise all to beware of them.

    I got this popup while browsing some site on internet. Saying order 3books (2bonus books free) and win a membership. I've ordered 3books and also selected 2 books as bonus books. I selected the mode of payment as cash. I received a parcel i paid instantly Rs. 500/- but found that there are only 3 books in it moreover i tried my membership ID on site but was unable to login. Moreover i am not able to recall from where I've ordered the package as it is a pop-up while browsing net. I hope sum1 can do something on this issue.

    I have been wanting to place an order for couple of books since the past 1 month. Hence have been trying to call your office in Delhi but no luck. There is no answer on the number 011-64583745,64583692. Since i couldn't order the books over the phone, I mailed on response@indiatodaybookclub.com. Again i faced the same problem.

    It is only because of India Today's reputation that i enrolled myself in this club. But till date the services provided have been really poor. Also i cannot log on with my membership no. into the site. Suggest anyone.

    Regards,
    Aditi Antoorkar

    Hi All
    Even i have got the worn dilivery. I hvae been trying the telephone no. 64583745,64583692 given at their website and no one is responding. Lets go to consumer court togather and let India Today Group pay for the cheating they are doing with us.

    I have applied for India today book club through IRCTC mail and paid Rs. 631/- through ICICI bank credit card, transaction ref No 75176377211002922488393 on 29.07.07 credited to Living media India Ltd.

    I was given a web number for enquiries; MITBC-WEB-2975226465.

    Till date I have not received any free books /CDs and membership details.

    Their help line phone numbers given on web site Phone: 011-64583692, 011 64583745 are not yet all answering. I am still waiting the dispatch of books CDS.

    As the amount is credited to Living media India Ltd, an India Today company, I feel that they should either refund me the amount or dispatch tbe books. Otherwise consumer court will be approached.

    I've also received an e-mail from irctcpromotions@irctc.co.in. I trusted the site and subscribed for 2 sets of CDs(15 of them: 6 for Encyclopedia Britanica and 9 collection of classical music) for Rs. 1740/- on 20-09-07.

    I've trusted the site as 1st the mail notification I received, was from Indian Railways and 2nd because of India Today's reputation. After reading the compaints I also tried to call the nos 011-64583745,64583692, but in vain.

    I've only received the order confirmation.

    I feel jittery now. I'll update if there is any further development.
