He would then ask the delivery person to meet him at another place or a shop to receive his order, following which he would call Amazon India customer care to make his claims.

Other than Shivam, a small telecom store owner Sachin Jain age 38 was also arrested because the store owner had supplied him almost 141 activated SIM for placing the order from Amazon.

As per police reports, Shivam acquired 141 pre-activated SIM cards for executing this scam, and scammed Amazon of 166 smartphones between April and May this year.

The Delhi Police have also recovered 25 mobile phones, claiming that he allegedly ordered 166 phones from April to May this year, which is yet to be recovered.Shivam allegedly also purchased nearly 150 pre-activated SIM cards to order the phones.

According to the police, Shivam allegedly also purchased 150 pre-activated SIM cards to place the orders from different numbers.

The e-commerce company realised they were being cheated only after they found out that all the purchases were being made from one particular neighbourhood in Tri Nagar and subsequently approached Shalimar Bagh police station in north-west Delhi. Later, he would call up to complain that the box was empty and get a refund.
