Latest fraud Carrefour promotion in town..
I bought an item from carrefour landmark branch today.
There was a promotion in carrefour which stated that if i can produce a receipt for the same item at a cheaper price from any other shop, they will refund me 10 times the difference amount.
I had a receipt for the same item at a cheaper price from their competitor and submitted the refund claim form with the original receipts.
Carrefour is now telling me that i should have shown the receipt from the first shop within 48 hours of purchase and is not giving me the refund.
I asked for the terms and conditions of this promotion and there does not seem to be any! What if i had found the cheaper item after i had bought it from Carrefour? The promotion is valid till April 8, 2009.
Does anybody have a contact for the Consumer Protection in the Ministry of Commerce or any other government body that looks into this kind of fraud promotions?
