.Shopping for a house? Don’t believe Magicbricks till the Mercedes arrives at your doorstep!
Magicbricks which provides its services to consumers wanting to buy houses, flats, villas etc. all over India, and elsewhere was going over board by luring consumers with unreliable exclusive deals and offers.
The Advertising Standards Council of India had to step in to remove their advertisement which told buyers to get a Mercedes on every booking and other such false promises! Magicbricks does not show any proof of the offers it is making nor any details showing genuine customers who had got these offers!
In its website the ASCI has said: Magicbricks Realty Services Ltd: The advertisemen t’s claims, “Get a Mercedes on every booking, “Get Flat Rs.35 lac discount and many more such deals” and “500+ exclusive deals”, were not substantiated with evidence of the offer being officially offered and / or details regarding genuine customers who hav e availed of this offer. These claims are misleading by gross exaggeration.
