Police caution on fake items
SHILLONG, April 26: It has come to the notice of the District Police that some unscrupulous persons through TV channels and SMS are offering sale of products which come with several free gift items. Once a person’s make a call to any of these numbers flashed, they would persistently call back to take delivery send by post which is cash on delivery. After payment is made, and the parcel delivered is opened, usually some heavy item like stones and bricks are found and not the item offered.
