How I Recovered Money From Qnet?
I had also invested 4 lakh INR in this business after getting a recommendation from my childhood friend.
But after investment, I came to know it is a multi-level marketing business famously known as MLM or pyramid scheme and is definitely not my cup of tea.
As I am an introvert who is not at all social since it is quite hard for me to convince anyone for the product which so high value and which I personally didn’t use or even seen.
So, I told my friend I want to quit from this membership but he told me what happened bro?
what happened bro? Everything alright.
Trust me it is a genuine business and you are not doing anything wrong look at me.
If it was not a genuine one I might not have included my fiance and parents and brother in law into it. I have recovered my money and is earning handsomely from it.
All negative thoughts start rotating in my head. I start getting depressed.
I was frightened that my money is going to be wasted.
I didn’t sleep that night I searched on the internet everything about Qnet starting from negative remarks, Qnet refund procedure, Qnet refund policy, Qnet victims, etc.
Cursing the moment that I trusted my friend, what he had said, and how things are. I felt very sorry for myself.
Suddenly, one thing came to my mind, my friend had told me two days back that I will get a confirmation call .
You need to give the information exactly as per proof you have submitted and requested to mention particular email id which I hadn’t made nor I knew about it.
When asked him why he created a different email id and not even took an effort to ask my personal email.
He answered he needed my email address immediately since there was less time to create the license else if late I might have lost the opportunity. I calmed down.
While I was checking my WhatsApp I found there were two new groups related to QNET in which I was a member now.
One where every local Qnet person was joined and meet, my friend who introduced me and two more members who claim to be his senior as well as a mentor.
I was getting regular calls from my friend to come to a particular location for learning about Qnet and how it works.
I am told him I can’t come on a regular basis since my exams are coming and I need time to study.
I got a confirmation call, I did as per my friend’s instruction. I was quite suspicious of the email.so I dropped a message in WhatsApp group (the second one)
what is my email id password?
answer received you don’t need it anyways we will arrange everything for you since you are a beginner and our equal business partner.
I again asked for a password in a different way.
if it is my email id I need to know the password else I might have to get it changed in their record.
I got excuses. I being stubborn asked two more times. This time more angrily in quite a loud tone.
I got to call or SMS don’t remember exactly.
Mentioning a password. I checked the email immediately.
to my utter surprise, there was the receipt of payment.
initially, I thought that might be fees for portal access login but after scanning I learned something is purchased, it was one watch and a holiday package.
I received the watch in the next few days.on checking didn’t found it to be extraordinary since I was already a fan of Chrono watch and very well used well known branded watches I became more suspicious.
My grandpa’s health suddenly deteriorates that he needs to be rushed to a hospital.
Later on, we come to know his kidneys are not working fine and need dialysis and the rest of the tests were going on and the doctor told there might be a chance of cancer also because of similar symptoms too.
I called my friend and told I need my money back immediately because of urgency at home. Again he starts making excuses what is the situation, I need to discuss with my senior, there are certain rules and procedures we need to follow.
I said loudly I need it immediately, Got it.
He asked me to come to market parking I need to meet you. I again said in a much louder tone this time.
There is an emergency in-home I need money immediately either give it else I might have to take legal action.
On this night I was searching for the Qnet refund process there I found one guy who claims it is not easy to get money back from the Qnet
But there is a way which he knows and asked for the rest of the details like when I gave my friend money for the business?
what was the mode of payment?
how much payment did I make?
what proofs I have given?
how I know the person who introduced me etc.
at the end of the conversation, he offered help if some fee is offered to him.
I got conscious, I asked him about his mobile number which he refused and said he will disclose only after payment so that he is not disturbed in his personal life and it takes energy, time, and resources to get the money back from Qnet for which he is asking the fees.
I got suspicious if he is willing to help then why he is not sharing mobile or landline numbers.
What if he also tricked me?
What if he asked for a share of the refunded amount?
I ignored him without any second thought.
I got a call from a friend, that he along with his senior want to meet me.
I have been trying to smart had put my phone on call barred so that every conversation is done in written form.
so that if required I have lots of proof. Moreover, I installed an app on my mobile so that every call gets recorded automatically to collect the evidence. I may have to go for legal action.
I sent the watch back to their Bangalore. Vihaan Direct selling India Pvt Ltd. center and emailed them regarding the refund and courier details it was perhaps the fifth day.
in conversation, his senior tried every possible way to convince me and my friend was also trying to help him to make me believe business is genuine and I haven’t been tricked.
I said ok then return the money.
He said “you can’t quit now” since there is no such way now, one way there but for that time limit is already exceeded.
I furiously said no more conversation sit back and be ready for some real game some legal action.his senior was nervous, my friend also looked tensed.
But both were very well trained to hide their emotions and being a very good observer was keeping a vigil on every single thing they said their gestures and body language right from the very first day.
I left the place. his senior left.i was in parking was about to call another friend who is quite good at legal stuff.
I knew very well if I make a police complaint and proved him wrong he gonna lose his job, his reputation and all his circle will vanish.
Update: I have received a refund that was not 100 % but approx. 95% due to tax not refunded.
