  • Someone used my credit card details to buy an item on Daraz and put it on EMI plans. I wonder how Daraz and my bank approved. I didn’t got any kind of alert sms, email or OTP and few days ago when I login to my bank account. I saw this strange transaction in my credit card statement and now my head is spinning WTH happened?? Now even I have escalated this issue with my bank and they are investigating but still when I contacted Daraz, their chat service is pathetic and they don’t even help me to check who purchased what product from their website while using my card details. I am sure their billing department will know it but they are not willing to help and asking me to go ask your bank 🙁
