But that did not convince Mondal. He thought that it was the work of the delivery person and thus detained him. After a while, the delivery boy was able to convince him that he and the courier partner to the e-commerce site had nothing to do with the debacle. On the other hand, a few days ago a person identified as Amlan Guha, a resident of Burdwan, was also allegedly duped by another e-commerce website.
