Veteran actor Shabana Azmi on Thursday said she was cheated by scammers who pretended to be from an alcohol delivery platform.
In a tweet, the 70-year-old actor claimed that she was conned by ‘Living Liquidz’ after she placed an order at the platform but didn’t receive it.
“BEWARE I have been cheated by them. #Living Liquidz I paid upfront and when the ordered item didnt turn up they stopped picking up my calls,” Ms Azmi wrote, sharing details of her transaction with delivery platform.
Later, she said she had managed to locate the people who ran the business only to find out that those who cheated her, had nothing to with Living Liquidz.
Finally traced the owners of @living_liquidz & it turns out that the people who cheated me are fraudsters who have nothing to do with Living Liquidz! I urge @mumbaipolice and @cybercrime to take action to stop these crooks from using names of legitimate businesses & scamming us https://t.co/AUobsRg0on

The actor urged Mumbai Police to take action against those responsible.
In the past, Bollywood celebrities including Akshaye Khanna, Nargis Fakhri and Karan Singh Grover have fallen prey to online scams.
On the work front, Ms Azmi will be seen in Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutta-starrer queer love story “Sheer Qorma”.
