An alleged online website of ‘Ramraj Cotton’ is holding a contest claiming that ‘Ramraj Cotton’ has offered 20,000 rupees to the winner. The post even claims that it is a Christmas present from ‘Ramraj Cotton’. Factly received a query on its WhatsApp phone line number (+91 9247052470) to verify the authenticity of the website.
Claim: Ramraj Cotton is organizing a competition to give 20,000 rupees as a Christmas present.
Do: This website which is running a contest under the name “Ramraj Cotton” is a fraudulent site. Factly had contacted Ramraj Cotton regarding the website offering Rs 20,000 as a Christmas present on behalf of “Ramraj Cotton”; they confirmed that it was a “fake”. Therefore, the claim made by post is FALSE.
When we inquired whether ‘Ramraj Cotton’ held a contest to offer 20,000 rupees, we could not find any details of such a contest on the official website of ‘Ramraj Cotton’ (here and here). Even the Facebook and Twitter Ramraj Cotton’s accounts do not mention any competition that offers 20,000 rupees. In one of the Facebook posts, Ramraj Cotton mentioned that Christmas can be celebrated with their gift certificates; but you have to pay to get these gift certificates and there is no competition mentioned here. According to the official website of Ramraj Cotton, Ramraj cotton-setup in 1983- is one of India’s largest manufacturers, suppliers and exporters of cotton, silk and linen shirts, as well as Dhotis and homewear for men and children.
When we searched for details of the online website that is running a contest to offer 20,000 rupees, we found the details of this website on ‘Whois.com’ website. This live website with the domain name ‘fepkpg.tw’ has been registered in China. This site has nothing to do with ‘Ramraj Cotton’.
Factly had contacted Ramraj Cotton regarding the website offering Rs 20,000 as a Christmas present on behalf of “Ramraj Cotton”; they confirmed that it was a “fake”.
In short, this so-called “Ramraj Cotton” website which is running a contest to offer 20,000 rupees is a fraudulent site.
