Freedom 251 payment link not received | Scam
It is a fact that there was a huge hype with India’s most awaited and cheapest Smartphone of the world, known as Freedom 251. With the immense number of bookings from the morning of its release, the website for booking this device crashed within a very short period. But that was not the only disappointment people had to face regarding this newly launched device. The much hyped device came up with a lot of technical glitches and issues within the very first day of its release. And this has really disappointed a huge number of prospective buyers. The most recent searched thing by people of india is ” Freedom 251 payment link not received”. We to are also not sure weather Ringing Bell are genuine or a scam.
“Pay now” button not working
The Smartphone, Freedom 251, popularly known as our PM Narendra Modi’s achievement for the Make in India project, was launched recently. It was announced that the pre-booking shall initiate from February 18th 2016 from 6 AM in the morning. But, with the huge number of people trying to book the device from the same website, had to leave in disbelief since the server could not redirect to the payment clearance page. The primary problem that happened was while individuals were clicking on the “buy now” option, the users were redirected to a page where they needed to fill their credentials and particulars for delivery. We were also charged with an additional amount of 40 Rs for delivery. Till that, it was ok, but when you click on the “pay now” button, there should be a bank page where you need to put the necessary details for completing the transfer. But that bank page does not appear at all, and instead, you are redirected to an error message saying “service unavailable”.
Freedom 251 No confirmation email
This was not all. While we make a confirmation for purchase from any other online shopping websites, there is a confirmation email that is sent by the company, ensuring that our order has been placed successfully. But there was no confirmation email for a huge number of users. And this angered the buyers to such an extent that some people have totally scammed the company and even the government for such initiatives. But, to our viewers, you need to consider that there was huge purchase and the number of orders that the company received in a single day, was extreme. But this is not a scam, and the company has registered more than 2.5 million bookings. If you have ordered your device, you can rest assured that you shall receive it on time.
