Consumer Alert -‘Curious by Pramitesh’

September 4, 2022

As consumers begin to gear-up for this year’s Diwali celebrations, the Consumer Council of Fiji is urging consumers to be vigilant and exercise their due discretion when engaging with the prominent online trader ‘Curious by Pramitesh’; known for retailing Indian wear and Custom-made traditional outfits. The trader also has a physical store located at 269 Waimanu Road, Suva.

The Council has received 14 complaints worth $ 5,276.00 from January 2022 to-date against Curious by Pramitesh solely for failing to deliver pre-ordered products after taking upfront payments.

Continuous efforts by consumers and the Council to obtain redress has provided futile in most cases – with the trader making continuous false promises.

Online businesses are reminded that it is illegal to extort money from consumers under the pretence of supplying goods and services. The Council will work closely with other enforcement bodies to ensure such unethical traders are taken to task.

Consumers facing similar issues with Curious by Pramitesh are encouraged to contact the Council on the toll-free National Consumer Helpline, 155 or email
