Please do file a cyber crime complaint with local police station. If an item is not received after payment and also no response to your mails and phone calls.

Guys ordered items on 18 Feb 14. No communication, no reply on phone. Read this thread too late.

Anyone who can help out on the issue as to how to proceed ahead with the problem?

Email. They do reply to emails. Maybe a bit late in replying though!

Well guys, as suggested got replies from Vicky.in on mail and once even got a call. One of the product delivered and another one on its way with consignment number provided.

The site has good inventory but sadly poor follow up, customer service and even poor packing. What a shame! Only if management could have been better, it would have been a been a wonderful online auto accessories shop.

I have made a website for the same purpose

Dear Slasher,
I wish to appreciate your efforts in putting together this blog. The detailing that has gone into putting it together is very helpful for potential shoppers on Vicky.in. I got delivery of my new HYUNDAI Elite i20 last week, and was almost about to order a TYVEK car cover from them. However, after reading your blog/report, I have decided otherwise.

The 'sad part' of technology opening up in a big way and entering our lives, is the complete incompetency and lack of commitment on part of the people who initiate such online portals without having the backup teams to service a gullible customer who reposes his/her faith in them, purely because of the emotional connect they have with their set of wheels.

This feedback shall serve as a very good reminder for people before they go online to Vicky.in.

Thanks for opening our eyes.

Best wishes.

I really wish I had seen this thread before the momentous 25th of September when I placed an order for not one but two Stebel Nautilus Compact Horns with the (now)notorious Vicky.in
They shipped my order after 5 days - so far so good - I received it in reasonable condition too. Apparently sealed boxes. I say 'apparently' because one of them had the relay in the box and the other didn't!
Upon inspecting them, I realized this is was the wrong model. The model they sent was meant for cars and not the compact one that can be used on bikes. The unit is so large and heavy that there is no place on the bike I can install this.
In an attempt to exchange these, I tried calling the number mentioned in the thread earlier umpteen times over many days. No body answers. SMSs went unanswered.
I sent emails to them which went unanswered. Truly a ghost company!

I have been using the internet to make online purchases for many years now and take pride in being an early adopter. This incident has left a sour taste and shaken my confidence!

Default Vicky.in is a sham operation. Beware!

Wish I had also seen this thread previously.
Gist of it it that I got conned by Vicky.in too.

Placed an order for various car care products totaling over Rs.2K.
Multiple reminders to the seller via email (no phone listed on the website and one number 7502565872 listed in the footer of one of their emails goes unanswered). Keep making excuses that item will ship but don't. Then tell me that for one item the product has been changed by the manufacturer so will sent the new one. I agree assuming they are telling the truth. More reminders from my side. Finally after 22 days a courier shows up. Open the package and find 2 items one of which is broken and fully empty. The other is not even what I ordered and a third item that I had ordered is not even in the package.

Someone needs to shut these guys down!

Did some searching on the web and Vicky.in profile is associated with one Karthick Annamalai and Vignesh Annamalai.

Here are links the links-
http://facebook.com/vickyshoppingindia
https://plus.google.com/+vickyin
http://annap.org/team.html
http://www.vigneshannamalai.com/

Found a LinkedIn profile for Vignesh Annamalai as well but wasn't a 100% that its the same guy who runs Vicky.in sure so don't want to post the link here.

Thanks a lot to all the members who have posted their worst experiences with vicky.in here. I was about to order a pair of H4 bulbs from them but after listening to the saga(s) endured by fellow bhpians decided against it. Thanks to all who shared their experiences here.
