FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE. 

First of all, we noticed that the URL of the viral site “https://lecturewrist.top/flipkarttest/” was suspicious. The original site of Flipkart is “https://www.flipkart.com/”. We checked the original website but did not find any such offer. 

We even checked the social media handles of Flipkart like Twitter and Instagram but did not find a mention of any such offer. 

We further clicked the viral link, which led us to a survey that asked for personal details like name, age, etc. 

We even contacted “Flipkart Support” on Twitter and received a statement which said, “We’d like to inform you, the website does not belong to Flipkart. Please do not purchase or share your details through any other channels as fraudsters may use this data for scamming.”

Earlier NewsMobile had debunked several similar claims which were being shared in the name of other companies like Amazon and Hermès.
