TransDeal Discount Card fraud – Avoid at all costs
Do you get sales calls from company called TransDeal or Trans Discount card. This is the same company or another fraudulent spin off of infamous w-discount card. Based on my personal analysis and my past experience with such companies in the past, I advice you not to make any deal with Transdeals or TransDeal. (Whatever the name of the company is – they don’t know themselves)
First I received a call from 0120 414 4841 and Transdeal offered the following
I had been selected based on my Credit Card goodwill. (but they did not know which card – lol)
They told me I would get 20% discount on all my shopping and I could make huge savings.
I would get Lottos shoe worth 5000, a watch worth 3,500, a formal shirt worth 1,850
I would get a holiday package for my family with 4 star or 5 star rating hotels.
More coupons and Vouchers
Take a look at their offering in their own wordings. It is complete garbage and it does not give an iota of information. It is just pure bullshit meant to mislead naive people.
“As your wishes grow so would our endeavor to add new brands and services not only from India but from across the globe.

With the growing number of destinations and offers we have also instituted the concept of a 100%+ guarantee for every one of the offers listed in the book. “
When the tele-caller understood I was a tricky customer she called back from another mobile number -9211824689. She also transferred me to her senior manager when I told her about fraud mentions on popular consumer complaint sites. This senior manager tried to convince me with multiple explanations. I asked him what would be the cost of the holiday in 4-5 star hotel that your are offering. He said “no it is 3-4 star hotel” and that the sales executives don’t really know the finer details. He said the cost of the vacation that we are giving you is 13,000 – 15,000. So I asked him how do you give me 15,000 holiday package and 10,000 worth of products as compliments on an payment of 7,999 rupees? He had know answer and he tried to give bull shit explanations.
Then he started talking about transcard discounts. I could buy from BigBazaar and save 20%? I said I will verify that from BigBazar and let you know. Then he said its upto 20% off and its complicated. Sometimes they already have discounts like “Wednesday bazzar” discounts and in that case the transcard / trans deal discount will be 5% or similar.
I clearly understood this is a scam, and I told him – dude I don’t trust any word of yours. Please don’t waste my time and yours. He tried to convince me and finally I had to be rude and told him to shut up and shove the transdeal card up his ***.
I have started a new project called the Indic Dictionary. This will cover popular household words in India and what they are called in various languages. Eventually, I will make this an easy to use app where where people can easily find something like “hing in English” or “Tea Tree Oil in Hindi” or “carrom seeds in Urdu”.
