It has come to our notice that certain individuals are misrepresenting themselves as the employees or agents of Hindustan Unilever Limited (“HUL”) through means such as websites, WhatsApp messages/SMSes, phone calls, and email ids for appointment as distributors of HUL. These unscrupulous persons demand advance money before such appointment. These people are also without permission using the name, trademark and logo of HUL with a view to tarnish the reputation of HUL and dupe the public.
The general public is advised not to fall prey to such fraudulent activities. HUL has not authorised any person to collect any payment/ security deposit from any individual as a pre-formality for being appointed as a distributor. HUL does not operate any website for offering distributorship and does not have an online process of appointing any distributor or supplier. Certain fake websites, email ids and phone numbers used by these fraudsters are as below:
