Major IKEA - Amazon fraud going ON

I urge Consumer Affairs Legal Metrology people to look into this gaming that is going on between Ikea, independent sellers and Amazon. See attached

Ikea products with an MRP are being listed at a much higher MRP on Amazon and consumers are being duped. Not sure if its amazons own sellers or independent sellers. Regardless it is amazons responsibility. Ikea will also suffer as their brand reputation will get damaged when a product with 200 MRP gets listed as 800 MRP.

LM dept may please intervene. more

Thanks Nikita, for alerting on the issue. How to fight always with these big Chants. They always play with such scheme. As Samsung M 30S cannot be available to the ordinary Costomer on the said price but are only available to Prime Costomer by paying their Subscription. more  
Thanks for the alert. But the online purchaser should utilize his IQ, while purchasing. more  
i thank you nikita for raising awareness in this circle. for ikea products i am going to order from their site directly. more  
there is a nationwide campaign against the online retailers that they are offering products at a price far discounted than brick and mortar store. so this would be seen as a compliment by them. further i completely agree with the comments of mr. anil sharma. inflated mrp is not an online or an e commerce issue. it's a business practice and strategy. if you go and purchase electrical wires, pls. see the mrp. if u r buying from right place u get upto 45-50% discount on mrp. same with hardware. law shall intervene if mrp listed is lower and you are offered at a higher price. best part is to compare the prices at different sites or stores before placing the final order. more  
Dual MRP is allowed by the government for different sales channels. You can buy from wherever you can get it cheaper and conveniently. more  
Do you have any evidence / document to support your claim of dual pricing, please share with all members of this group? more
