According to a CID investigation, Dhamaka Shopping has allegedly transferred more than Tk50 crore — received from customers as advance payments — to bank accounts of its officials and laundered the money out of the country

Dhamakashopping.com (Invariant Telecom Bangladesh Ltd) Seller Association claimed that the e-commerce platform owes more than Tk200 crore to its sellers and suppliers. 

The association will organise a press conference to address the issue next Saturday at Dhaka Reporters Unity in the capital’s Segunbagicha area. 

In a letter sent to Dhaka Tribune on Thursday, the association wrote: “More than 650 sellers supplied products to Dhamaka. But the e-commerce platform is not paying due to the sellers and suppliers. They have been operating on a limited scale since June this year.” 

“The Crime Investigation Department (CID) already filed a money laundering case against the managing director of the e-commerce platform and family members,” the letter further reads.

The seller association further mentioned that they made several attempts of contacting Dhamakashopping authority and government bodies to get back their money, but all of their attempts went in vain. 

According to a CID investigation, Dhamaka Shopping has allegedly transferred more than Tk50 crore — received from customers as advance payments — to bank accounts of its officials and laundered the money out of the country. 

Additionally, Tk588 crore worth of transactions remains unexplained by the platform. 

Brac Bank suspended its transactions with Dhamakashopping on June 22 and bKash did the same back on July 17.

Moreover, a CID official, seeking anonymity, told Dhaka Tribune in July that the platform is not registered and does not have a valid licence.
