Saying that the phone calls were intrusive, Kej wrote, “It's like I have been cursed for placing an order with you. Looks like the only way this will stop is if either I change my phone number, or if @Lenskart_com shuts down.”

“If there is such desperation to retain customers, where you will go to any unethical lengths, then maybe stop at text messages. Why these phone calls?? So intrusive!” he tweeted.

The retail firm responded to the allegations, assuring the musician that the issue will be resolved. “Hi Ricky, repetitive calls are annoying, and we completely understand that. We apologize that the same concern occurred again. Please be apprised that the concern has been highlighted to our respective team to ensure that it is resolved for you,” a representative from the firm wrote.
