Nowadays we opt to avail for products and services in the most convenient ways possible. I mean why bother going out looking for bags, wallets and other stuff (especially if the brand is not available in the country), if you could just browse Instagram shops in the comfort of your own home. With just a tap of a finger, you can select that product you like, pay via on-line bank transfer, credit card or through your nearest remittance center and then just wait until your package come to your doorstep.
I myself is an online shopper for years now. Though most of my transactions were fast and legit, I also experienced being wronged twice. So based from my own experiences, here are my tips that I hope would prevent you for purchasing fake items.
1. Do not Trust Easily.
Well established online shops is not a guarantee that you will not be able to avail fake items.
I purchased a fake power bank from a well known online shop before. Given that it has credibility and clearly stands for the authenticity of its products, I gave my full trust. Luckily, they are kind enough to immediately entertain my concern and return my money back. They put the blame on the vendor where the item came from. Though I think that it wasn’t a valid excuse, I’m still glad that they were very attentive and sorry for the inconvenience they have caused me.
