Electrical products with false labels and design faults. That doesn’t really sound like a bargain. That sounds more like a fire hazard and a threat to life. So always be cautious when a hot deal beckons.

How do you know if it’s fake?

It can be difficult to distinguish a copy from an original, they often look exactly the same. Here are some thinks to keep in mind when buying new products.

The vendor:

Have contact details been provided – e-mail, phone number and address?

The website:

Websites selling counterfeited products often include spelling errors and have poor-quality images and logos. Also, look for a “Safe e-commerce” or “Certified e-commerce” stamp.

Read the terms and conditions and save the receipt:

What terms of purchase are you accepting? Is information provided about the right to return purchases, and about complaints and guarantees? Always save the receipt.

Do not pay in advance:

Preferably pay with a credit card, which provides protection under the Consumer Credit Act, meaning you may be able to get your money back if something goes wrong.

The price:

And last, but not least. Is the price too good to be true? If so, it’s probably a counterfeited product.
