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.
Have contact details been provided – e-mail, phone number and address?
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.
And last, but not least. Is the price too good to be true? If so, it’s probably a counterfeited product.
