Today, many people are cashing in on the fact that behave not like law-abiding citizens, but like scammers. Today many earn good money on cheating. There are many types of fraud, such as in the Internet, it is sale and purchase and theft of personal data information.
We have heard about this fraud and try to somehow bring this value, making any action in the network. But the type of fraud, of which we speak today, we no longer appreciate the scam, as used to this scam. Today we talk about online retail fraud.
We must remember that if the owner sets the price higher than the purchase, it is called a business, but if the seller set the addition cost to the value arbitrarily, it is considered as a scam. And here is an example that every day you can give in to the scam, not thinking about it.
Actual methods of online retail fraud are selling shortweight and miscalculation.
Counting is the most common fraud today. Merchant scammers often use the fact that the buyer blindly believe them or bad at mathematics. Basically, the seller has credibility, counts the item on the calculator and shows you the amount that you have to pay. Since people rarely have to count, then he gives money to the seller.
In such cases, it is best to count the cost of the goods by yourself. Remember, not always a good seller is very honest.
Fortunately, the good news is that instead of a conventional calculator, came terminals, where the code is read, and the computer gives you the exact price. But, unfortunately, we not everywhere yet introduced such a system of calculation, that is why be careful and vigilant when purchasing goods.
The second case in the online retail fraud is selling shortweight.
The main objective of the seller-intruder is to show you visually that she gave you the goods in that amount, which you have ordered. Previously we used conventional scales with weights, and every second seller sells shortweight, earlier people were more attentive to this.
With the advent of electronic scales, we have forgotten that it is necessary to adhere to the rules and check the weight of the goods, hoping to electronic equipment. But nimble sellers found the solution, a frequent way is to lay magnet under the scales. It makes the attraction, and the seller remains in positive.
Buying groceries, note that there are always checkweigher in the room, so you can go and check the accuracy.
Also, to retail fraud you may include cases where the seller glue tags, and if the goods are without them, then he calls the wrong price. To verify the veracity of the words of the seller, you can ask for an invoice, and know that he has it, because without it, he could not remember the value of each item.
Since we live in the modern world, we would like to tell more about the scams which are made by online sellers.
