How not to lose all of your money at once

Make a separate bank card to pay for your online purchases and transfer the necessary sum of money to it directly before buying. This way you will be able to keep the rest of your assets safe from Internet fraudsters.

Don’t fall for pretty pictures in women’s accounts since they can be used to reduce the price of the item.

Checking the purchased devices

You should definitely take the device out of its the cover, take the protective film off the screen, open the lid and remove the battery, turn on and reboot the device – this way you will immediately notice the dents on the body, cracks and scratches on the glass, broken slot plugs and other possible defects.

Then you need to give the gadget a test-drive evaluating all the available functions on the maximum CPU load.

Checking the authenticity of the device

The most accurate way to distinguish an authentic mobile device from a fake is a unique numerical identifier of the device, IMEI.

Simply dial *#06# on your phone. The digits on the display should coincide with the ones on the box. You can also find the IMEI on the manufacturer’s website.

Arranging the transaction with the sellers

It often happens that the seller requests an advance payment to their bank card. The buyer transfers the money and is waiting for feedback from the seller. The seller immediately disappears and doesn’t reply to the client’s messages.

How to prevent this: Do not send any advance payments (no matter how small they may be) to an unknown seller.

Another situation: the buyer arranges to pay for the product upon receiving it at the post office. However, when the buyer picks up the parcel, brings it home and unpacks it, he sees a plywood board instead of a new laptop inside. And, of course, the buyer cannot contact the seller any more.

How to prevent this: make sure to unpack and check the contents of the parcel before you pay for it. You have every right to refuse from the parcel if it doesn’t contain what you’ve been promised.

Search filters

With the help of special filters (many users still don’t notice them for some reason!) you can view the ads not only according to the types, prices, brands, but also cities, regions, and even the color and the shape! Save your time and effort!

Signs of fraud in the ads:

  • No phone number and address of the seller, you can contact the seller only via e-mail or instant messaging.
  • The seller’s name is obviously fictitious or absent at all.
  • The ad is written clumsily, there are numerous grammatical errors (not misprints), transliteration, there are no pictures of the goods or they are not real.
  • The price of goods is too low in comparison with similar offers from other sellers. Another situation can occur with smartphones, clothing, footwear, cosmetics, in which the goods will be sent to you, but they would be cheap Chinese replicas of the chosen branded models.
