Selling “online”… Scam pages increase the number of fraud victims

Stagnation in the markets,

The movement almost stopped in Mar Elias market here,
This is the case in many places.
The collapse hit the purchasing power,
In the virtual world, the movement is active.
Round-the-clock offers via WhatsApp, Facebook and other applications,
But many of the owners of pages and platforms are scammers,
Yes, they resorted to scams on the virtual world to make the task of holding them accountable very difficult,
Here is the story of one of the victims.

Online selling is a phenomenon that has spread in conjunction with the spread of the Corona epidemic.
The phenomenon continued due to the seller’s ability to disappear,
The consumer sought to save time by avoiding personally going to the markets,
The law does not protect the dupes,
So say the legal texts,
Lawyers urge consumers to be vigilant to avoid recording more profits for swindlers.
And thus harvest more victims of fraud.

The major responsibility in the process of buying and selling through electronic platforms lies with the consumer, because the fraudulent crime, even if it is a reality, will not fall into the trap of the security forces until after an effort that costs more than the cost of the fraudulent goods.
