Leipzig Positive reports including pictures of alleged buyers are supposed to serve as evidence of successful bargains. But all this is just a windy scam, warns the consumer center in Saxony.
A pallet full of electronics for 30 euros?
In the network, the said pallets are advertised at prices starting from 30 euros. If you transfer the money, you usually never hear from the sellers again. Consumer advocates are even aware of a case when the buyer paid several hundred euros and did not receive any goods. The fraudsters could not even be reached via the previously used e-mail address after that.
The consumer center points out that returned goods from the Internet trade are actually sold on pallets, but not to private individuals via social networks, but in large quantities to companies.
Accordingly, one should become skeptical if one encounters “disproportionately cheap offers” and generally exercise caution with offers in the social networks.
