Online shopping is definitely nothing new for most of us, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t trust just any seller!

Earlier this week, a netizen took to Lowyat forum to voice out his concerns about popular online marketplaces, Lazada and Mudah, for not properly screening their sellers before they post something. On top of that, he also pointed out that there is no way for users to report scammers on these websites either.

The netizen added that this was suspicious as there seems to be a number of sellers on these websites listing Apple products at insanely low prices. Definitely too good to be true, wei!

He then went on to explain how such scammers work on these online marketplaces, as a warning to other consumers using these websites;

  1. They (sellers) will advertise on Mudah / Lazada with very cheap gadgets, usually at half the market price.
  2. They will insist buyers to bank-in the money as payment method. For those posting in Lazada, they will ask you not to use Lazada, and contact them directly through WhatsApp first.
  3. Once you’ve banked in, they will ask for more money.

To further warn consumers, he then shared a conversation with one of these sellers, to show how these unscrupulous individuals usually communicate with customers. He actually photoshopped the bank receipt in too to see the seller’s response.

Granted, Lazada and Mudah can’t possibly screen through all the vendors they have, but having strict protocol for sellers on their platform will definitely help us buyers from getting cheated of our hard-earned money.

So, be wary the next time you come across anyone reselling these products at prices that just seem too good to be true!
