European Consumer Center in Spain celebrates “Safer Internet Day”

The European Consumer Center in Spain (ECC-Spain) celebrates « Safer Internet Day » (SID) in order to develop a safer and better internet. This way, we aim to promote the many positive opportunities online while encouraging safe and responsible behaviour.

Do you Know how to detect a fake online shop?

  • The offer is too good to be true. Be careful if brand-named products are sold at extremely low prices. There are no gifts on the internet.
  • Only payment in advance is accepted ! It makes this kind of internet fraud so successful.
  • The legal notice an the contact information are incomplete. Name, postal address (post-box is nos sufficient) and e-mail are missing. The identity of the trader remains unverifiable.
  • The legal requirements are not met, e.g. information about the right of withdrawal.
  • The information regarding return shipment, terms and conditions & product description is worded badly (use of translation programs ?)
  • There are plenty of negative reviews for the shop in forums or rating portals.
