We can empathize with the frustration that comes with receiving counterfeit or fake goods, especially when shopping online. Unfortunately, online shopping scams have become increasingly common, with many customers falling victim to fraudulent practices. In a recent incident that has gained attention online, a customer’s complaint about receiving fake goods from Daraz, a leading e-commerce platform, has gone viral.
Daraz was founded with the twin goals of enabling small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to expand their businesses online and providing customers with an immersive and personalized shopping experience. Today, Daraz is the top e-commerce marketplace in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Nepal.
Most of these scams are carried out by unscrupulous sellers, with the customer being the victim. In reality, there’s a whole industry of people who earn their livelihoods this way.
There may be various reasons why you receive the wrong item, whether intentionally or unintentionally. It’s important to research the seller and read reviews of the product before making a purchase.
