The other day, I wanted to buy myself some mascara and I thought of trying for it online. Now, I am a big fan of online shopping but this was the first time that I was attempting to buy makeup online. And then suddenly I realized that the packaging of the online avatar was discreetly different.
I wouldn’t have noticed it if I had recently not mulled over the subject of online frauds and read extensively on it. In fact, a close encounter with a fake website had meant that I was nearly going to belt out a few hundred dollars for a cheap product that was not even worth a few dollars.
Here is a list on the precautions that you must take so that you do not end up buying fake beauty products from online stores:
- Always verify the seller:
Make sure that you have the dealer’s geographical address and phone number or email address in case you have an issue with the product. A URL that says that it is from a particular geographical location is no longer a trustworthy issue.
- Read reviews online:
Make sure to check out reviews on non-affiliated pages only. This will ensure that they are written by actual customers who have used the product and genuinely reviewed them.
- How good would you rate the website based on its layout:
Sometimes, the sophistication can give you the vibes. A shabby website will tell you that it need not be trusted with your eyes closed.
- Order smaller quantities if you have to:
If it is the first time on the website then we recommend that you go for a smaller order. Once you are convinced about the quality and the service of the website you can go ahead with the complete order. This way even if you are not satisfied with the product, you would have lost a small percentage of your money only.
