When shopping, shop around. For things that are particularly low-priced, really have to think about it. Otherwise, you may be the one who suffers.
Recently, Mr. Pan from Liaoning found a website called “Totoro.com” when he searched the website for purchasing projectors through the web. The projectors sold inside are very cheap, the expensive ones are only 800 yuan, and the ordinary ones are about 300 yuan. According to the webpage description, these projectors are brand new, not only can be connected to computers, mobile phones, but also can directly watch videos through WiFi. As for why the price is so cheap, the website claims that it is a purchasing factory for big-name projectors. Because there is no OEM, it can be sold at a low price.
Mr. Pan was very moved by this. “Now there are thousands of projectors at every turn, and I don’t pay attention to the brand. It is more cost-effective to buy this kind of processing products.” So Mr. Pan immediately transferred 300 yuan through online banking.
A few days later, the projector was delivered to Mr. Pan’s home. After unpacking, he was disappointed: “The image quality of the projector is so poor that it can’t be seen at all.” Moreover, after Mr. Pan inspected the fuselage, he found that it was simply “three no products”. So, Mr. Pan wanted to contact the seller to return the goods, but there was no return address on the website, and no one answered the customer service phone after several times. To this end, Mr. Pan dialed 12315 to file a complaint.
Since the mailing address on the express note was No. 1, No. 4 Street, Hangzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone, the complaint was transferred to the Baiyang Market Supervision Office.
“During this period, we received a lot of complaints of this kind, basically from other places. They all bought projectors or sweeping robots at low prices on a website called’Totoro.’ The amount was not large.” Then, the market The staff of the supervision office conducts on-site verification.
“There is Xiasha Trade City, there is no office location for the website at all. Moreover, we searched the Internet and only found a website selling pet supplies, and no company selling electronic products.” The staff said. Later, they found a company called Totoro Technology. The company’s registered place is in Gongshu District, Hangzhou. The staff of the Market Supervision Office looked for it, and the other party was also very bitter: “We have never sold this kind of product online, but from time to time someone calls in and asks to return the product.”
Here, the staff of the Baiyang Market Supervision Office reminded consumers: lawbreakers are taking advantage of consumers’ greed and troublesome psychology after the accident. Therefore, when shopping online, you should pay attention to the price changes of the products, compare them through multiple channels, and understand the price of the products. Don’t be misled by the obvious low prices or be confused by the false discounts. In addition, when shopping online, you must choose a trading platform carefully, try to choose a seller with a high degree of credibility to buy, and pay through a formal third-party payment channel.
