Be aware of buying electronics from online market place
« on: August 11, 2015, 10:16:43 AM »
a few weeks ago a news was published about the selling of apple iphone in online market places of Bangladesh where most of them were not genuine. even if they were genuine, they were re-manufactured by local shops using several parts of several phones, which ultimately would not work with apple ID.

now another news on several other fake electronics, where you will get a product which looks like genuine but rubbish inside, literally RUBBISH. picture shows lithium ion batteries filled up with sand and portable HDD made from pendrive. Believe it or not, this could actually happen in your case as well.

So, "be aware of buying" or should i say "beware of buying" electronics online.

Timely post. Online marketplace are full of vague products. We should be more careful while buying products from online.

I can't agree more! I have seen many of my friends got cheated. Online shopping sites do not take the liability of fake products as they tend to shift that burden to the providing vendors! I suggest you only order products from a trusted, well-known established sites who at least has some reputation to loose
