Key Things Every Consumer Needs to Know

Greetings to all of you fashion consumers out in the world.  I know you all probably know the name brand Chanel and most of you most likely love it.  Well if you are ahead of the trends and love to shop high-end fashion then Chanel is the brand for you, but did you know there can be dangers when it comes to purchasing fake Chanel products?  That danger is more commonly known as replica Chanel.

Replicas could be found anywhere around the world.  There may even be a counterfeiter selling near you.  Consumers are well advised to become informed and aware of the dangers these knockoff could pose.  Here are a few helpful tips that every consumer should be aware of and frequently check before they go shopping.

  1.  Do not believe everything you are told.  Vulnerable consumers are the ones who get conned the most.  By teaching yourself common phrases counterfeiters may use to draw you in, you will be less likely to be scammed.  Don’t fall for popular phrases such as; “Discounted Chanel’s, get em before their gone!”  or “Like new Chanel’s on sale now!”.  These are just a few of the colorful phrases frauds weave together in order to catch your attention.
  2. If the deal sounds too good to be true it most likely is.  Again you can’t believe everything you are told, if you do then you will be scammed into buying a replica Chanel product.
  3. Don’t give out your personal information such as credit card or address to just anyone.  You need to be completely sure of where you are shopping, and completely sure that you are not buying a product from a criminal.
  4. Counterfeiters are criminals.  Producing and selling knock-off Chanel products is a serious crime that is punishable.  By purchasing these heinous products you are becoming an accessory to their crime and helping them get away with it.
  5. The World Wide Web can be a dangerous place for shoppers.  Shoppers tend to be more vulnerable online and are manipulated easier.  This is where many counterfeiters prey on the weak.  Be sure to only shop at the authentic Chanel website and report anything that seems suspicious.

Keep these tips in mind next time you shop and you won’t be conned by a fraud trying to selling you a piece of trash.
