If you shop online today, it's a good idea to be critical when you see offers that are just too good.
Because webshop scammers also sell out to day!
Although the language is Danish and you can pay with Danish kroner, you can not know for sure that the webshop is not a scam.
We have collected a number of good tips that you can follow when shopping online. It is also a good idea to read the e-label, the The Danish Consumer Council and the The Danish Competition and Consumer Authority’s (Danish only) advice on safe e-commerce.
Look critically at the webshop
Does the website seem credible? Misspellings, very low prices or prices that have strange numbers like DKK 376.43 can all be signs of a fraudulent website.
Also, check the webshop’s contact information. It should provide the company name, postal address, email address and phone number.
Check the web address (URL)
If you use a search engine, such as Google, to find a specific webshop, you should keep an eye on the web address. IT scammers can hack serious webshops, so that you are being redirected to a fake webshop.
Look for the e-mark
When you are shopping on a website that is e-marked, you can be sure that the shop complies with Danish law and is controlled by lawyers from e-mark
Find out what others says about the webshop
Perform a Google search or use a consumer review page like Trustpilot to check out other consumer’s experiences with the webshop.
