When buying something, it is essential to know who we are doing business with! Sometimes you find the best price from an unknown store, from a site that you have never heard of before. What to do?
Before buying, search the Internet for more information about the company or website, and look for possible news of fraud involving it. Just search with "company name + complaints" or "site name + reliable." This allows you to find out the opinion of other customers, how the company has treated them, and identifies possible problems. Never forget that other people's opinions are only one factor in coming to your own conclusion.
When accessing an e-commerce website, look for information about the store's physical address, the name of the company that maintains it, the company's taxpayer registration number, phone number and contact e-mails. If the company provides all this data on its site, this is one indication that it has nothing to hide and that you can contact it if you need to. Additionally, you can check out other information using the store's taxpayer registration number (CNPJ). Conduct a quick search on the Federal Revenue Service's website and verify whether the company's name is the same as the one that appears on the Federal Revenue's CNPJ registry. If you want even more assurance, in addition to these recommendations, you can contact the store using the data published on its website.
If the site does not provide any of the information mentioned here, be cautious and do not continue!
