BEWARE OF LEGIT LOOKING SHOPPING SITES - YOU WILL NOT GET UR $$$ BACK!

As a fan of online shopping, I used to pride myself in being extremely vigilant of suspicious scam sites or attempting any seemingly fraudulent online transactions. Usually making online payments only through Paypal and hardly ever revealing credit card details. Right. NEVER say NEVER.

I'm still in shock that during a recent unfortunate evening, I had lapsed in my judgement of an extremely legit looking website from the UK and let's just say it was part of a huge scam SYNDICATE from CHINA and I'm never gonna get my money back. Bastards. ‪#‎screwyoujcappoc‬ ‪#‎criminals‬

For me, it was jcappoc.com (http://jcappoc.com/) which they have since deleted ) And they have many other websites hiding behind addresses from the UK, Denmark, US, German, Australia and New Zealand. They sell all sorts of things : Pandora jewellery, Nike shoes, etc. Things that unsuspecting buyers would want. Once the money goes to a ZLT Trading Technology, Beijing, China, it can never be credited back to your account. They shut down the site swiftly and start another. And there's NO ONE in the world who can stop them. ‪#‎isthereaworldinternetpolice‬ ?

FASHION RETAILER ASOS SLAMMED AFTER FAILURE TO DELIVER S'PORE ORDERS

I'd like to kindly warn our fellow Singaporeans against ordering from the UK-based fashion retailer ASOS until they have settled all their current missing order issues. The ASOS facebook page is inundated with complaints by people living in Singapore saying that they have not received their order. Apparently many orders made by residents of Singapore (including my own) in December 2015 to January 2016, which were expected to arrive in January 2016 - early February 2016, have gone missing.

According to recommendations by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), governments should do more to collect taxes on goods that consumers order from overseas websites in the future. This in turn would lead to consumers being levied with higher taxes for purchased goods.

Rise in number of online scams

Police have urged the public to take precautions when shopping online. This could mean not giving out bank account numbers, credit card details and personal information, checking the sellers' track record, or finding out more by contacting the sellers. They also urged the public not to help those they have met online to make fund transfers, as they may be aiding and abetting a criminal in receiving the proceeds from a crime.
