With a few tricks, however, consumers can get this back.

Internet fraud: consumers can get their money back

Fraudsters are always finding new tricks to get money - this is also the case with Ebay classifieds.

Fraud can result in consumers paying for their purchase but never receiving the goods.

This happens not only on Ebay, but also with expensive purchases in supposed online shops.

However, there is the possibility of getting the lost money back, as reported by the

consumer

advice center.

It usually looks bad with transfers, because once the bank has made the payment, it can no longer be reversed.

The situation is different with the Sepa direct debit, because with this payment method it should be the easiest to get the money back (more digital news at RUHR24).

According to the

consumer advice

center, you have eight weeks from the time of the debit to reverse a legitimate or approved direct debit.

In most cases it is enough to take a closer look, as the

NDR

reports.

This allows consumers to pay close attention to the name of the provider - often a minimal change of name is enough to fool buyers.

In addition, the name of the company can be entered into a search engine with the terms "fraud" or "field report".

If it is a fake shop, consumers may find evidence of it.

A call to the specified service hotline can often also help.

If, for example, private individuals then report it, fraud can already be assumed.

In the case of Internet fraud, those affected can use a few tricks to get their money back.

Another warning for a fake shop is a non-existent or incomplete imprint.

Addresses provided can also be found using Google Maps.

If an address does not exist in the first place, it is also suspicious.
