Nationwide, USA-December 5, 2013 (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
This week, Cyber Monday kicked off the busiest online shopping season of the year. When consumers flock to online purchasing, scammers look to them as easy prey for falling victim to scam. One company, WeGoLook helps to educate consumers while proving verification of items.
Big ticket items, such as high end electronics, vehicles, motorcycles, and antiques are at the top of consumer’s lists right now-but they also top the lists as targets for scammers. Cybercriminals will lure their victim in this holiday season by creating fake listings on eBay, Craigslist, or other auction platforms. The potential perfect gift may even seem too good to be true with generously completive pricing and close to perfect conditions.
Unfortunately, consumers need to have a heightened awareness to online scamming this season, especially when purchasing a big ticket item. Scammers will use the fake listings as an opportunity to have an individual pay for an item with the promise of shipping it from the seller. In many cases, the consumer is left empty handed and without their new car or electronic when the promised shipment is never received.
Fortunately, WeGoLook can ensure online purchasing decisions are safe and secure. The company specializes in dispatching one of their 10,000+ Lookers (Agents) to verify the existence of the item and seller’s claims. Lookers collect dynamic data through photos, video, and visual observation of the item onsite. WeGoLook Reports start at $59 for any asset, including properties, autos, heavy equipment, electronics, antiques, boats, and more.
WeGoLook has helped customers save thousands of dollars by avoiding purchases that were not accurately represented, as well as giving clients a peace of mind when purchasing items online.
For example; a potential consumer has seen items listed on eBay that appear to be legitimate. When dispatching a local Looker to the item, it is discovered that the item was misrepresented and severely damaged or the seller was unwilling to meet with the Looker to verify the item’s existence. WeGoLook has verified everything from pinball machines, houses, autos, movie projectors, boats, online dates, and more.
