Surrey Police : Alert – bogus electrical websites

29 November 2015

Fraudsters have set up high specification website templates advertising various electrical goods and domestic appliances. The goods are listed below market value and do not exist. The fraudsters will request your card details via the website, however the purchaser will then receive an email stating the payment failed and they must pay by bank transfer. By doing so, the fraudsters entice the purchaser and reassure them it is a legitimate purchase by using the widely recognised Trusted Shop Trustmark. The fraudsters are using the Trustmark fraudlulently and have not been certified by Trusted Shops and therefore the purchaser is not covered by the Trusted Shop money-back guarantee.
