Troti-velo.fr will never send your product
After the site "trottinette-boutique.com" which closed a few weeks ago, it is now the fraudulent site "troti-velo.fr" which is trying to scam you.
Although they are indicated everywhere on their site that it is possible to make payment by credit card, when finalizing the order, only bank transfer is possible.
In the event of payment by bank transfer in a bank abroad, you have no means of recovering your money. It is only possible to contest it for a period of 48 hours after sending. But in the case of this scam, the delivery time systematically exceeded this deadline. You will then be deducted from your sum without ever receiving your product .
A well-honed and efficient technique
Scammers lure you into their nets with bargain prices well below all market prices . Don't be fooled and look on the internet for the average price of your item if it is sold by several stores. But again, this is not the case with Weebot electric scooters.
How to spot the scam when buying a scooter?
The methods to spot a scam site is however relatively easy. but it does require a little attention. First of all, trust the professionals in the sector . In addition to benefiting from quality service, a site like Weebot provides after-sales service for your product.
Read the T&Cs carefully
Do not hesitate to consult the general conditions of sale. There are sometimes many typos in this part on fraudulent sites. When these do not duplicate ours for example, we can sometimes realize that the text is only a result of google translation. Because the scammers are not satisfied with French territory but duplicate their site in many countries.
Try to call them on the phone
If a phone number is available, you can try to reach them. If this is not a French number, this is already relatively suspicious. But sometimes you will not be able to reach absolutely anyone through this number.
Copy-paste product sheets
Also remember to consult the product sheets. To save time, the scammers are content with a simple copy and paste of reference sites in the world of electric mobility. This proves once again the lack of seriousness of this kind of scam.
Very recent domain name
It is also possible to query the WHOIS database to find out more about the domain name of the site in question. In the case of troti-velo.fr, it is indicated as created in July 2021 (see image below). This is an indicator that the reliability of the site may be in doubt. But when it's hosted by cloudflare, there's no doubt about it. Cloudflare to anonymize site data.
