The end of the year always shows a massive increase in online shopping. These shopping sprees aren’t always on well known and safe website. It is not unlikely that products are purchased from websites from outside the buyer’s country.
When you buy your gift online, and it turns out to be counterfeit, you should realize that the customs can detain the goods. This is of course a waste of money, but – even worse – you can stand there empty-handed before your mam, dad, girlfriend or boyfriend.
Also, you should note that buying stuff form outside your home country, can mean you have to pay additional VAT.
Beware of what you buy and where you buy it. And keep in mind the #1 shopping rule: if it seems too good to be true, it most likely is.
