Welcome to Check It Out.

In the last year, over 4 million UK shoppers bought a fake electrical product and a quarter of these were purchased from an online marketplace.

Did you know that when you buy from an online marketplace, you are buying from an unregulated third party seller? This lack of regulation means that it is easy for counterfeit and sub-standard products to be sold.

How to stay safe online

When you buy from an online marketplace, it can be difficult to know who the seller is so if there is a problem with the product, you may not be able to get in touch with them to sort it out.

Tips to stay safe online:

Download the Check It Out extension.

Always buy products from retailers you know and trust.

Don’t rely on images and reviews – these can be faked.

If a bargain looks too good to be true, it probably is!
