How do I recognise a fake shop?
Fake shops can be recognised by the following typical signs:
Unusually low prices
The rip-off artists usually advertise with exceptionally cheap prices, which are considerably below the market price. You should definitely be more careful regarding such online shops.
Many fake shops have either no imprint on the website or an imprint (Impressum in German) with incomplete information about the company. The imprint (legal information) should contain the complete address, the e-mail address, the number in the commercial register as well as the name of the authorised representative.
