Tempting offers – AK warns against fake heating related websites

The increased prices for numerous goods attract many fraudsters, especially on the Internet. The Tyrolean Workers’ Chamber is now warning against supposedly good offers that are well below the usual market price level. Experts help with questions.

The increased costs and sometimes enormous prices on many goods mean that consumers also look for cheap alternatives on the internet. Fraudsters also see this as an opportunity and lure people to fake bargain sites, especially when it comes to heating.

Suspected bait offers
The Tyrolean Workers’ Chamber (AK) is now warning against this scam. Recently, a Tyrolean woman fell for an alleged online store with cheap prices, which lured with firewood, wood briquettes or wood pellets well below the market price level. “Fortunately, she became skeptical because of the particularly low prices and asked us at AK Tirol,” reports president Erwin Zangerl. According to the imprint, the provider was a company in Retz in Lower Austria, but the company does not appear in the company register or in the economic compass. The watchlist-internet.at website also warns against the submission.

The page has already been deleted. The AK’s warning remains valid: it is believed “several fraudulent sites are trying to rip off consumers”.
