According to reports from consumers in São Paulo, the website of the retailer Magazine Luiza is being targeted by fraudulent actions. Two consumers informed Reclame Aqui that the search for appliances on sale returned with malicious links.
“I was researching a washing machine, and I found through Google a website that claimed to be ‘Magalu’, with an affordable price, but the website was fake. I didn’t pay attention, because it was so identical to the original that I didn’t suspect. I bought the supposed machine and, after that, I found it strange that nothing had arrived in my email, no message. I did a deeper search and came across other complaints from other people. Do not buy on this site, pay more attention to the details of the site” , says the user.
