Refund requests are usually not properly resolved, increasing consumer dissatisfaction and feelings of helplessness.
3. How to Prevent

Purchase with caution: avoid impulsive spending, and be more careful with high-value goods marketed in live broadcasts, especially gold, silver and jewelry.
Ask for certificates: When purchasing valuable items such as gold, jade, etc., merchants should be asked to provide certificates and appraisal reports.
Use safe payment: Conduct transactions through official and reliable payment methods and avoid direct transfers to private accounts.
