Today we will talk about a topic useful to many people who want to take a capillary prosthesis or a wig, that of avoiding scams, present in all types of sales and even more ‘in the field of sales of these products so important for the psyche of those suffering from alopecia and baldness.
Anyone who has used these hair replacement systems for a long time knows how scams are often possible and present and how to defend themselves against some, but not all.
Clearly in the article we will give you some indications, but as you know the scammers always have new ideas and therefore we certainly will not cover all the possibilities of scam that there are, therefore we invite you to read the article and to help us if you know other types of scam to the detriment of the customer.
1 Avoid people who show up in lab coats and talk like doctors.
Hair prostheses and wigs are sold in 99% of cases by normal traders, not by doctors, who uses the gown to sell you a hair thickening without surgery is showing up for those who are not… in these cases ask for the qualification and see if you really are dealing with a doctor or just a charlatan who shows up for who he is not.
You have to pay close attention to this type of merchants and if you can avoid them .
They are abusing your pathology and your frailties to ask you for prices much higher than the right ones for a haircut, making the wig appear for what it is not.
Remember, prostheses are textiles, no drugs or surgery, so pay attention to this category of vendors who pretend to be doctors, 9 out of 10 will cheat you, selling you old-fashioned products for excessive prices.
Doctors in the field of baldness can perform transplants or drug treatments, certainly in 99% of cases they do not create a company for the sale of hair implants replacement systems .
2 Avoid those who use descriptions that don’t want to say anything and are full of strange terms.
Always in the context of scammers there are those who, to describe a wig or a hair prosthesis, use absurd terms, which do not mean anything, such as hair nanotechnologies systems, capillary avatar systems, skin reconstructors dermo head, and many other words that semantically do not want to say anything .
These people use these techniques to make you believe that only they in the world have that type of solution, but it is not like that, they are selling you a normal hair replacement prosthesis, which they all have, using science fiction terms to make you pay them much much much more than they should .
Ask for photos of the base and simple description of the same … most likely they will not even answer you.
In the 1980s, a hairsystems could cost tens thousands of dol.
Many people made bank loans to buy them.
Those who use these techniques come from this school, the school of entrepreneurs who sold very normal hairpieces for hundreds of times the real lotus price and had created real empires of the hairpiece.
Traders who now, because of the internet, which has allowed everyone to know the true price of wigs, are looking for old methods to earn much much more than they should AND CANNOT TRADE respecting customers and market prices.
3 beware of ads with photos and videos of other companies and absurdly low prices.
This scam technique is purely new, and born with the internet, it occurs mainly on social networks, such as Instagram or Facebook.
You see a video of a beautiful wig (from another company, which sells it for much more given the quality of the same) but for sale for a few tens of euros (usually around 15-30 euros) … they are selling you a Carnival wig, costing 2-3 euros, using photographic material of high quality wigs’.
When you receive the system it will be practically impossible to ask for a refund.
4 Beware of those who present impossible technologies to you.
In the context of scammers there are also those who present technologies that clearly do not exist.
For example, a few days ago I saw a video on facebook in which the seller presented the prosthesis as intelligent and self-healing.
He said that secla base was torn thanks to the intelligent technology inherent in it self-regenerated and repaired by itself.
In these cases, just think a little and you immediately understand that we are dealing with a scammer.
Think well… is there such technology in other areas?
Is it possible that the owner of such an advanced technology, capable of self-regeneration and self-repair, starts selling hair implants instead of products with much more diffusion?
Here it is easy to understand that you are facing a scam.
TIPS ON THE COMPANIES YOU MUST CONTACT
1 Companies with clear websites, clear price list and precise description of the different wigs and accompanied by photos of the bases.
FUNDAMENTAL THIS ELEMENT!
IF YOU BUY A WIG OR A HAIR PROSTHESIS YOU MUST KNOW THE BASIS TO WHICH THE HAIR IS ANCHORED AS IT IS MADE AND A PRECISE DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT.
In fact, a serious company has every interest in that the customer knows exactly what he is buying so as to avoid problems in the future when he receives and uses the prosthesis …
A serious company wants happy and satisfied and aware customers, SO AS TO HAVE A POSITIVE SPIRIT AND LOTS OF NEW PURCHASES.
2 Companies that have an important community…
That is, a forum, frequented social networks, in short, a pool of customers that is testimony to the reliability of the company and the fact that by ordering from them you will hardly be scammed.
A large community is, in our opinion, the most important element to avoid scams.
Behind companies that defraud customers, it is impossible for large communities to exist, because customers themselves would immediately deceive the scam in the community itself.
Have you ever noticed that all these companies I told you about before: white coats, strange terms, absurd technologies, ridiculous prices and use of others’ videos, never have a forum, or a you tube or facebook channel?
Here, pay close attention to this element, really important to avoid scams.
