Scam free zone

Scam free zone


From March 29th, Décathlon's launches an assault on internet scammers with its video: "Classifieds". It's about time.

If you've ever bought a car with the engine missing or slimming pills made of aspirin; if you've ever adopted a cat that turned out to be stuffed, you'll know that the internet is full to the brim with shameless scammers. Now Décathlon and BETC Shopper have made it their business to fight back against this plague with a campaign on Facebook.

A mini-bike sold as a full size bicycle, sawn-off adult skis passed off as children's skis, a single roller skate and its mirrored reflection sold as a pair…these three (100% mobile) videos showcase some of the web's worst swindles - and might even put you off looking for these kind of bargains.

Luckily, its aim is simply to promote a service: It's a system that lets you have your sporting goods checked for free by the experts at Décathlon, fix the proper price for whatever it is you're buying or selling, and deal with private sellers that have been vetted by the brand. So in future, use Trocathlon. And think twice before adding that dodgy treadmill to your shopping basket.
