I’m very sure that many people have heard and know of the name Lazada. It’s pretty much the household name for online shopping these days to the point where people go window shopping and search for better deals over at Lazada. Daily supplies and gadgets are bought from Lazada too. With so many customers heading over to Lazada to purchase items, it’s bound to have lots of sketchy deals. Lazada scam are on the rise!

This PSA is to ensure that our readers are aware of these scams and will not fall victim to these schemes.

There are a few distinct scam schemes that I want to highlight here. Without further ado, let’s begin. We’re splitting this Lazada scam PSA into two parts – one highlighting the different types of scams, and the second part on how to identify and avoid these scams.

Fake items

Firstly, fake items. I’m giving the sellers benefit of the doubt that they do not know these items are fake. The suppliers/manufacturers of these items are the scammers.

I have seen this type of scams way too much, and it’s not new or exclusive to Lazada either. These flash storage – be it USB drives or SD/microSD cards – have an exceedingly high capacity at a very low price. The price is actually way too low. Have you ever seen RM46.96 for a 128GB microSD card?

There’s one 512GB for RM45 too. Just wow.

Someone actually fell victim to these sorts of Lazada scam. I feel bad for this guy. He lost many of his pictures. Leaving the technical details aside on how this happens for now, there’s no way to retrieve these pictures. They’re lost forever.

Again, it’s not exclusive to microSD cards only. The same goes to headphones as well. Have a look at this.

Also, be careful when it comes to 2TB external hard disks like this one. Too cheap to be true. Has a few questionable descriptions, and horrendous reviews.

Paying through other channels

Lazada is an e-commerce platform. How they earn is through commission per sales made through Lazada. All sales are monitored and in some ways, protected by Lazada in case of broken items, shipment issues, or item returns in general.

Credits to Kongsi Info Online Shopping Offers (KIOSO) and the good people there to dig up more information. Gurvin Abruzzi actually paid the scammer through Lazada. Smart move there, Gurvin. Paying through Lazada means he’s protected. Gurvin reassured us that Lazada is going to pay him back if the seller is not doing anything.

UPDATE: Lazada has refunded Gurvin!

Lazada just marked it as “out of stock” and refunded. That’s actually quite sad.

  1. Well I almost fell into the Lazada Scam too but am glad I wasn’t that desperate so I turned the order down after chatting with the seller on what’s app and he objected my making payment on Lazada.

  2. I also got scammed on lazada. I bought an internet rooter with a easy 7 days return and asked for the return which was accepted but the seller is refusing the refund saying that the product is working. It’s not the point. I even dont know if it’s working or not. It’s just a SCAM. I file a dispute with Lazada and will see if they are professional. Hopefully they are or I will never take the risk to buy again.

  3. The question is why don’t Lazada remove these obviously scamming sellers? You see so many now with supposedly new high end phones being offered at ridiculously low prices. It’s so obvious it can’t be true and I am happy to see there are practically no takers foolish enough to believe it.

  4. As per the above incident same thing happen with me a dell high end laptop giving away 50 % less in discount initialy i was surprised butjust tried so the seller immediately messae me to send him money directly to his acount next he said ok u pay half andpay halflateri did not agreed i saidi willreport again u he said i have 100 of lawyers , finally he cancelled the order then , this is one issue , now another issue is i deposited 2,500 to lazada wallet to get 5 % discount as always ads poping out finally get traped to my greedness for a mere 5 % discounts , now lazada not returning back money to my bank first i chat with Cleo their official chat officer then i literlly pissed off i told them i wwill go and report against them then some one called me we will return ur money next week but it is almost 10 days i did not get anymoney yet , i tried to all they now changed the no how difficult , after i get back my money i just delete the lazada account forever and i am so much worried about these online buying stuffs …

  5. i was also scammed i paid a solar charger but when i open it was very light, broken and unusable i paid 487 including the shipping fee my problem now is how the return the items it was shipped from china i dont know if its true or not.

  6. I was scammed too, they keep on requesting I should recharge to perform a given task but endup bringing a higher task, when I noticed much suspicious movement I start doing more research. It’s so painful all my savings is gone, am left with nothing and I have 3kids, no food no money, I was looking for a job that will help me in life after university and no good job. Really painful 💔 😢 . Almighty God will fish them out. 🙏

  7. I ordered Lumos LED projector, but received a straw, have contacted LAZADA and waiting for their solution to such scam, the product posted is now not available …

  8. Either their delivery guy is a problem or 1k sellers are problematic. They called ppl to stake out at your house, capture your dog saying oh you let them loose and use that reason to fine you million for it. Yup very dangerous people. They are connected to street thug. Either shoppee or lazada
