How to avoid being scammed when buying a sex doll

The advent of the internet is described by many as the biggest revolution in the world. Not only has it enhanced convenience in how people share and receive information, but online shopping has been simplified more than ever. You can now visit an online store, browse through its products, and click to buy without lifting a finger.

However, with great power comes responsibility. The simplicity introduced by the internet carries with it a hoard of challenges. One of the greatest issues of online shopping is security concerns. More and more people report online shopping scam cases every day with a great percentage of the reports resulting in financial loss.

The sex doll industry is a great example of a hotbed of scammers. Ask me why-  it’s an entirely online shopping business with very less human contact. Scammers are ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims any time of the day, as soon as an opportunity presents itself. And with the worldwide appreciation and acceptance of sex dolls, these get-rich-quick swindlers are more than ready to tap into the growing market.

So, how do you go about avoiding the scammers, especially if you are a first-time sex doll buyer? We’ll look into some of the tips that will help you identify a scam before you become a victim. And with the speed at which the swindlers are becoming creative in devising new ways to prey on you, it important that you learn how to cope up.

There are two major forms of scam you are bound to experience when buying a sex doll. The first one involves getting a subpar sex doll that does not match the one you ordered. This is one of the most common forms of scam where the seller deceives the buyer using flashy images on the website. Once the buyer gives in, the delivered sex doll does not look anything like what was ordered. The disparity may be in terms of the appearance, the materials used, the size, among others.

Probably the most disappointing among the two, the second scam happens when the buyer goes through a website, picks a sex doll, and pays for it but never receives it. The seller puts up a website with unauthentic images of sex dolls, maintains a rapport throughout the transactional phase, and goes offline as soon as you make the payment. Quite heartbreaking. Don’t you think?

Scammers are everywhere, and anyone can be a victim. And regardless of the form of scam, prevention is better than cure. So, before you become a victim, here are some of the tips on how to avoid being scammed when buying a sex doll.

What to Avoid at All Costs

  • Deals that are too good to be true, the price is too low
  • Unauthorized sellers, sketchy websites, no trusted reviews
  • Popular marketplaces (Alibaba, Aliexpress) and some other websites at times have fake listings and scammers that only last a few weeks or days, they basically copy or steal photos and ship very low-quality products.
