Is it safe to pay someone with cash? How can I protect myself if I paid in cash? Take these tips from the best lawyer in Dubai with you to become a smarter consumer and avoid fraud:
Know who you’re dealing with.
Pay the safest way. Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented.
Fully understand the offer. A legitimate seller will give you all the details about the products or services, the total price, the delivery time, the refund and cancellation policies, and the terms of any warranty. Contact the seller if any of these details are missing, if they are unable to provide the details, it may be a sign that it’s a scam.
If you pay a bill in cash, ask the party receiving payment to record it in their records and give you a sales receipt. The receipt should show your name, a short description of the product or service purchased, the transaction date, and the amount paid. The receipt also should include the signature of the clerk or other person receiving payment. If this is a recurring bill, you should keep the sales receipt until you receive the next billing statement showing the previous bill was paid.
