1.As international trade over the Internet increases, Internet-related fraud is also becoming more common. With the rapid increase in transactions by 1st-product.com member companies, we are witnessing a marked rise in the number of innocent victims of fraud. At 1st-product.com, we are doing our utmost to minimize the financial losses sustained in such cases.
2.At present, when a user reports a case of fraud to us, we delete the suspect's offers and web site and cancel their membership to guard against possible repeat offences. We also maintain a blacklist of offenders to ensure that they do not gain admittance to 1st-product.com at a later date. It is important to note that these steps may be taken on the suspicion of fraud, before obtaining evidence. The 1st-product.com Terms & Conditions provide that 1st-product.com may cancel not only any member company's membership but also any member's registered offers at its own discretion.
3.1st-product.com cannot act as a mediator in disputes between companies regarding cases of fraud. By its very nature, international fraud is extremely difficult to prosecute, and while small cases are frequent, few are resolved satisfactorily. All 1st-product.com members are advised to be vigilant at all times.
