Online Marketplace Monitoring by Onsist

The Internet has made it easy for unscrupulous sellers to hawk pirated and counterfeit goods, often passing it off as an authentic product. According to a recent study, counterfeit trade alone accounts for between 2.5% of international trade. Without exactly knowing what to look out for, the average consumer is deceived and ends up purchasing fraudulent services and goods. This is a risk to your reputation, bottom line and the safety of the consumer.

  • Fraudulent e-commerce websites – These are trademark and IP infringing websites and bear a remarkable similarity to the feel and look of the brand owner’s website.
  • Online marketplaces – B2B marketplaces have become a breeding ground for fraudsters. They use it to hawk and ship gray market and counterfeit products to the customers directly in large volumes.
  • Auction sites – An isolated internet auction is not something that the owner of a big brand typically pays attention to. But there is always a problem of it escalating into something big as it is bound to be replicated by unscrupulous fraudsters.
  • Mobile applications – This is the most recent and also the fastest growing channel for apps that ape famous e-commerce sites, apps that link to counterfeit items and pirated content or sophisticated phishing attacks or distributing malware.
