Konga has alerted the public of an alleged fake website “attempting to defraud customers using our brand name”, according to an advisory issued Wednesday by the e-commerce company.
“Our attention has been drawn to the activities of unscrupulous and faceless individuals and groups attempting to defraud customers using our brand name, the latest being the use of a bogus and fake website (https://konga18.com/#/login), “ Konga says in an email alert seen by Technology Times.
“These scammers,” Konga says, “have leveraged the trust reposed in us by our customers to attempt various fraudulent activities on unsuspecting shoppers.”
The e-commerce company disowns the alleged fake site, says that “Konga has no form of affiliation with this site – https://konga18.com/#/login – or any other site whatsoever that is not our official website. Our official website is www.konga.com.”
Konga, which is asking its customers to “stay alert, and be on your guard against fraudulent activities”, warns that, “anyone transacting any business on this fake website is doing so at huge personal risk. We understand that their modus operandi involves insisting that ‘would-be’ customers prepay for their orders.”
According to the e-commerce company, “we advise all our customers and members of public who wish to patronise us, that our official website remains www.konga.com and any news, update, or discount will be communicated via our website and social media pages.”
Konga adds further that “our customers have a multiplicity of payment options to choose from, including payment on delivery which is available in Lagos , Abuja, Port Harcourt, Edo, Ogun, Delta, Sokoto, Nasarawa and Kaduna. You can also pay for anything you order on Konga.com or in any of our physical stores using other payment options, the most popular of which is KongaPay.”
