The online classified ads website www.bazaraki.com yesterday warned that an imposter claiming to be a representative of the site was calling up customers requesting payment for ads, which are actually free.
According to the director of the website, Saskia Koper-Groenevelt, “a woman called up a man who placed an ad for construction work and claimed to be calling from bazaraki.com, requesting money in order for the advert to be renewed or upgraded for the price of 97 euro. Luckily the man said he would think about it and gave no money”.
Bazaraki.com is in fact a free service. The company is investigating the possible number of victims and is considering taking legal and other actions.
If you have been contacted by someone claiming to be a representative of Bazaraki.com asking for money for ads, kindly email email@example.com immediately.
