Reports about travel and vacation issues beat the list of COVID-19-related complaints from buyers in New York, while broadly reports about online shopping top the list of shopper complaints, as indicated by new information released by the Federal Trade Commission.
Most of the COVID-19-related travel and vacation complaints from purchasers are about issues with cancellations and refunds. COVID-19-related purchaser complaints about online shopping incorporate reports about items not showing up or not showing up when guaranteed, and items that are unique about advertising. The FTC started releasing COVID-19-related complaint information in late March and is presently releasing more insight regarding the sorts of complaints it has gotten from shoppers in each state.
From Jan. 1 through June 8, New York customers announced losing more than $3.8 million to extortion identified with the pandemic, with a median loss of $245. Notwithstanding vacation and travel-related complaints, other top COVID-19-related fraud complaints from New York buyers included online shopping issues and a variety of issues with services and activities booked online, particularly cancellation of events.
