Fruugo Australia Rip-off merchants

Internet scams are a plenty, where many dodgy businesses try to hide the way they extort (or defraud) the consumer of cash.

In this example we take a look at a company called Fruugo Australia, where the word Australia would allude to purchasing something from an Australian business.

The item being a memory card, shows us that Fruugo Australia put a price on it at $46.95.

What the poor sighted consumer may miss is that the shipping cost is a whopping NINETY DOLLARS and twenty cents.

Upon further investigation, the so called product is in Austria.

According to the manufacturer the 'appearance' of the card is as follows:


Dimensions (Max.)11 mm x 15 mm x 1 mm (0.43" x 0.59" x 0.04")
Weight (Max.)0.4 g (0.01 oz)

$90 to post an item that is similar size to someone's fingernail that can literally posted in a standard envelope.

We do not recommend purchasing anything from 'Fruugo Australia'.
