Counterfeit products sold on Carousell

Keep seeing tons and tons of counterfeit products sold on Carousell
From sneakers to apparel to bags, out of every 10 at least 7 are counterfeit

How to deal with this issue?

No use lah
Report til finger cramped
Response very slow and most of the time nothing gets done
Even when the sellers get suspended, they easily create another new account

I'm really ashamed that Carousell is a breeding ground for these thieves

to the best of my knowledge, Carousell somehow managed to make such seller's phone completely unable to login to Carousell...even reinstaling doesnt help, they just are unable to access the Carousell app. I'm not sure how this is done, but they are doing it.

Even without people reporting it, Carousell's admin do prowl the listing to fish out suspicious sellers...

there is a fine balance between having a open community and one that blocks out counterfeit products completely, so if you have a suggestion on how they can solve this counterfeit issue, you can directly email them your suggestion de

The only way to get rid of these sellers is to be relentless and ruthless, have to really step up the policing efforts and not just rely on users to report. Obviously their current approach is not working because there are just so many new ones popping up every other minute.

I also believe more drastic actions are required such as reporting the registered users' HP number (used to log on) and other details to the authorities.

For every 1 buyer that exercised due diligence, there are another 5 that will somehow fall prey due to greed
Since Carousell is providing this platform for public use, it has to be socially, ethically and morally responsible to ensure illegal stuff are kept off the platform, especially with the increase popularity
