According to a Tech expert, he noticed that many online auctions on Facebook are mostly second-hand goods or third-grade goods. It started out as a few videos and recently it has gotten annoying with the number of live videos on Facebook.
The local tech expert also shared that many of the goods are either bought from Carousell or cash converter(local 2nd hand markets)
This was discovered when one of the auctioneers attempted to sell a 2nd hand 1TB hard disk and the labels on the disk itself were torn off from the hard disk and the sellers was questioned by the viewers why the hard disk was not in an anti-static bag.
Turns out the response from the auctioneers was that “oh sorry, don’t worry we have another one in a plastic bag”. The plastic bag looks like those kinds for epok epok.
Normally, brand new hardware such as Harddisk or graphics card is wrapped in anti-static bags to prevent any static electricity that might potentially kill off the device.
Since this is happening for techware. How about clothes?
Who knows if the clothes are 2nd hand or even worse “dead people” clothes.
There is almost no way to verify this.
