Introducing Melanin Market’s Anti-Scammers Unit
I don’t know about you but one of the reasons I’m skeptical when shopping online is the fear of being scammed.
Or buy something and get something else in return, or never even getting it.
Worse still, when your ecommerce site doesn’t have clear resolution mechanisms for such scenarios.
You’re left in the wilderness like a lost calf in the midst of wolves.
And that’s what we’re trying to avoid here at Melanin Markets.
Because we value our customers and we’ve been through these scenarios before and we want to get rid of them.
So what did we do?
We created an all-inclusive Melanin Markets Anti-Scammers Unit that we’ve named BLACK. BOLD. & BREWED.
A community ran and managed by members of the melanin community, for the people, by the people, and of the people.
What is Black. Bold. & Brewed and how does it tie in with Melanin Markets?
- BBB, in short, is a community composed of everyone interconnected with Melanin Markets platform from Vendors, suppliers, consumers, employees and every stakeholder.
- It’s an online community to help share valuable information between members, share ideas, and improve the quality of businesses amongst ourselves.
- By extension, it serves as our anti-scammers unit, with consumers expected to share any feedback and experiences they encounter with unscrupulous dealers.
- As a community specifically composed of black businesses and consumers, we believe the bias of skin color found in other online markets will be eliminated and therefore, only genuine complaints will be filed.
- Melanin Markets wishes to categorically state that it has zero tolerance for scammers and fraudsters.
- Any vendor, supplier, or consumer found to be committing fraud will be eliminated from the community after which a full investigation with the authorities will be launched. And guaranteed, we shall always get to the bottom of it, leaving no stone unturned.
- BBB as a platform will make sharing of such scammers and fraudsters easier with no blame games. There is 100% freedom of speech without infringing others’ rights.
- BBB will also serve as a source of reviews for black businesses, helping consumers identify businesses that are doing well based on positive reviews.
- It will be like your usual review sites, but for Black Businesses and Consumers, because we have realized that we have been judged too harshly from those mainstream review sites for far too long. It’s time for us to own our own Business Review Platform for the Melanin Community.
