Media: Russians may be allowed to open parcels with purchases before they are paid

Residents of the Russian Federation making purchases  in online stores and social networks have decided to be protected from fraud, Izvestia reports.

According to the publication, they want to provide Russians with the opportunity to upon receipt of cash on delivery parcels, open them before payment in order to check the goods purchased via the Internet. Corresponding changes to the rules for the provision of postal services have already been prepared by the authorities.

Earlier, the experts of the ONF project “For the Rights of Borrowers” sent a letter to the Ministry of Digital Transformation, in which they reported a lot of complaints about the fraud of online stores using the cash on delivery delivery scheme. In the parcels, instead of the expected purchases, there were low-quality products or even garbage. At the same time, buyers could not check the quality of the goods before paying for it. The ONF urged the head of the Ministry of Digital Development, Maksut Shadayev, to solve this problem.

Recall that in April 2022, the State Duma and Rospotrebnadzor made recommendations for Russians making purchases in online stores.
