Sony Philippines Corporation has issued a warning to the public against purchasing laptops from a fake online seller in Facebook.
John B. de Leon is said to be using the company’s name in selling Sony VAIO laptops – the company has received numerous complaints about the seller after making payment to him and not receiving the product.
The seller is posting as a Sales Coordinator Employee of Sony Philippines – he instructs buyers to make payment via LBC, Cebuana Lhuillier or Western Union.
“This is to warn the public that John B. de Leon is not an employee of Sony Philippines, Incorporated. Neither is he associated nor connected in any way with the company. He is not and has never been vested with authority to represent Sony Philippines, Incorporated in any kind of transactions. Thus any purchases so made to John B. de Leon shall be at the risk and cost of the concerned person(s),” Sony said.
Sony Philippines reminded the public that it only sells Sony products through official Sony Centers and its authorised dealers and online distributors.
