Scammers have also been eagerly awaiting the opening of a Primark store in Budapest

But not only the company and customers were waiting for the store to open in Hungary, the fraudsters were also waiting. Fraudsters abusing the Primark name and targeting customers are primarily trying to get customers' money through fake websites, which they pretend to be an online Primark store in Hungary, without sending anything to the orders placed.

Attempts to defraud customers – and their money – are particularly concerning because… Criminals tried to commit fraud even before the actual store opened. As Világgazdaság reported in mid-April, although the opening of the Budapest store was already confirmed, it did not have an online store.

Before the opening of the Primark store in Budapest, it was only possible to purchase from the company online in Great Britain, however, the customer could also encounter different interfaces in the Hungarian language in the weeks and months leading up to the opening of the Budapest store. Fraudsters became more active again – or rather remained so – during the store opening period, and as IT security Experts draw attention to thisthey are once again trying to defraud Hungarian customers with non-existent online Hungarian Primark stores.
