Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in the world.
But as one of its largest online retailers, you may want to take a few precautions before you book online.
Dubai Online Bookshop, one of Dubai’s biggest online retailers has posted a warning on its website.
The online shop has also launched an advisory on its official Facebook page that urges its customers to avoid using the popular social media platform in the UAE.
The company said that while there are some online stores offering online bookings, there are also several online bookers offering to buy books and ebooks for only 10% or less of the book price.
There are also some sellers offering “free” books and/or “free delivery” to bookings at discounted prices.
The advisory comes after an investigation by ABC News found that online book sales have become a serious problem in the country.
The Dubai Bookstore reported that there were more than 400 online book sellers operating in the city.ABC News’ Mohammed Saleh, David DeMarco, Ayesha Murti, David Shireman, Abdirahman Elshari and Amina Elshami contributed to this report.
