It all started when the online media in.gr, tanea.gr and protothema.gr posted articles stating that the company under the name Skroutz deceived the consumer public through its cooperation with the company 365shop, which always according to specific accounts on twitter, it extorted money from citizens who, while paying for their order, never received it.
Let's see what followed: In the last few days, a lot of posts have been circulating on social media regarding another online store incident and orders placed through Skroutz, paid for, but never reached the customer.
A few days ago, complaints were made about 365shop. Skroutz then announced the termination of cooperation with the specific online store, stating that the complaints concerned transactions outside the platform.
In fact, Skroutz's management responded via twitter, claiming that since the purchases were made outside its marketplace, it does not bear any responsibility.
But all of the above was just the beginning.
While everything seemed to be over after the announcement of the company on April 9, 2022, on 13/04/2022, the website tanea.gr, posted an article entitled: Complaint - collusion against Skroutz for deceiving customers, bringing the issue back to the forefront.
On 14/04/2022 at 7:15, the informative website in.gr, posted the same article as tanea.gr on the Newsroom level, which also has the title: Complaint - collusion against Skroutz for deceiving customers, also listing the tweets of so-called angry consumers.

On 14/04/2022 at 8:15 the informative website protothema.gr publishes the first "report" which highlights the "rage" on twitter against skroutz.gr with the title: #Cancel_Skroutz: Rage on social media for a long time online fraud through the popular platform.
The strange thing, however, is that the hashtag #Cancel_Skroutz started popping up on twitter after the posts, and specifically after noon on April 14, which did not go unnoticed by users.

#Cancel_skroutz started spinning on twitter 59 minutes ago. In the press, however, they discovered it 4 hours earlier. It's like an inherited gift. #cancel_shopflix
Twitter users noticed that the hashtag #cancel_skroutz was launched by supposedly dissatisfied consumers. A closer look found that there were too many new twitter accounts, who had only one post. Guess what was the hashtag they posted: #cancel_skroutz
At the same time, there were many users who considered that the specific media benefited from the outbreak against skroutz.gr, as their owner, the shipowner Vangelis Marinakis, maintains the new marketplace under the name shopflix. Twitter users report that the shipowner's intention was for the company skroutz.gr to lose its credibility in order to increase the popularity of shopflix, as a result of which a new wave with the hashtag #cancel_shopflix broke out.
It is obviously a coincidence that the prime minister has just set up his own platform # Μαρινάκης, I wanted to say, took such an extent the #cancel_skroutz - especially from SMEs owned by him. #cancel_shopflix https://t.co/4giE3p4Kgo

The @skroutzit brought cheaper products and boosted the small shops that had been drowned out by the chain cartels. It is quite by accident that he is attacked by the media of the Marinakis group that shopflix has. Do not give your money to Vangelas. Shop from grocery stores via skroutz.

Let the small shopkeepers get ready to pay a crazy start to our National Trafficker Vangela Marinaki for a place in #cancel_shopflix of. Otherwise cement will fall.
We are such a soft people, that their blackmail will succeed completely.#cancel_skroutz pic.twitter.com/qGKYbQXBkm

Not a single euro in Marinakis's shop. Skroutz is fine. Marinaki take the bots to another neighborhood. #cancel_shopflix
