Another fact that draws attention to the monitoring of the volume of claims this afternoon. The period was busy: users made an average of 230 complaints per hour. There was an increase in relation to the dawn, considered "rush hour" of complaints. From 0h 1h, for example, the site had 126 records.
According to the complaints website, it is still necessary to wait for the official end of Black Friday for a general balance, but it can already be said that the 2018 edition had an increase in disputes compared to the previous year.
