List of Scamming Websites: Add Your Experience
We have received so many online shopping fraud complaints in the last few weeks that we decided to publish this page for public awareness and consumer protection. You can add your bad experience – if you have one – in the Comments section below and contribute to the list of scamming websites we are collecting in 2020. We will explain in this article how the crooks pull their fraudulent moves, so feel free to expose the names of questionable businesses. Report fake online shops or Facebook Marketplace scams at the end of this article. Let’s begin.
We will start with a couple of examples, but first, here is a question: do you know how to tell if a website or a profile is fake?
How To Tell If a Website Is Fake
Watch the video below and see how to check if a website is legit:
Fake Online Shopping Websites: You Buy The Item But Never Get It
Let’s get into it. The first example of a fake online shopping website is the type of ‘business’ that has a great site with many good-looking products, whether they are electronics, gadgets, clothes, or accessories. It makes you buy an item but then – although you get a confirmation of your purchase – you will not get it delivered (watch out for the FedEx Text Message Scam).
But there is more.
Let’s take the case of Michael D. who sent us this: “www.transcend.store is a scam site. I ordered a splash drone and never received it. They even gave a fake USPS tracking number. When you track it, it reads USPS currently awaiting the package. I’ve sent them several emails and called without receiving any response.”
Below there are some screenshots of Michael’s purchased item correspondence with Transcend.store:
“Where Can I Buy Fake Designer Clothes Online”? If You Could Only Receive Them…
Clothing is a category that makes a lot of victims in the online shopping world. What’s interesting is that many people even acknowledge the fact that most websites sell counterfeit consumer goods. However, they rather buy fakes as long as they look good or if the reviews are fine (watch out for the Amazon Vine scam). We were asked several times questions like this one: “Where can I buy fake designer clothes online? What’s the best fake designer clothes website that people reported to you?”
Well, if you want to buy replicas, that’s fine, but at least make sure you get what you paid for. Avoid scams like the Ovahia Leggings one. There are a bunch of scammers who feature beautiful clothes on their websites, but when you purchase anything you will never get it. The target market of the online clothing store scammers is definitely the ladies.
Let’s look into more examples.
It is the case of Ellen R., as well: “Berrylook.com on Facebook is a huge scam! They take your money but don’t send you the products you paid for!”, said Ellen in a message to Scam Detector.
“They said they received my order and will respond in 24 hours, which they didn’t. I paid by credit card. I have seen too late that many people have reported Berrylook.com.”
List of Scamming Websites 2020: What To Do Before Buying
What to do before purchasing online? One rule of thumb is to always check the company owning the website on the Internet by adding the word ‘scam’ or ‘complaint’ in the search engine. Also, look for all their names on the BBB listings – if they have a profile there.
What’s your story? Add in the Comments section below your experience and write down the names of the scammers you dealt with. Meanwhile, if you decide to take your complaint online through social media, make sure you don’t fall for the Fake Customer Representative Scam. Last but not least, when you fill your purchase form online, don’t fall for the Dinar Guru scheme.
