“They are not actually a black-owned brand but are posing as one. They own at 3 different “brands” with the same PO box. They’re Lettuce Eat Plants, and We Are the World. When I emailed them about my package, I discovered their fraudulence. When the item came in, the box didn’t even have the company’s name or address on it. Do not buy from them. If you find them on Instagram, madewithmelaninco, report the page.”, says user Sara Lafrance.

Second, the Made With Melanin messages on Instagram are sent via online bots. “Hello, we are looking for brand ambassadors who support BLM. Please send us a message at our main account @madewithmelaninco ASAP. Hope to hear from you.”, says the bot. Why bot?

This message is the same that comes on Instagram from another company that attracted many negative reviews, OD Collective. However, as Instagram is full users who think are major influencers, many fall victim to this instant gratification title.

One of the other incentivizing details that lure people into becoming a Made With Melanin brand ambassador is that they might receive a 30% discount. However, as we found on many online reviews, that is not the case.

Lastly, and probably the most important factor to determine the Made With Melanin scam, is the date when the domain name was registered: June 2, 2020! Red flags all over – it is impossible for a clothing website to become that popular in just a few weeks. You can see the registration details HERE.

Before we go into how to report the scammers, beware of other common Internet schemes such as the Phar Sold Scam.
