Internet Commerce Scams

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


In recent years, millions have been scammed out of money, for clothing and other fashionable items, over the internet..The shops pop up, daily, on Facebook & Pinterest. The catchy names of the shops are intentionally changed, on a regular basis, to confuse and gain trust from a never-ending trail of trustful buyers. There are literally too many "new company" names to list. Photos of beautiful models and the stylish clothing that they are advertising/selling are most often stolen from legitimate designers and shops. Most of the catchy named stores are based in China &/or other Asian countries. The most notorious entity, with many shops online, are associated with CHICV International Holding Company in/or around Beijing, China. The negative reviews from the individual shops are mind blowing and true. Any good reviews seem to come from paid sources. 

The merchandise appears to be SO very beautifully made (because of the stolen photos), with fine materials (they lie about fabric content) and customers are inclined to buy because the prices that they offer their goods at are so ridiculously cheap. When buyers finally receive their goods, IF they ever do, the goods are highly inferior to what the consumer saw, online... The shops most often substitute fine, quality fabrics, for the very cheapest fabrics available. So, when the payment has processed, it’s oftentimes too late to cancel the order or to have any recourse.

Even if a customer attempts to cancel their order, the companies will wait & reply when the time period has passed for a "proper cancellation." 

IF the company ever returns a message, they will not negotiate a full refund but will instead promise a half price refund, if anything at all. Most never answer.

Shipping back to China always outweighs what the item was originally worth. 

A full investigation needs to be done on this entire billion dollar scam, which is targeting people around the world, who have a weakness for beautiful clothing & accessories.

These companies should not have access to trustworthy online transactions, thru PayPal or any other source.

Facebook and Pinterest should investigate and cull out e-commerce entities for the blatant illegal usage of fashion model photographs and original clothing designs. 

PLEASE help us to help stop this internet SCAMMERY!!!!
