Clothing scams

Post by alphacentauri » Sun May 22, 2016 4:57 pm

Please see the BuzzFeed article here
https://www.buzzfeed.com/sapna/say-no-to-the-dress
including the photos.

tl;dr People order clothes from sites owned by ShenZhen Global Egrow E-Commerce Co at extremely cheap prices and get extremely cheap clothes. So far, it's just a case of caveat emptor.

However, the BuzzFeed article has multiple photos documenting
1. the photo on their website was copied from another clothing manufacturer's ad, with the model's face and the photo watermark edited out
2. the goods received clearly do not match the photograph
3. the number of likes and enthusiastic good ratings on various sites (including WOT) raise a question of fake reviewers.

I note that trendsgal.com actually paid google for ad placement within searches too and several reviews on WOT do seem dubious at best.
