Sadly TWO people messaged me on Facebook to tell me about this “hot new freebie.” I don’t know if they’re part of the scam ring or they are victims themselves. One of them, “David”, insisted that they got theirs and sent a picture of what appears to be them holding their sample box. And the other, “Tara,” said her friend was affiliated with the company and asked her to promote the free sample offer.
Findings (What makes it fake?)
- This company, Taylors of Harrogate is legitimate, but the website the offer is on is not the same site. It is on a fake site that was cloned to look like the real one.
- The “Where to Buy” link on sample site goes to real legitimate company’s site. So, I clicked the Facebook page from the legit site and messaged the legit company. They confirmed this is a fake offer!
This is not a legit offer, it is spam.
Please make no mistake. The legit company is a real company who is being victimized by scammers just like those of us who signed up for this fake offer.
