Is Legit or a Scam?

Author: Adam Collins

February 21, 2024 is an online store that offers fashion products from pants to dresses and even sweaters. Recently, there have been a lot of inquiries on ScamAdviser whether is a scam or a legit online fashion store. This prompted us to do a deep dive into the website and bring you this in-depth analysis.

When Was Started?

On, I noticed they claim they started by “Élise Martin in 2019 in the United States.” Since many websites are known to exaggerate their start date, I was quick to dig deeper into this claim.

I was stunned to see the website, was registered in 2002, some 20+ years ago. This left me puzzled as I wondered if they bought an existing website. Did they actually start in 2019 and is the founder, Élise Martin, even real?

Scam websites have been known to claim to appear older than they seem as the older the website, the more believable it sounds. However, claiming to have been started in 2019 and having a website that was registered 20 years ago is a huge red flag.’s Suspicious Email, Location and Contact Info

When I checked their contact details, one thing struck my mind, their email reads,

As you can notice, this is a free, Gmail address that anybody can open or operate. This is highly suspicious as most legit businesses have a domain email. 

On top of the email, they also claim their WhatsApp number is +852 64321774.  When I checked it, +852 is a Hong Kong number which, though it does not mean it's a scam, is from a high scam-risk country.

They also list their address as 1313 NW 167th St, Miami, FL 33169. However, when I checked the address, there was nothing to suggest that was housed there. 

Lack of Customer Feedback

I could not find any online customer feedback on popular review sites such as Trustpilot, SiteJabber, or ScamAdviser. For a company that claims to have started in 2019, I found this to be odd.

Customer feedback is vital for online shopping as it tends to shed light on what to expect from the company. Lacks Social Proof

For an online shopping site operating in this digital era, the lack of social media presence was concerning, I could not find any social media buttons or the presence of on any of the popular social media platforms, However, this is not proof that it’s a scam but it does little to user confidence. 

Bottom Line: Is a Scam?

Overall, it is highly likely that may be a scam. The website was registered in 2002 while they claim their brand was founded in 2019. This casts huge doubts about their authenticity and makes us question whether they are genuine. uses a free email which is highly suspicious while their WhatsApp number originates from a high-risk country. There is no social proof and customer reviews are quite rare. 

It's prudent to exercise caution while shopping at There are more reputable online fashion stores and reliable online marketplaces out there.

A Gucci bag or a new iPhone for half the price? Who wouldn’t want to grab such a deal? Scammers know this too and try to take advantage of the fact. If an online deal looks too good to be true, think twice and double-check things. The easiest way to do this is to simply check out the same product at competing websites (that you trust). If the difference in prices is huge, it might be better to double-check the rest of the website. Check Out the Social Media Links Social media is a core part of ecommerce businesses these days and consumers often expect online shops to have a social media presence.
