    Default Has anyone purchased fitflops?

    Hi there
    I am just having a panic as I have entered credit card details onto a website that I am now wondering if it is dodgy. www.fitflopsaleaustralia.com.
    Has anyone ever purchased shoes of this site?
    Would love to hear from someone that has purchased and they are happy.

    Sorry I have no idea. Did it come up with the secure site icon?

    What made you think it was dodgy? I've just had a look at the website and unfortunately, it doesn't look good :/

    A couple things i noticed:
    - The service email address is a gmail email account
    - the website looks a bit scrappy
    - a few spelling errors I saw
    - they accept western union (know to be used by fraudsters)
    - the reviews are all roughly from the same date



    I would be calling your bank ASAP to cancel your card if you are in doubt at all.. Too many things scream alarm bells for me

    (I hope I'm wrong for your sake)

    http://www.scambook.com/report/view/...-on-08-26-2011 on the same site also there are comments that some people had received some but they were really bad fakes.



    Call your bank ASAP

    Thanks everyone.

    I have emailed banking consultant to cancel credit card asap. There are too many alarm bells ringing, even though I couldn't find any negative comments.

    The website on the scambook site was slightly different, but not worth the risk i think.

    Hopefully we will get it cancelled in time.

    Would love to hear from someone who had purchased from them.

    I hadn't actually been on the site yet... but the fact that the site is fitflopsaleAUSTRALIA.com..... the fact that there's no .au on the end says to me even though the domain name says Australia... the site isn't Australian. (to my understanding anyway).
    You probably already know.... but the official Australian website is fitflop.com.au.
    You'll notice the 'fitflop' logo is the same, I wouldn't be surprised if the scam company just copy/pasted the logo to seem legit.
    Hope the card was cancelled in time, even for a 'discount' site... that's a lot of money to lose over a scam >_<
