I Thought You Should Be Aware
Warning! Scam Website
I just saw this Face Book Advertisement listing kayak’s for an incredibly low price of $99. Is this deal to good to be true? We’ll you know what they say…. Read on for my evaluation
Break Down The Scam Site
It’s the detail that leads you to determine that this has to be a scam site. Here’s what to look for.
Several things didn’t add up when I started looking at this site.
As you can see by looking at my screen clippings above and my descriptions to the right, the site is giving a heads up that something isn’t quite right.
Check Pricing Using Google
Do a Google Shopping search to see what the current street price is for the item. In this case the price difference is HUGE!
Fake Review Stars
Those stars are fake. They do not link to a Google review. Yet another indicator this site is bogas.
Verify With Another Site
You can do a search on the site name and the word review(s) to see if you can find anything. When I did this I found a trust site which rates this website as questionable.
Look At Social Links
It could be an oversight by the webmaster but it’s a good indicator that things aren’t adding up. They all point to the website not a social site.
Low Res Images
Look at the images used on the site. Several, including the company logo are low resolution (blurry). No self respecting sales site would allow blurry images.
Still Too Good To Be True
I found a site selling just the motor console for the Old Town Predator XL. So just the motor console is retailing for $1,199.99
Motor Console Retails for $1,199.99
More Evidence Of A Scam Site
Kayak Ships For Free?
