Ninebot & Amazon Promo on Facebook – Is It a Scam?
According to our investigations, it is all a scam. No, Amazon is not giving away Ninebot Scooter for such cheap prices. Far from it! You’re being tricked by a clever bunch of scammers.
Why do I say so?
The pages offering the Ninebot Promo are all fake pages without the verified badge.
When you click on the link, and visit the website, below is what happens –
- You’d be taken to a different website that has absolutely nothing to do with Ninebot or Amazon.
- You’ll be made to sign up for membership. This means providing your personal information and your credit card details
- $79 subscription fee or more would be debited from your credit card
- You wouldn’t be able to contact the customer service to request for a chargeback
We’ve seen this happen many times, like that of Dyson.
This is exactly how the scam works. Here are some of the websites offering the £1.78 Ninebot scooter:
On the other hand, beware of the following Facebook pages –
- Promo Ninebоt GB
- Ninebot Promo Hungary
- Ninebot ES2
- Segway Promo
- KickScooter Ninebot ES2
- Ninebot&Amazon Promo
As you can see, the scam targets people living in European countries. What these Facebook pages have in common is this – absence of Facebook verified blue tick, Fake £1.78 promo, Fake comments etc.
What should you do if you’ve already submitted your financial details to these suspicious sites?
- Inform your Bank
- Have your credit card cancelled
- Report the Facebook page
- Share this review to warn your family and friends
