exposed as Scam: Fake QVC Clearance Sale

Do not fall for QVC Clearance sale. The website is not really legit. There’s a lot of fraudulent practises happening behind the scene.

As a Cybersecurity analyst actively fighting cybercrimes, I’ve taken my time to investigate, and my findings reveal it’s a scam.

Below are my findings, with images, reports and links to back up my verdict.

Exposing Its QVC Clearance Sale Scam

The website runs Ads on social media promoting QVC clearance sale and limited sales offer. Using QVC logo and product images, it looks real and legit.

However, after placing an order, customers do not receive the items purchase. The tracking does not work, and after some while it says ‘delivered’.

The scammers behind pretend to be QVC, bait buyers with low prices, and immediately go silent after collecting payment.

Below are reports from victims of this scam –

 ordered on 1/13/24, set of fold up shelving and the tracking states it was delivered but we have not received it. Emailed back and forth with Joyce who said it was delivered but would give me a small percent discount.


I ordered shelves because it said it was QVC overstock. I haven’t received anything or tracking information.

Suspicious Nature

This website poses as a QVC outlet on social media but interestingly has a generic image on its website. There’s no mention of QVC anywhere, not even on its About Us page. This is actually common with fraudulent websites. They use generic website design so they can easily change whatever brand they’re impersonating on social media.
