Don’t Fall for Clearance Sale Scam is currently making waves online for its clearance sale of kitchen utensil sets, garden lights, etc. Unfortunately, the moving out sale isn’t real or legit.

First of all, the website is using an email address ‘[email protected]’ that is associated with numerous scam sites posing as online stores. The question you should ask is this; Why’d anyone involve in a scam offer you a legit deal? Of course, the person behind doesn’t have genuine intentions.

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

I’ve provided links, reports, and images supporting my verdict.

Exposing Scam

The website runs Ads on numerous platforms; Facebook, Instagram & TikTok promoting discounted items. The Ad claims the store is shutting down soon, reason for its 90% discount.

However, after placing order, customers do not receive the items or anything at all. The tracking does not work, and every effort to contact the store turns out futile.

The scammers behind bait buyers with low prices on items, and immediately go silent after collecting payment.

Often times, they’d promise a 30% refund, claiming the inventory is out of stock. However, it’s all part of the scam. There’s no product, and if customers fail to request for a chargeback, the scammers would return only 30% and keep the rest to themselves.
