Author of the article: Online shoppers are being warned about fraudulent retailers. Photo by Postmedia Network Article Sidebar The Better Business Bureau is warning online shoppers about phone retailers. The warning comes after a BBB investigation revealed that eight fraudulent online retailers used a residential address in Abbotsford to legitimize their website and convince consumers across North America to spend hundreds of dollars for nonexistent or inferior quality products. We apologize, but this video has failed to load. Try refreshing your browser, or The agency began receiving reports on its Scam Tracker about online retailers based in Abbotsford. Queries with the city revealed that there were no business licenses issued for the specific address or to the businesses Lemon Dresses, Comfyfree, Dress Stars, Modaboxs, Wearing Pearl.com, Instylewaye, Chicgoby and Theinnstyle Clothing. Investigations also revealed that the scammers hijacked the home address for a B.C. resident who has no connection to any of the businesses, and have been using it on these websites for several months. Advertisement Article content continued Victims of these shady retailers span all over North America, according to BBB. The agency has received reports from consumers in B.C, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Alberta and Ontario. There were also victims in California, Texas, Missouri, New Jersey, Michigan, Connecticut, New York, Oregon, Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts and Washington in the United States. BBB says victims lost between $80 and $300. One of the businesses, Chicgoby, has changed the address on their website to a location in Poland. BBB found that the new address, aleja Krakowska 163, 05-552 Wólka Kosowska, Poland, belongs to a footwear wholesaler named Sinda Wolka Kosowska, which seems to have no connections to Chicgoby. Also, the website for Comfyfree (http://comfyfree.com/) is no longer active. “Scammers continue to develop sophisticated schemes that not only victimize online shoppers, but also innocent members of the public and legitimate businesses,” said Karla Laird, a spokesperson BBB, in a statement Wednesday. “The scammers hijack addresses to make their websites appear trustworthy, and because consumers fail to research before buying, they are more susceptible to these kinds of scams.” Laird warns consumers that if they start receiving mail addressed to someone else with complaints or returned items, it is possible their address has been hijacked and they will need to investigate. BBB advises online shoppers to be wary of deals that are too good to be true, and to double check the business address. If shopping on an unfamiliar website, consumers should take some time to research the address and check business ratings at BBB.org. ticrawford@postmedia.com Share this Story: BBB warns of eight fraudulent online retailers with Abbotsford address
