Women’s clothing and accessories store
Is Aireri Fake or Real?
Why Is Aireri Fake?
Aireri is a website that claims to be selling Bohemian clothing and accessories such as dresses, t-shirts, bottoms, shoes and more at low prices. The site is advertising Boho handbags on social media.
The images on the website look like they have been copied from sites like Pinterest, which is an indication that customers might end up receiving imitations.
The website has been created using Shoplazza, which is a Chinese e-commerce platform. This implies that Aireri is a Chinese website, even though there is no mention of this on the site itself.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 8th March 2021. The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact details have been hidden using a paid service. Therefore, it is a new website being operated anonymously, apparently from a high-risk country.
Even though the site clearly did not exist before March 2021, the website footer mentions the copyright date as 2020. This is a blatant lie.
The website has almost no content except for the product listings and generic policy pages. The About Us page of the website contains the following text:

I found that the same text is being used on at least 58 other websites. Thanks to Qti.ai’s Scami algorithm, I got a list of 165 additional websites that are also using the same content. These sites may all be scams and the full list is given at the end of the article.
Many of these sites, such as Citykoko, StyleWe, Lilicloth and Mikilinen have been determined to have a high likelihood of being scams. They seem to be part of the Orderplus Scam Network consisting of thousands of websites running e-commerce scams.
An IP address analysis of these sites reveals that 212 out of 222 (95.5%) websites have shared or neighbouring IP addresses, suggesting that they may all be operated by the same owner.
Aireri itself shares the same IP address as 94 of these sites. Therefore, there are strong reasons to believe that Aireri may not be a stand-alone brand but one among a large network of websites run by Chinese criminals.
While testing the checkout process, I found that credit cards are the only payment method accepted on the site. It is a bit odd that customers are being given only a single option for payments.
If you have ordered from this website, let me know what’s the company name on your card statement.
Though there are no social media pages mentioned on the website, I found that Aireri has at least 3 separate Facebook pages.
The page description falsely states that Aireri has been active since 2017. There is also a phone number given that carries the country code of Hong Kong. This is another sign of Aireri being a Chinese website.
All three pages have been created on the same day and are being used for advertising on Facebook and Instagram.
The contact details mentioned on the website include an email ID and company address. It is stated that Aireri is ‘owned and operated’ by the company ‘Eusogo Ltd’.
This is impossible as Eusogo Ltd. was dissolved in February 2020, more than a year before Aireri’s site was created. Therefore, the company details provided are fake and the only way to contact Aireri is by email.
Another Chinese connection was also discovered as the owner of Eusogo Ltd. is shown as being ‘Macanese’. Macau is an administrative region of China.
The only review I could find for Aireri is a comment on a Youtube video by someone saying they got scammed. No other details have been provided.

It seems evident that Aireri and the 233 related websites may all be part of the Orderplus scam network originating from China.
The website was created in March 2021 using the Shoplazza platform. The registrant’s details have not been provided and nor does the website contain any real company information. Therefore, it is a new website being operated anonymously from China, which is infamous for a high number of online scams.
Even though the website obviously didn’t exist before March 2021, the site’s footer claims that it has been active since 2020. The Facebook page information states that it is operating since 2017. There is no reason to believe that any of those statements are true.
None of the content on the website seems to be original. The images look like they have been copied from other sites such as Pinterest. The text is copied too as the same can be found on at least 233 other sites, all of which may be scams.
These sites all seem to be related as they share not only the content but also have shared or neighbouring IP addresses. This indicates that they may all be operated by the same owner.
Aireri is running at least three different Facebook pages and all of them have been created on the same day. All these pages are also being used for advertising on Facebook and Instagram. No legitimate brand creates multiple pages on the same platform, making this behaviour particularly suspicious.
The pages also contain a Hong Kong phone number, once again showing that Aireri is a Chinese website. The contact details given on the website are an email ID and company address. The email ID was found to be working when tested.
However, the proclamation that ‘the website is owned and operated by Eusogo Ltd.’ is an obvious lie. This is because the company was dissolved in February 2020, more than a year before Aireri’s website was even created. Therefore, the only way to contact Aireri is by email.
It is advisable to avoid shopping on Aireri or any of the 233 related websites, as they are likely to be part of a Chinese scam network.
If you feel that you have been scammed by any of these sites, you can apply for a chargeback from your bank or card company.
Remember, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
