Is Luxypun Fake or Real?
Why is Luxypun Likely Fake?
Luxypun is an online clothing store which claims to sell a variety of women’s wear such as dresses, swimwear, body shapers, shoes and more. A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 5th April 2020. The registrant’s name and location have been blocked for privacy.
Luxypun doesn’t seem to have any original content. The text and products all seem to be copied from other sites. The clothing items are the same as those available on the website of Fashion Effect Store, which is a physical store in California.
There are contact details provided on the website such as an email ID, phone number, address and the name Aley Sports. I am unsure whether this is supposed to be the business name or a person’s name. The email ID seems to be legitimate as it is active.
Looking up the location on google maps revealed that it is a residence in New York. Meanwhile, the phone number given has the area code of Detroit and the name was displayed as Dina Salame in TrueCaller.
Luxypun doesn’t have a social media presence and I couldn’t find any customer reviews. Considering the available information, I have to guess that Luxypun is a fake website.
The products are directly lifted from the website of the Fashion Effect Store. The address given does not belong to a business and the phone number has the area code of a different state. The lack of social media profiles is also a bit concerning and there are no reviews available to confirm that it is an authentic business.
Due to these factors, I cannot recommend users to shop with Luxypun. Sharing your payment details on this website could expose you to the risk of phishing.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
If you have been the victim of an ecommerce scam, you can take the following steps:
- Lodge a complaint at the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal
- File a complaint with the payment portal and ask whether the payment can be reversed.
- File a complaint with the Consumer Complaints Forum
- Leave a negative review on review portals such as ScamAdvisor, TrustPilot, OnlineThreatAlerts and SiteJabber
- Report the website to Google using the Suspicious Site Reporter extension for Chrome
- Give a low rating to the website on Web of Trust. You can also install their extension for the same.
