Online Women’s Clothing Store
Is Nikicloth Fake or Real?
Why Is Nikicloth Fake?
Nikicloth is a website that claims to sell various women’s clothing items such as dresses, tops, coats, sweaters, shoes and more. The website looks like a typical low-quality Shopify store, much like the ones commonly covered on this blog.
Some research about the products being sold reveals that the images have been stolen from sources such as Pinterest and the prices are completely random. For example, an out-of-stock dress that is priced at $2,553 on Net-a-Porter is being sold for $32.99 on Nikicloth. Such too-good-to-be-true prices are often the most obvious sign of a scam.
A look at the About Us page of the website shows that it contains the following text:
we love every passion and interest on Earth because it is a reference to your UNIQUENESS.
This snippet of text immediately makes Nikicloth identifiable as being part of the Uniqueness/Passion & Interest scam networks. For more information on these, refer the below links:

Basically, the Uniqueness/Passion & Interest scam network is a web of hundreds of websites, Facebook pages and Pinterest accounts originating in China, seemingly set up for the explicit purpose of scamming customers. Read the articles above and watch the video for in-depth information. At the end of this article, there is an updated list of the websites and Facebook pages that fall under this network.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 12th October 2020 in Guang Dong, China. The registrant’s name and contact details have been hidden for privacy.
Even though Nikicloth is clearly operated from China, there is no mention of this on the website itself. The website mentions ‘Seamoonbaby Ltd.’, which is an actual company registered in the UK. The registration details of Seamoonbaby Ltd. reveal that it is actually owned by a company named Econ Technology Ltd. based on Hong Kong. Funny enough, Econ sounds like a perfect synonym of ‘online scam’.
The address of Seamoonbaby Ltd. is not an office address, rather, it is simply the location of a self-storage container. Therefore, it seems that Seamoonbaby Ltd. is a mere shell company, probably set up for money laundering.
Nikicloth does not seem to have a social media presence. The Contact Us page of the website only contains an email ID firstname.lastname@example.org, which is a completely different website. Myclothservice.com itself is not active, however, the email ID was found to be working. No phone number has been provided and the address given is of the storage container mentioned above.
There are no user reviews available for Nikicloth, which is not surprising considering that it is a new website. Going by the reviews of other websites in the Uniqueness/Passion & Interest network, you can expect to receive a low-quality counterfeit if you order from Nikicloth.
It seems quite obvious that Nikicloth is a scam. The images on the website seem to be copied from various sources such as Pinterest and the prices look like they are completely random. The About Us page content reveals that Nikicloth is actually a part of the Uniqueness/ Passion & Interest scam network.
The website tries to give the impression that it is operated by a British company called Seamoonbaby Ltd. However, this company seems to be a shell incorporation as the registered address is of a self-storage container. The details show that Seamoonbaby Ltd. is actually owned by a Hong Kong-based company named Econ Technology Ltd. Further, the domain name has been registered in Guang Dong, China, providing more evidence of a Chinese origin. It is advisable to avoid shopping on Nikicloth, as it seems to be a part of a Chinese network of online stores selling low-quality knock-offs.

How to Get Your Money Back from a Scam
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 Scamadviser, 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.
