Why Is Orangigi Fake?

Orangigi is a website that claims to be selling various women’s clothing items such as robes, jumpsuits, dresses, tops and more at low prices.

The website has been created using Shoplazza which is the Chinese version of Shopify. This implies that Orangigi is a Chinese operation.

A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 8th May 2021. The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact information have been hidden using a paid service. Therefore, it is a new website being operated anonymously from a high-risk country.

The products on the site are not exclusive and they look like the usual products sold on sites in the ChicV Ltd. scam network.

I reviewed Babelary recently which looks like an exact copy of Orangigi. It was deduced as being a ChicV site being run under the name of a UK shell company called Bumperr Ltd.

As is the usual case with ChicV’s websites, the images are not actual photos of the products. Designs have been edited onto stock images of models.

Therefore, they are not accurate representations of the clothing that customers can expect to receive. The products that customers end up receiving are generally vastly different and highly disappointing.

The website is extremely shoddy and looks like it was made in a hurry. There is no real information except for the product listings and some generic policy pages. The spelling errors and dummy text hint that it was not created by professionals.

The About Us page contains the following text:

orangigi.com offers fast fashion at the designer boutique quality. Our team of professional buyers identify all the latest fashion trends, at the same time examine every detail of product quality. They work with emerging designers and brands worldwide, and together present collections of creative, trendy, high craftsmanship fashion on orangigi.com.

I found that this text is being used on at least 32 other websites, all of which may be scams. This list is given at the end of the article.

An IP address analysis reveals that almost all these sites are hosted on the same IP address. Therefore, this is a strong indication that all the sites are operated by the same owners.

The website contains absolutely no information about the company running it. The Privacy Policy page even misleadingly mentions that the website operates under UK laws, probably because it is being run under the name of a UK shell company, even though it is quite clear that Orangigi is likely to be run from China.

While testing the checkout process, I found that even the PayPal account being used by Orangigi is of a Chinese company. The account is named ‘广州落葵信息技术咨询中心’ which translates to ‘Guangzhou Luokui Information Technology Consulting Center’

There are no social media pages mentioned on the website itself. However, I found that Orangigi does have a Facebook page. The page information shows that it was previously named as Bonnana.

I tried visiting the website of Bonnana and it redirected me to Orangigi. This makes it evident that Orangigi is not a standalone brand but simply one among countless weirdly-named Chinese online clothing stores operated by the same company.

As mentioned earlier, there is no company information on the website such as a company name, phone number or address. There is not even a return address given. The only contact detail mentioned on the website is the email ID ‘info@lady-coat.com’.

Not only is this email address of a different website called Lady-coat, but I have also already reviewed the site and found it to be part of the Middle Bridge Scam Network. Therefore, it seems that Middle Bridge is simply yet another UK shell company under the ChicV scam network.

Additionally, at least 16 other websites are using this same email address and they seem to be part of the same scam network as per the IP address data.

There are no reviews available for Orangigi, which is not surprising considering that it was created just days ago. If the related websites are any indication, reviews might pour in within a couple of months and chances are high that they will be overwhelmingly negative.

The complaints will most likely be about bait-and-switch advertising, poor quality of clothing, non-delivery, long delivery times, poor customer service and refusal to provide refunds unless the items are shipped back to China at the customer’s own expense.

Conclusion

There are several signs suggesting that Orangigi might be part of the ChicV scam network of China. It is a new website being operated anonymously and has relations to several dubious websites.

The site has been created using Shoplazza which is a Chinese e-commerce platform. None of the content on the website is original. The same images and text can be found on several other websites, many of which have been determined to be scams.

The images of the products are not precise depictions of the products. Designs have been superimposed onto stock images of models. Therefore, customers are likely to receive clothing that looks and fits nothing like the images shown.

The text on the About Us page is also being used on at least 31 other websites, all of which may be scams. Almost all these sites have the same IP address as Orangigi, suggesting that they are likely operated by the same owners.

There is further indication of this on the Facebook page. The page was previously named Bonnana, which is a website that redirects to Orangigi. The email address given on the website is also of a different website called Lady-coat. This site was also found to be part of the Middle Bridge scam network of Chinese sites.

The PayPal account associated with the website is also of a Chinese company. The website has absolutely no company information and even the domain registration information has been hidden using a paid service. The Privacy Policy mentions that it is run under UK laws, even though all the signs indicate that Orangigi is a Chinese website.

It is advisable to avoid shopping on Orangigi or any of the 39 related websites, as there are strong reasons to believe that they may all be scams.

Remember, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
