Is Sweataetoo Fake or Real?
Why is Sweataetoo Fake?
Sweataetoo.com is a website that claims to be selling mass-produced Chinese clothing such as swimsuits, Hawaiian shirts and shoes at discounts. The website looks like another scam shop set up under the Uniqueness Scam Network of Chinese shopping scam websites. For example, the images on the website are edited and do not show the real clothing items that customers can expect to receive.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 15th November 2022 from China. The registrant’s other details such as name and contact details have not been provided. However, there are multiple indications of the site being operated from China. Therefore, Sweataetoo is a relatively new website being run anonymously from a high-risk country.
Even though it is clear that Sweataetoo originates from China, the Terms and Conditions page falsely states that the site operates as per the laws of the UK.
The Terms & Conditions page also contains the below details of a company registered in the UK:
Company Name: SAYHI INTERNATIONAL CO., LIMITED
Company Address: 102a Liverpool Road, Cadishead, Manchester, England, M44 5AN
Sayhi International Co., Limited appears to be a shell company registered from China as the owner is a Chinese-national named Lijian Liu and the Company Secretary is a Chinese-owned firm named Yunma Tianlong International Consulting Co., Limited. This company is associated with more than 9,150 companies registered in the UK and is presumably a firm that helps Chinese companies set up overseas incorporations.
The About Us page contains text that has apparently been copied from a website called Hello Molly. The page falsely states that Sweataetoo was founded in 2020 even though there is no evidence of this being true. Upon analyzing the content, I found that there are at least 16 similar websites, all of which are likely to be scams. The list of websites is given at the end of the article.
I noticed that the home page banner on Sweataetoo’s website contains the name of a completely different website called Lemongor. When I checked lemongor.com, I found that it contains the same text as Sweataetoo on the About Us page. The website is supposedly managed by Kentesh Ltd, which is a notorious Chinese shell company associated with the Uniqueness Scam Network of fake online stores from China.
Sweataetoo does not seem to have a social media presence as there are no pages linked on the website and I could not find any profiles independently either.
There are no contact details given on the website except for the email ID ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘. Uniqueness websites have a poor reputation for customer service, therefore the email ID is practically useless.
The Contact Us page also mentions the email ID of a completely different website called tourfel.com. When I visited this site, I found that it is identical to Sweataetoo and is operated by a company registered in Hong Kong:
Company Name: HLI TECHNOLOGY CO., LIMITED
Company Address: OFFICE UNIT, 11 ON 17TH FLOOR WITTY COMMERCIAL BUILDING NOS.1A/1L, TUNG CHOI STREET KL HONG KONG
I could not find any customer reviews for Sweataetoo on sites like ScamAdviser and Trustpilot. As the site seems to be operated by the Uniqueness Scam Network, customers can expect false advertising, products being shipped from China, late or no delivery, poor customer service and refusal to provide refunds.
If you want to share your review of this website, you can do so in the comments below or on my social media pages.
It is apparent that Sweataetoo, Lemongor, Tourfel and the 14 similar sites are all likely to be scams operated by Chinese cybercrime networks under the façade of shell companies such as Sayhi International Co., Limited and Kentesh Ltd. registered in the UK.
Sweataetoo is a new site created anonymously from China in November 2022. The website owners have obscured the site’s Chinese origin and are claiming that it is managed by a UK-based business named Sayhi International Co., Limited. However, Sayhi International Co., Limited has been found to be a shell company created from China and is associated with numerous fake online shops.
Even though there are multiple signs that Sweataetoo is a Chinese website, there is a false statement in the T&C that the site operates as per UK laws.
All the content on the website is copied and the images are edited. Therefore, they are not accurate representations of the clothing that customers can expect to receive.
Sweataetoo does not seem to have a social media presence. Only an email ID is provided for support and no customer reviews could be found. It is advisable to avoid shopping on Sweataetoo, Lemongor, Tourfel and the 14 similar sites as they do not seem to be genuine businesses.
If you think that you have been scammed by any of these sites, you can contact your bank for a full refund. Don’t accept a partial refund citing that the product is not what you ordered and refuse to ship the items back to China as the merchant claims to be located in the UK.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
