TheSeasonOffers Scam Network – 67 websites
Online Men’s Clothing Store
Is TheSeasonOffers Fake or Real?
Why Is TheSeasonOffers Fake?
TheSeasonOffers is a website that claims to be selling men’s shirts in various materials and patterns. The website is of extremely low-quality as it contains low-resolution images and badly-written English. The images seem to be copied from international websites, especially Polo Mano and the prices are too good to be true.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 14th September 2020 in Delhi, India. The registrant’s details such as name and contact details have not been provdided.
The About Us page content mentions the website name as ‘Accessories offer’ instead of ‘The Season Offers’. This suggests that it is a recycled template from another website. The text on the page is also being used by at least 30 other websites. Therefore, the content on the website is clearly copied.
The products being sold on the website are not original either. There are around 30 more websites that are selling the same kind of shirts at unbelievable prices.
When I checked their IP addresses, I found that almost all of them are hosted on the same server. This means that the websites are part of an organized scam network of websites that have been set up for the specific purpose of defrauding customers. The full list of websites is given at the end of the article.
The website of TheSeasonOffers also has an empty page called Electronics. This does not make sense unless you consider that there are other websites in the same scam network claiming to sell electronics instead of clothes.
The Refund & Returns policy on the website is also fake as it provides information that has nothing to do with the website.
TheSeasonOffers does not seem to have a social media presence. The contact details provided on the website are a phone number, email ID and address. The email ID was found to be fake when tested using VerifyEmailAddress.
The address seems to be fake too as it is being used by many other websites. These websites all seem to be scams as they have negative reviews against them.
The same phone number given on TheSeasonOffers has also been used by the scam websites mentioned above. All these websites are using the number +91 9817203045. The number is shown as belonging to Jogeendra Tejaniya from Haryana on TrueCaller.
However, either the name is fake or the number given by TheSeasonOffers is a random one. When I checked the number on WhatsApp, I was able to find out that the number seems to belong to someone named Bhupendra Singh from Uttarakhand.
No real customer reviews for TheSeasonOffers could be found. The only review I came across was a fake complaint that looks like it has been written by a different scammer.
It seems quite obvious that TheSeasonOffers is a scam. It is part of a scam network of 60+ websites that are defrauding customers by claiming to sell items such as electronics and clothing. The website contains copied text and the same products are being sold by many of the websites in the scam network.
The images on TheSeasonOffers have been copied from various websites, especially Polo Mano. The prices are much lower than the legitimate websites, which is a strong signal that TheSeasonOffers is a scam.
The contact details provided on the website all seem to be fake. The email ID provided does not work. The address and phone number are being used by multiple scam websites. Though the website is registered in Delhi, the address given is of Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The phone number was shown as being active in Haryana by TrueCaller. Therefore, both the domain registration information and address given on the website seem to be fake.
The phone number is also being used on multiple scam websites and is marked as a scam on TrueCaller. The name is displayed as Jogeendra Tejaniya, however, this seems to be a fake name. I was able to get the vehicle registration number of the person using the number through their WhatsApp display picture and it was revealed that the number seemingly belongs to a person named Bhupendra Singh from Uttarakhand. Of course, the phone number could be a completely random one that does not actually belong to the scammers.
There are at least 47 websites hosted on the same server as TheSeasonOffers, many of which have been found to be scams. It is advisable to not shop on the website as it looks like it has been created by professional criminals.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
