Scam Alert Facebook Pandora Jewelry
Recently, some of my clients have suffered a scam perpetrated via Facebook of a very well done site, http://www.pandorashopus.com/. If you come across this on your Facebook you will see that it has a countdown clock giving customers one day to order the very popular Pandora Jewelry.
As you enter the website you will see the jewelry priced very cheap. In most cases less than $10.00. Which goes back to previous posts I have made about deals that are too good to be true. The fact is, if something looks, smells or taste to be too good to be true, then count on it, IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.
Pandora Jewelry whose telephone number is 410-309-0200 confirmed with our office that the offer that appears on Facebook is not an authorized dealer for Pandora Jewelry. They advised that this was a scam and anyone who made a purchase via the internet should contact their financial institution immediately and stop payment.
In our case, shortly after the purchase was made by our client they received an email from from PayPal that said “You paid Reitmans,Shenzhen,CN, $27.99 USD.” This corresponded with the confirmation of the order placed to the www.pandorashopus.com website.
My recommendation for anyone who may have placed an order with this site is to contact your financial institution and give them all the information that you have received through your email.
During this time of year, especially with all of the event sales such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you as a consumer need to be wary of any and all offerings on the internet. This is the time of year that scammers hit. Looking at this website, you will find it appearing very authenticate and something you would assume Pandora would publish. But when you see a silver bracelet that normally sells for 137.99, offered for 16.99, something is wrong.
Hope your holiday shopping will go smoothly and hopefully this will help you avoid this scam.
