I ordered a pair of boots from them that I found a good deal via google. Brown Shoes, I thought – that’s a solid brand, and what a great deal. I notice the site was a little ‘old’ looking, and (stupidly) didn’t take a lot of time looking around. If I had of, I would have noticed that just about *everything* on the site was listed for ~$95 dollars.
I paid, went to bed, but when I woke up the next morning and looked around the site for other great deals, noticed that it definitely wasn’t Brown’s. And it was definitely sketchy. And then I looked at https://www.scamadviser.com/check-website/brownshoes2017.ca and noticed it was all China based, not Canadian as I originally thought. And then I got worried.
I tried cancelling via web form. No dice. No response.
Then I got notice of shipment.
Then I got a pair of boots, completely wrong brand (“Caterpillar” vs “Thorogood”), completely different in look, and not even for sale on their site. Furthermore, they look like counterfeit Caterpillars as well.
I’ve asked for refund and return 5 times. They keep telling me that it isn’t worth my time, it will be very expensive for me to ship back, that they might get lost (even though they got here fine), that I should just keep them and sell them locally, etc.
I’ll be following up with the bank to cancel the cc charges, but don’t go through here. It’s a ridiculous scam.
